How do you "untrust" a computer in iOS 7? RE: The new feature in iOS 7 that prompts you to trust a new computer when you plug your iPhone/iPad in.

Thanks.

Problem is I already "TRUSTED" the computer, but it was a friends. I thought it would be a temporary trust, that I could remove from my iPhone itself.

:confused:

Makes sense. Until someone enlightens us I'm not sure how to remove that trust. I guess the lesson learned is not to trust so easily haha.

It has nothing to do with a cable. It is asking if you want to trust the computer. The trust attribute has to be stored somewhere. The OP is asking how and where that value is stored.

I know what he's asking about and I was trying to say the Trust session is only temporary from what I have seen (most of the time). Disconnect the cable and plug it back in immediately and you'll be prompted for "Trust this computer" again.


Now I do have one computer that it's not prompting me. I'm not sure why. Could be because I have done a sync before.

If he's asking if there is a section in setting where he can remove the trust manually, then no. I dont think any of us has seen this before.

"Reset all settings" seems to do this. Of course it's annoying as you have to reconfigure all your preferences, but if you absolutely must untrust a computer...

When plugging into my work's Windows box (without iTunes), it asks to trust every time I plug it in. Any idea how I can permanently trust this box?

Ziggie,

This only works if you unplug the phone before hitting trust/don't trust or don't trust.

Once you trust the computer, that's it, it will not reprompt you.


Now I am making some progress - Under Settings>General> iTunes Wi-Fi Sync, you will see a list of all the computers you've trusted. I don't see a way to delete them, unfortunately. :confused::confused::confused: .

iTunes is required to keep the trust permanent, (or so it would seem) :mad:

Trusted computers then show up under Settings>General>iTunes Wi-Fi Sync

Tell it that it let you down and, therefore, it has shaken the firm foundations that you thought you'd built together. ;)

Seriously it works.

Like I said, I do have one laptop that it's not prompting and I'm not sure why. For all others, both mac and pc, it prompts every time.

Here is a video, ignore the music, i'm watching kings of leon concert.

Cant be, I had selected trust with several random laptops and it's not listed here. Only my laptops-desktop that I had previously synced with is listed.

Faulty Cable? Or Different or faulty USB port on your computer? I've only had to 'trust' each computer once, except when I would have to do fresh installs between betas and the GM. 'Trust' is learned by the iOS device, it would be just silly to have to hit trust every single time you plug your phone in.

No iTunes = Won't remember trust

Just noticed, it's the sync that save the trust. I'm not sure if this can be removed manually though.

Macbook - never synced - not listed on wifi sync - ask for trust
Win laptop 1 - never synced - not listed on wifi sync - ask for trust
Win laptop 2 - ran a manual backup - not listed on wifi sync - does not ask for trust
Win server - cabled synced - listed on wifi sync - does not ask for trust

Wrong/Incorrect. Trust IS learned.

Exactly, User-selected "Trust" is not saved. Automatic "Trust" is simply granted based on the fact that you're connecting to a computer that the device is set up to sync with.

I have to "Trust" my computer at work AND my Mac each and every time I plug in my iPod Touch 5th gen because I don't sync it with either computer. I have to "Trust" my computer at work every time I plug in my iPad because I've never synced with it.

I have plugged my phone in 5 different computers. I have trusted all of them. I have only synced with one of them. I am not required to 're-trust' any of the computers the next time I plug it in. Therefore, trust must be learned and permanent. I've tested this with my iPhone 5 and my iPad 2. If you or others are experiencing something different there could be a bug in the OS or device related. OR mine is the exception and not the rule. Regardless, I do not have to 're-trust' every time I plug my phone in.

It could very well be a bug, but my experience has been consistent with 5 development devices and at least 4 computers through several rounds of betas and now the GM.

I get the same behavior as Mlrollin91.
