Disable AppleMobileDeviceService.Exe, iTunesHelper.exe and iPodService.exe

itunesUsers of the Microsoft Windows operating system who install the music manager iTunes will notice a large number of background processes that are connected to that program. The processes that all users are going to see are AppleMobileDeviceService.Exe, iTunesHelper.exe and iPodService.exe with some running in the background even if iTunes has not been opened since system start.
At least two of the processes seem to be connected to mobile devices like Apple’s iPod or iPhone which seems like a waste of system resources if none of these devices are owned by the computer user. To say it more clearly: Why would someone need to run these processes if they do not need them? The following paragraphs will show how to disable the three processes AppleMobileDeviceService.Exe, iTunesHelper.exe and iPodService.exe effectively.
Disable AppleMobileDeviceService.Exe
AppleMobileDeviceService.Exe is a Windows Service that “provides the interface to Apple mobile devices”. It does not therefor make sense to run this service if no Apple mobile devices are owned by the user. The easiest way to disable the service is to press [Windows R], type in the run box [services.msc] and press the [enter] key on the computer keyboard.
This opens the Services window which displays all Windows Services. Locate the service Apple Mobile Device, right-click it and select Properties from the menu. Click on the Stop button first to stop the AppleMobileDeviceService.Exe service from running in this session.
Now click on the Startup type menu and change the type from Automatic to Disabled. A click on the Apply button will complete the process of disabling AppleMobileDeviceService.Exe.
Disable iTunesHelper.exe
The ituneshelper.exe process is also running in the background all the time. This process is however started from one of the autorun locations. Getting rid of it is quite easy. Press [Windows R], type in [msconfig.exe] and hit the [enter] key on the computer keyboard.
Switch to the Startup tab on top of the window and locate the iTunesHelper entry there. Uncheck that entry to disable the autostart of it when Windows starts. A click on Apply will complete the process. You do not need to restart Windows at this time.
Disable iPodService.exe
This one is tricky. IpodService.exe is a Windows Service. The problem is that it will be launched by iTunes even if the service is set to be disabled. Closing iTunes on the other hand will not close the iPodService.exe from running in the background. Here is what needs to be done to get rid of this process as well.
Open Windows Services again by pressing [Windows R], typing in [services.msc] and hitting the [enter] key. Locate the service iPodService. It is described as “iPod hardware management service”. Right-click the service, click on the Stop button if it is running and set it to disabled in the startup type menu.
The second step is needed as iPodservice.exe will be launched by iTunes even if it has been disabled. Locate the file iPod iPodservice.exe on the computer hard drive. It is by default installed into Program Files\iPod\bin.
Delete iPodservice.exe from the /bin/ directory and create a new text document. Give the text document the same name (iPodservice.exe). You should now have a 0 Kilobyte iPodservice.exe file in the /bin/ folder. To test if the procedure worked start iTunes. If everything worked out fine iPodservice.exe should not have been started and should not show up as a process in the Windows Task Manager.
Verdict: Windows users who want to use iTunes but do not own an iPod or other Apple device can now disable unneeded processes from their computer system. It does not make sense having them run in the background all the time.


The free file information forum can help you find out if iTunesHelper.exe is a virus, trojan, spyware, adware which you can remove, or a file belonging to a Windows system or an application you can trust.

External information from Paul Collins:

  • "iTunes Helper" must run at start up. Installed with Apple's iTunes for Windows. Uses ~3-4MB of memory and if disabled in MSCONFIG or deleted from the registry it will re-instate itself after running iTunes a few times - hence the reluctant Y recommendation
Important: Some malware camouflage themselves as iTunesHelper.exe, particularly if they are located in c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder. Thus check the iTunesHelper.exe process on your pc whether it is pest. We recommend Security Task Manager for verifying your computer's security.

iHome iH8 Dual-Alarm Clock Radio for Your iPod

Last year, iHome debuted a deluxe clock radio called iH7, which as a $150 sequel to its incredibly popular $100 2005 release iH5 offered several innovations: an improved backlight dimmer, twin alarms, three total speakers -- one on a cable that could be placed on the other side of a two-person bed -- a guaranteed remote control in the box, and user-adjustable bass and treble controls. Though more expensive than iH5, iH7 was considerably better, and definitively superior alternatives were hard to find.

Now the company has released iH8 ($100), which like the less-known, same-priced iH6 is a slightly stripped-down version of iH7 at a lower price. Available in three colors—iH8B (shown here) is black, while iH8W is white, and iH8S is silver—all of the unit’s functions and omissions are covered in our prior review of iH7, which we won’t rehash here except to note differences. In short, iH8 isn’t an innovative or exciting new offering, and in fact is growing old from an aesthetic standpoint, but it’s more than competent for the price, and recommendable overall.

