Wi-Fi Sync is an iPhone app that does just what the name suggests — it lets you sync an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad with iTunes without plugging in a USB cable. There’s just one problem — it’s not available in the iTunes App Store yet, and as TechCrunch points out, there’ s a decent chance that Apple will reject the app.

In a nutshell, Apple could have provided this feature years ago, since the hardware clearly supports it. But USB connections are more secure, and much faster than WiFi connections.

Of course, Apple shocked the world recently by approving the submission of a web browser that’s not Safari into the App Store — so anything is possible.

You can check out a video of Wi-Fi Sync in action after the break.

Update: The developer has put out a second video, showing how long it takes to transfer some music files over WiFi. You can find that video after the break as well.
