With the latest long term release 10.04 there seems to be native support for the Iphone and Ipod. Please see link below.
but how about the apps, can i sync apps thru amarok?
That seems to be the biggest issue, syncing is something of a work in progress for most of these apps. But never the less, it is progress that Ubuntu can recognize and at least "push" files to these devices. I'm sure syncing is only a matter of time...

As a result I've resorted to gtk-pod, although this is not without it's downside - I had a difficult time figuring out just how to sync my ipod. It's not exactly intuitive...
On the plus side it does allow you to set up smart playlists that the ipod recognizes, a feature Banshee did not have.
