In the Info pane, when you sync mail accounts, only the settings are transferred from your computer to iPhone. Changes you make to a mail account on iPhone don’t affect the account on your computer. In the Info pane, click Advanced to select options that let you replace the information on iPhone with the information from your computer during the next sync. In the Photo pane, you can sync photos and videos from a folder on your computer.If you use iCloud to store your contacts, calendars, and bookmarks, don’t also sync them to iPhone using iTunes.Date and timeThe date and time are usually set for you based on your location—take a look at the Lock screen to see if they’re correct.
