Is Iphone and Ipad need to sync?

Because my ibookG4 is not support to Sync for new iphone and ipad. It is too old to upgrade new version of itune. I plan to buy iphone5 or ipad mini. But I found that it cannot sync to my ibookG4. So I wonder Can I just use iphone or ipad without sync to computer?

  • You don't need to sync it, however it is recommended that you do if you get a new iPhone or you need to restore.
    You can also use iCloud as an alternative.
