Hello, I recently updated my iPad Pro 9.7" to the public beta of iOS 11. It's wonderful! I kept my iPhone 6s+ at the current OS release. I'm using the new version of notes on my iPad, but I'm running into a problem. All the notes & updates I make on my phone appear on my iPad as they should. But, basically everything I create on my iPad doesn't show up on my phone. I think it may have synced a few times, but for the most part it doesn't. I'm still trying to experiment to find out what things may sync both ways. I think it has synced before, but I can't seem to get it to sync at alll anymore.

Anyone else experiencing this? Any thoughts on a solution? Thanks!

Just FYI: Other apps are syncing just fine

I think with the changes to notes in IOS 11 it is not being backwards compatable with lower versions of IOS currently. I did try deactivating both in iCloud and reactivating to pull down the latest info. It worked for me, but not something I would want to do all the time. I am also seeing a similar issue with iCloud tabs in Safari. The iOS 11/High Sierra device will not show their open tabs on a lower version device. But the iOS 11 device sees all my other devices tabs.

Thanks for your input. Today I opened up Notes on my iPhone & lo and behold one of my notes I made yesterday on my iPad showed up in my phone. But it appears any changes I make today don't sync over from the iPad to the phone. So, maybe after 12-24 it finally syncd one note or so. It's not reliable enough to use it. Unfortunately...I was hoping on using it regularly that way.

Is your iPad Pro a cellular + Wi-Fi model or a Wi-Fi Only model? If it’s a cellular + Wi-Fi model, make sure that the toggle next to cellular is enabled next to ‘Notes’ in the Cellular settings. Do the same on your iPhone.
