    What exactly does iTunes helper do? Does it help anything? It's listed as a login item for my iMac, but not on my new MacBook Pro.

    Just curious if it helps anything.

    iTunes Helper launches iTunes automatically when you plug in an iDevice.

    You can disable it if you want, but it won't make a performance difference either way.
