    Anyone else notice ipad takes much longer to sync than the iphone? Maybe it's just my set up but both my ipad2 and ipad3 take far longer to sync than my iphone4. its always been like this too way before the new ipad came out.

    my iphone is full to capacity and it still sync's very quick,like about a minute or less but both ipads can take up to 4 almost 5 minutes to finish. one of the hold ups i noticed with ipad is when it gets to the photos portion of the sync,that takes up about 80% of the time..so much longer i had to delete all of my photo folders except for a few..down to about 600 photos not including camera roll..

    any ideas??

    I noticed that on my iPad 2 (before iOS 5 came out). iPad would take significantly longer to sync. Now I just let it sync itself to iCloud when it's plugged into the charger. I haven't plugged either device into the computer in months.
