    Default [Guide] How To Force An iCloud Sync.

    Unfortunately for Calendars and Reminders, iCloud does not always behave. Those syncs between devices don't always work. So here's how to force iCloud to behave.
    Step One: Open your iOS Calendar app (even if you use another calendar app)
    Step Two: Tap on Calendars.

    Step three: Quickly and firmly pull down on this screen to force a sync.

    If the spinning wheel shows and disappears quickly, pull down again to sync. You may need to do this several times until it syncs. Check your other devices for the sync. Repeat if necessary.

    So when you force sync iCloud in Calendar, does it also force sync Reminders or do we have to force sync from within each app?

    Never mind, I see it forces Reminders as well, and I guess it also forces Notes.
    Good Luck

    I did not have luck with that. I was having a problems where my Notes were not syncing through iCloud (OS X 10.10). I went to iCloud.com and logged in and then in the next few minutes or so, my many Notes started syncing! The problem may have been that I did not have the "Keep me signed in" button checked. How frustrating, I've been searching for a answer for this for months.
