    I don't remember seeing it in the keynote and I'm not going to go back and watch it all again :)

    Do custom ringtones and vibrations sync across iOS devices now? My iPhone has tones bought and set for contacts but they don't show/sync to my iPad. Its a right pain to manually set them on the iPad to match my iPhone. Cant believe apple put up with this in the mothership :)

    Are you using iCloud for your contacts? Mine all sync ringtones and vibrations as far as I know, but I'm using iCloud

    yea using iCloud. None of my ring tones are syncing. On my iPhone r2d2 beeps for one contact, on the iPad it dings because its not assigned :( I'd have to go in and redo every contact to be the same as my iPhone and I'd also need to download the tones from iTunes on my computer to my iPad. If I didn't have a macbook it'd be even harder to fix.

    Ive just checked my iPad settings. I forgot a while back I set iPad up to be used by anyone so had some restrictions on. iTunes store was missing. I put it back and hard rebooted but nothings syncing. Maybe it was that but it may take time to auto fix.

    I'll update this if I find out why and how to fix this just for anyone searching in future.
