    Default iTunes - how to separate the library for 2 devices?

    Hello,

    there are:

    • 1 iPhone
    • 1iPod Touch


    Each of them need different music and different apps.

    I have iTunes and I use it with the iPhone to sync and backup.

    The iPod is connected to the computer just for backup and battery charge. I would like to have a separate library of music and apps for it. I don't want for eg. to have in the iPod the same apps the iPhone has... I cannot sync it.


    Is there any way to have 2 devices, 1 iTunes and 2 libraries?

    You can do this in multiple ways.

    1. Sync from a separate computer account - that keeps things 100% separate.
    2. Switch libraries at iTunes launch (with How to open an alternate iTunes Library file or create a new one )
    3. One library and configure playlists which contain the music you want to sync for each device.


    Probably other solutions but these were the three that immediately came to mind.
