Syncing via wifi only? How about via USB cable?

Is there a way that you can setup syncing via USB cable? Everytime there is a bug where we have to delte all of the content to fix syncing it takes days to resync everything. Sometimes weeks. Wifi is just too slow for syncing now. Can you add a syncing via USB cable for phones?

    You need to upgrade your wifi

    The speed limit is probably the read speed of the drive your synced media is stored on

    As long as your wifi is faster than that. USB won't gain you anything.

    If your sync folder is on a USB 2 drive. It will take forever to sync no matter how the iOS device is connected.

    I am using a Unifi access point. The wifi speeds are fine. Also the hard drive is fine as well. It seems to me like the issue may be the iPhone app and the iPhone itself. It must be the bottleneck.

    So was this ever fixed? When will this be addressed in the iPhone app?
