depends on what info you want to sync...
contacts, calenders, email can be synced via the individual email account.
i.e. icloud can sync across both devices by simply signing in on each device and choosing which to turn on. yahoo, gmail, hotmail, etc can all be synced by activating in general->settings, mail, contacts, calenders.
to sync apps, tv, music purchased from itunes (and redownloadable from itunes) simply go into general->store->"automatic downloads" and turn each option at the top to "on"
music purchased by itunes is available as "previous downloads" in itunes on your device. A one-time setup of itunes match (a paid yearly feature that setup begins on a computer) enables all of your music to be availible on your device any time you want, but there is a setup involved. What other features would you like to sync if not listed here?

Thanks for your help. I really appreciate it.
Does this mean I can no longer sync using a cord connection?
(I am not comfortable putting all my contacts and calendar on the cloud).

It has never been possible to directly sync two iOS devices using a cable. You have always had to connect to a computer to get the data from one device and then sync it to the other.

Thanks. I know that. However it seems I can no longer use a cord to sync my contacts and calendar between my computer and my iPhone or iPad. I used to be able to do this. Am I missing something?

I'd suggest you start a new thread on your issue. This thread is several months old and a different issue, so you will be unlikely to get useful responses here. When you post, make sure you detail your setup and your problem; you include nothing here that would allow anyone to make a diagnosis.
