Multiple iPad/iPhones synced to the same computer

    I know there is a "five-device" rule that applies sharing content from iTunes. Does that rule also apply to iPads/iPhones?

    Right now my account lists "four devices" but I have at least 3 computers (I think it might be four) and at least an iPhone and an iPad (plus a "loaner" iPad that I used for a few days before getting my own and never really unauthorized.) This would make the total at least 5 and maybe more. Plus I will eventually end up getting at least another iPad and maybe another iPhone (no, not all for me) -- will I be able to sync all of these devices to the same iTunes account?

    Any advice on limits of how many iDevices can be synced to a single computer/iTunes account?

    Only computers count toward the 5 devices. You can have an unlimited number of iPads, iPhones and iPods synced to an iTunes account.

    To further set your mind at ease, I currently have:
    • 2 iPhones
    • 2 iPod Touches
    • 6 other iPods (various types/generations)
    • iPad
    All synced to one computer.
