    Question regarding wireless syncing. Is there a setting to manually schedule when the syncing will occur? I understand that it will generally happen at night, when the iOS device is plugged in. However is there a way to schedule it at a specific hour, say 3 a.m.? If not, does anyone know the specific hour that it will happen?

    It appears that it begins the second you plug the device into a power source, rather than at a set time.

    I see no options for scheduling the sync.

    It turns out you actually don't need to be connected to a power source to do a wi-fi sync. You can go into Settings->General->iTunes Wi-Fi Sync and press the Sync Now button to initiate a sync at any time.

    As far as scheduling a certain time to sync, I don't think there is any way to do it yet. I'm sure somebody will make a utility to do it if it is indeed possible.
