    Hi, does anyone using Google for contacts find it is problematic after the update to ios9? Particularly, contacts added on my iPhone do not seem to be carrying over to my iPad, which is set up exactly the same. Checked my settings on both devices and all looked good. In previous versions of the os you could manually go into contacts/groups and pull down to manually sync, which you now cannot do. Any other way to force a sync now?

    I've not experienced any issues syncing contacts via Google. If you want to manually sync, at the top of the address list in iOS, tap the refresh icon.

    Thanks but I don't see that icon.

    I don't see that. In the same spot on mine it says 'groups'. Are you running the latest version of the software?

    Yes I am. Tap on Groups, you may have options in there.

    When I made the switch to iOS I loaded my contacts into my phone and then synced them with iCloud, effectively moving them over. I was having syncing issues with Google and haven't had any since. Of course, if you plan on switching over to another platform at some point it may not be wise to do that. Just a thought!
