If you haven’t already signed in with your Apple ID and password it will ask you for the ID and Password, mine didn’t ask because I have already signed in on my iPhone.
Next screen is the user profile and the more than a dozen services such as mail, Safari, contacts, Photos and etc. And there is also a slider right next to the service names. Toggle the slider right if you wish to choose the services that you want to be synced across the various devices.
