Does using your device while syncing slow the process?

    Just wondering.
    I'm sitting here browsing on my iPad while at the same time syncing it with iTunes and I was wondering if it slows the process.
    Does anyone know for sure one way or the other?

    No. I don't believe it does. Using while charging does slow charging though.

    Logically, it makes sense that the syncing process would be slowed down, the computer reading and writing data while the phone is also reading and writing data is no different from reading and writing data on a USB device while also moving data which does slow down the USB device. I've noticed much slower sync when using my device especially when the device is importing large apps to the computer.

    I guess it all depends on how many threads are used

    Realistically, are you going to notice a difference?

    iPhone 4 or iPad 2, more likely, iPhone 5S or Air, not as much (and likely not noticeable) but still dependent on the demands of the App you are using (and a number of other factors).
