iBooks and newsstand items don't sync between devices, but you can redownload iBooks on another device or have them automatically download when you purchase on another device.

Thanks, I thought they did, thru iTunes. Seems strange that they don', wouldnt have thought it was that difficult if they can already sync music, videos, photos etc!

Yes it seems quite a logical improvement to me, being able sync your daily newsreader or the book you're reading and where you are up to.

I have an iPad and iPhone and sync collections is on with both. However the books that I have on the iPad don't all show up on my iPhone. The same applies with newsstand. I bought a magazine with my iPad and it doesn't show up on the iPhone. I thought that all purchases should appear on all devices, and that I should be able to pick up reading on one where I left off on the other.
Sorry to butt in here, but unless I'm misunderstanding, then newspapers, magazines and books will appear on all your devices UNLESS they are designed for one platform only.
For example, T3 magazine will only go to your iPad as it was only designed for that platform, but something like MacUser or PC Gamer will appear on all devices. Generally, anything that is a simple pdf version of the printed version will appear on all devices.
Similarly, any purchases on iBooks should appear on all your devices.

Hmm, well the situation is that books I have bought from the iBook store don't appear on both devices. Some are paid for and some are free. I would have thought that all books in the apple store would be suitable for both iPhone and iPad...

Silly question, but are you using the same iTunes account on both devices? All books should certainly appear on both your devices. They do for me, as do all magazines that were designed for both.

Open 'Newstand' click on 'Store' then click on 'Updates' then 'Purchased' then scroll down and look for the magazines and newspapaers you have already downloaded, the click on the small cloud with the down arrow to the right of the item and this will then download it to your device.
It worked for me....
