Switching between multiple devices?

I have both an iPhone and K3 and will sometimes have both connected to my PC via USB. Calibre seems to pick one to automatically connect to, and the only way that I've found to switch to the other is to eject the first, then restart Calibre so that it detects and connects to the other. Is there a less cumbersome way to do this?

You can go to Preferences - Advanced - Plugins - Device interface plugins and disable the Apple plugin. Then only use the Connect to iTunes feature to populate iTunes with epubs and use iTunes to interface with your iPhone.

Doing it this way the two never interfere with each other.