For those keeping track of iHome product revisions, the company’s numbering system used to make a bit more sense than it does at the moment. iH5 was its flagship single-alarm clock radio, while less expensive, simpler versions were subsequently released as iH4 and iH3. iH7 was its first three-speaker, dual-alarm clock radio, later followed by the two-speaker, dual-alarm iH6; unlike the iH5, which sometimes included a remote and sometimes didn’t, both H6 and iH7 were guaranteed to include remote controls. Back then, remotes were rarities in sub-$100 iPod speakers; now they’re increasingly common.

iH8 is a modestly changed iH6: it no longer has a dock for the first-generation iPod shuffle on the top, which was found on iH6 and iH7, and now includes the iH7’s dedicated rear port for a third speaker, which was not found on iH6. But it doesn’t include the third speaker itself, and modest cosmetic adjustments have been made to its included remote control and its casing. iH8 uses a faux brushed metal texture rather than a glossy finish for part of its top, and its remote has color-matched rather than contrasting buttons.

These differences are trivial, and belie the major similarities that iH8 has with most of its predecessors. From the outside, you could barely tell the difference between the iH8, the iH5, iH6, and iH7: they all have similar blue-backlit clock radio screens with dimmers, a unified metal grille with two total speaker drivers inside, dials and buttons on the top, and buttons and switches on the back. Aside from its remote, iH8 includes a non-detachable rear FM antenna, detachable AM antenna, power supply, Dock Adapters for both 5G iPods and iPod nanos, and an auxiliary audio cable for attachment to iPod shuffles.

Put next to one another, iH8 and iH7 sound the same, work exactly the same but for the omission of the optional third speaker and the shuffle dock, and have the same limitations. On a positive note, that makes iH8 a solidly equipped alarm clock for its $100 asking price, just as iH6 was at the time of its release. iHome’s dual alarms are independently set and activated with simple top-mounted buttons, and radio presets are easy to call up with four top-mounted, dedicated buttons. Bass and treble controls provide modest user adjustment of the unit’s default settings, and the rear buttons and switches provide straightforward if not streamlined ways to adjust iH8’s time and date.

However, competitors such as XtremeMac and Philips have recently been improving the sound quality, aesthetics and alarm features of their twin-speaker alarm clocks, while iHome has sat comparatively still. Consequently, the brand new iH8 felt somewhat old on arrival, and possessed of too many buttons, dials, and switches to handle comparatively fewer features than, say, XtremeMac’s Luna, which unlike iH8 lets you set each of the alarms to whatever source and volume you desire, provides better dimmer and display options, and has other benefits, albeit at a higher price. In our view, though iH8 is a good clock radio for the dollar, every quality competitor makes an update to the standard iH-series body increasingly necessary; tweaks to its screen, body shape, and controls would increase its appeal in light of newer alternative designs.

iHome iH8

iHome's iH8 is an excellent, if slightly expensive, iPod dock and clock radio. It has a number of great features and its basic functions are well-implemented. With decent sound quality and ease of use, the iH8 is versatile for home use but its price tag may deter some users.
The iH8 has a simple but attractive design; it is available in gloss white or black. The white fascia suits the iPod's original colour theme, but we were more impressed with the black version, which has a slight wood grain. There is a simple LCD at the front, and backlit buttons and two large dials on top of the device.
The device's radio allows for up to 12 station presets, four across each of two FM bands and the AM band. It can charge iPods, except for the third-generation versions. The iH8 also allows basic control of an attached iPod.
The iH8 is accompanied by a small remote that controls most of the features on the device, including changing tracks, volume levels, equaliser settings and radio presets. Switching between iPod and radio functions is simple, though we would have preferred the iPod button to have a clearer label.
Although an iPod is attached via its dock connector, users are unable to navigate the iPod's menus in order to choose music, as is possible using other devices such as the Creative I-Trigue 3000i. It is still possible to skip tracks or adjust the volume, however.
Those looking to purchase an iPhone when it is released locally can be assured that it will work with the iH8. We were able to use the device to charge an iPhone and to play music. Users should note that the iH8's speakers are not magnetically shielded, and will frequently be subject to magnetic interference as a result of the iPhone's mobile capability. This is only a minor side effect and it doesn't happen too much during regular use.
We found the device's sound quality acceptable for a clock radio. Users can easily use a two-way equaliser for bass and treble adjustment, and a balance setting can also be altered. The equaliser is sufficient for standard use. The device can reach a decent volume with only slight hints of distortion. We didn't expect the iH8's bass levels to be outstanding, as the device simply isn't physically large enough to reproduce low frequencies. Nevertheless, the device's capable mid-range somewhat compensates this, and bass will probably only be a problem for those who prefer dance music.

