    I had just upgraded from Mountain Lion to Mavericks.

    Now, my iTunes will not sync any Contacts & Calendars entries from my iPhone 5 and iPad 2. :eek:

    This is weird as I do not seem to find any other option in iTunes, iCal and Address Book app to turn this feature on. :confused:

    Any help please??

    Thank You

    I saw this too. Turned cloud sync on and after it uploaded the calendar etc, then the iPhone calendar was synced, but where is the old "info" tab on itunes that tells ios what contacts, emails, etc to sync? In any case something isn't working right after that last itunes update.



    Info tab just seems to be gone now I guess:

    EDIT:
    Apple's technote http://support.apple.com/kb/PH12117 state that the only way to sync under Mavericks is with iCloud. The Windows version of iTunes could still be used to sync iDevices.

    yup: Note: These instructions apply only if you use OS X v.10.8.5 or earlier. If you use OS X Mavericks v.10.9 or later, your contacts, calendars, and other info are updated on your computers and iOS devices via iCloud. For more information, see iCloud Help at icloud.com.


    oh well . . . .

    I stumbled upon that thread that reconfirm the compulsory use of iCloud for Calendars and Contacts syncs for all iOS devices.. :eek:

    This is so stupid as I am always traveling in areas where internet connection is not easily available.. Where is the logic in here?? :confused:
