    You can no longer sync the bookmarks via iTunes. Apple have in their infinite wisdom removed this option, something I’m sure people living in areas without internet will rejoice about. Thanks Apple. Brilliant!

    • Yes, if users are using OS X Mavericks v.10.9 or later, they can only sync contacts and calendars with iTunes. Other info will be updated via iCloud. Thanks for you comment. I will update this post.
