Found iPhone on here and services says 62078 iPhone sync. What does that mean

For open ports, I would share some insight as The use of ports allow computers/devices to run multiple services/applications. A port number uses 16 bits and so can, therefore, have a value from 0 to 65535 decimal. If you have an open port, then it doesn't mean it is dangerous, it means these are the ports through which anybody can try to connect to your network. You may wish to close these ports if you don't use it. Different port and their numbers are used for different purposes like port 3000,3030 are used by software developers, port 80 is used by web access. Think of it as open windows in your locked house. These two open ports are acting as windows while the router is your main door.
When an application is using some service, it makes use of some ports and then after using it, that port becomes free. Once the port is not in use, the Fing App will let you know that the port is open and none of the applications is using it, thus telling you to close it.
62078 Port is used by UPnP for multimedia files sharing, also used for synchronizing iTunes files between devices and apparently used by iPhone while syncing - http://code.google.com/p/iphone-elite/source/browse/wiki/Port_62078.wikiRobin (Admin at Fing)

sMact… I have been wondering the same thing. We need to get more assistance from a Fing support person. Why is Fing showing only one apple iphone device, my boyfriends, as has having 62078 open and not mine? Especially since I went in and disabled Upnp on my router, rebooted, and all the other steps.1
I am having the same issue with a device that is mimicking my device name. It also ends with .lan ...ex name.lan. Shows iPhone syncing under open ports.
Is this an iPhone spoofing my device name and syncing to my device? Happens alot with 3 or 4 ofy devices. But the iPhone syncing is new.
I don't have an iPhone. Just an iPad that is accounted for.0
Its used by a couple of applications, that being one of them..62078tcp,udpupnpUPnP (Universal Plug and Play), iTunes