Fifteen High-Profile 2010 CES iPod + iPhone Debuts Worth Seeing

1. Incipio duroSHOT DRX: As noted in our 2010 Best of Show Awards, Incipio continues to introduce new, interesting and innovative case designs. One that caught our attention was duroSHOT DRX, which uses a very interesting new method of producing a dual-toned, semi-hard plastic case by floating secondary pieces of plastic within a translucent larger piece; this is the next evolution of Speck’s CandyShell.
2. Shure SE425 & SE535: Shure announced two iterative updates to its highest-end consumer earphones. The SE425s ($350) are a more affordable, completely redesigned version of the dual-driver SE420s featuring detachable cables in a much nicer body style. The SE535s ($550) are a cosmetically redesigned more expensive version of the SE530, Shure representatives claimed only the most subtle (and inspecific) audio tweaks with detachable cables and a choice of clear or bronze housings. The SE535s are not smaller than the SE530s but are designed to be lower-profile and fit more completely inside your ear.
3. Griffin iFM: Griffin released a new, simplified version of its iFM radio accessory, providing a cleaner white and chrome design, a lower price tag ($40) and integration with an enhanced version of its iPhone app. Dispensed with: remote control buttons. A challenge: you still need to plug your earphones into the iFM accessory rather than the iPhone or iPod to use the radio.
4. iHome iH22: iHome unveiled a number of amazing products at CES this year, many of which received Best of Show awards. Another product worthy of mention is its iH22. On its face, iH22 may seem like just another clock radio with an iPod dock, but what distinguishes it from many other similar products is its nice clean design, which looks like higher-end Internet Radios we’ve seen from other companies, plus a variety of colors, and its $50 asking price. For iPod users looking for a nicely-designed clock that won’t break a budget, the iH22 is definitely worth considering.
5. Helium Digital HDBT-990 Wristband Communicator: Conjuring up images of Dick Tracy, Helium Digital presented an interesting new concept in Bluetooth audio accessories with a combination microphone and speakerphone that you can wear on your wrist. In addition to providing standard telephone call audio, the HDBT-990 ($85) also supports A2DP wireless music streaming, albeit presented only in mono. While the utility of this particular accessory may be debatable—do you really want to air your phone calls so publicly, talking in the direction of your wrist?—we definitely felt that it was an interesting idea.
6. Dexim Baby Monitor: Dexim announced a new $40 Baby Monitor accessory that will provide streaming video to an iPhone or iPod touch suitable for use in a baby’s room. The device will support native H.264 video streaming with 0.2 lux low-light recording, and include a battery for cable-free power.
7. Mophie Marketplace: While several companies have produced Dock Connector based credit card readers for the iPhone, Mophie promises to do so with more style in its Mophie Marketplace—a magnetic strip reader integrated into a Mophie case. A Mophie Marketplace app on the App Store will work with the case for processing payment information, and the case will include a micro USB port for charging and syncing without having to remove the iPhone from the case.
8. iFrogz Luxe Earbuds: The new iFrogz Luxe earphones have an interesting design tailored to match its Luxe line of soft touch-coated plastic cases. A standard earphone version is available, as well as a model with a single-button inline mic for iPhone and voice recording. Low prices—$20 for the standard earbuds and $30 for the earbuds with in-line mic—will make them easy add-ons for owners of the cases.
9. Kicker Audio: Kicker Audio’s recent lineup of more affordable speakers—iK350 ($200) and iK150 ($180) continue to produce the strong bass we heard in the iK500; iK350 has a huge optional rechargeable battery pad, mounted underneath, that enables you to use the unit on the go. A new iK501 model ($300) adds iPhone compatibility.
10. Alpine: Alpine demonstrated its new IDA-X305S, a Pandora-compatible update to its IDA-X305 automotive head unit. The IDA-X305S integrates with the Pandora app on the iPhone to offer dash-based control of the app, including thumbs up and thumbs down, as well as traditional iPod integration. It is also compatible with modules for HD Radio with iTunes Tagging and Bluetooth.
11. Bandshell: TJM Innovations demonstrated Bandshell, a new iPhone case that boosts the audio output of the iPhone’s built-in speaker by extending a slider from the rear of the case to reflect the speaker’s sound output. The case is inexpensive and available in a variety of colors.
12. Blue Microphone’s Second-Generation Mikey: Blue Microphones has debuted an improved version of its Mikey iPod microphone. The second-generation Mikey adds iPhone support, a 3.5mm line-in port and increases the gain of the previous version for higher volume and better distance recording. Mikey can be used with the iPhone’s built-in voice recorder or Blue Microphones’ own companion iPhone application. Challenge: it’s now even more expensive than the prior version, at $100.
13. iFrogz Ronin, Mogul & CS40: iFrogz introduced some new Ear Pollution series headphones. The Ronin and Mogul are bass-heavy DJ-style headphones, while the CS40 is a very comfortable soft cushion variation on its standard design. All are available in iFrogz usual extensive set of customizable patterns and designs.


14. IvySkin SmartCharger: Ivyskin introduced the SmartCharger ($50), a backup iPhone battery pack that is designed for the world traveller. The SmartCharger includes a built-in 1800 mAh battery for recharging or powering the iPhone or iPod while on the go, and also adds a standard USB port for charging other devices. The Lithium-Ion cells are rated for 1000 recharges, and the device includes four different plug adapters for various international power outlet types.
14. TuneWear Game Handle: TuneWear introduced its GameHandle ($20) for the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G. The GameHandle is designed to provide a better grip on the iPhone or iPod touch when playing action and racing games. It uses a rubber coating that makes the device comfortable in your hand, and an internal sound cavity that amplifies the sound from the device’s internal speakers and outputs it through vents on the back.
