iCloud contacts do not sync on all devices

can someone help me understand why iCloud contacts are not sync on all devices?  I confirmed that keep the changes via my macbook on the iCloud touch shows almost immediately changes on some devices, but not all.

A comment interesting, devices do not receive the change are the same Member of the family.  so I can't assume it's a matter of iCloud.  I ran a backup restore on one of the devices affected with no resolution.

I fear I am missing something so basic, but at this point, I am really puzzled.

Thanks for all the ideas.


So all the machines in question are signed on the same iCloud account, and they have all Contacts enabled in settings > iCloud?

If so, what is the level of iOS and the model of the device that is not synchronized? What is model level and iOS, other devices?

See you soon,.

  • iCloud Contacts do not sync with the iPad

    I put the new coordinates in my Contacts on my MacBook.

    It syncs with my iCloud account.

    But it is not sync with my iPad.

    On my iPad app, "all the iCloud" is checked.

    On my iPad, in the Mail, Contacts, calendars section, the scanning of Contacts button is on.

    On my iPad in my iCloud parameters, the scanning of Contacts button is on.

    I guess there is something simple I'm missing but I checked everything I can imagine.

    Anyone with ideas?
    Thank you very much.

    If you are sure that everything is configured correctly and your contacts are in the iCloud group, you might try to uncheck syncing contact in iCloud settings, reboot your device and then by reactivating contact synchronization.

  • IMessage does not sync between all devices

    My ipad/Mac will not sync with my iphone imessage. Until I reinstalled my Mac wasn't a problem. If I type a message to someone in imessage from my Mac or my iPad, it does not display in my iphone vice versa.

    imessages from my iphone will not only do not appear in the other two devices, but the response I get will not pass to the device, sure I typed the message. Even the opposite effect. Messages and responses to Mac/iPad won't go on my iPhone imessage.

  • iCloud contacts will not sync on macOS Sierra

    The contact.app on my mac does not download the new contacts I added to iClound via iPhone. I'm sure that the contacts are added successfully I checked on iCloud.com.

    I also check and unchecked "enable this account" (account iClould) in Contacts.app preference, but it does not work. The Fetch is set to "Automatic" or "Every minute", but none solved the problem.

    If you have already enabled Contacts switch under settings > iCloud, another option would be to sign out of your account iCloud on the device and reconnect.

  • iCloud contacts do not match the iPhone contacts.

    My iCloud contacts are not all my contacts from the iPhone.  I use the latest version of Firefox on Windows 10 PC.  Same situation on my Mac with El Capitan and the latest Safari and Firefox browsers.  Refreshing Contacts in iCloud changes nothing.

    Try to go to iCloud.com to see if the elements are there and whether the device or the computer. That should indicate if the device or computer is not synchronizing. If the computer, try going to System Preferences/iCloud and stop synchronization. Wait a few minutes, then recheck the timing. If the device, go to settings/iCloud and do the foregoing. You can also try connecting to iCloud and then reconnect.

  • Contacts will not sync via iCloud - once again!

    I get are leaning on the previous, mostly by now quite old, posts on this topic, but have not found answers that helped me.

    I have an iPhone 5s and a Mac mini with Mountain Lion (10.8.5). I have Contacts selected in iCloud on both devices, but the Contacts now does not synchronize anyway.

    I looked in iCloud.com. My contacts are there, but they are as they appear on my iPhone and they were on my Mac, a few days ago, not as they appear now on my Mac after some additions and changes.

    What can I do?

    On the iPhone, tap settings > iCloud > Contacts.

    Disable the Contacts then turn it back on.

    On Mac, open System Preferences > iCloud. Clear the Contacts check box, and then reselect it.

    Give a few minutes of re iCloud synchronize data.

  • Contacts do not sync with facebook

    I tried 'update all Contacts' and the search bar doesn't move no and says '0 Contacts updated' immediately.  I know that there are contacts that I just added are connected to facebook and on my other devices.  Twitter seemed to update correctly.  It's an Iphone versus 6 with latest updates.  Did a reset of all settings too.

    Greetings Mongo Lloyd's,

    I see that you are trying to update your contacts with your Facebook contacts, to see their photos appear, and contacts are related to your phone contacts. It is a very interesting possibility. I have a resource that will help with this:

    Connect to social networks like Facebook and Twitter on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch - Apple Support

    Specifically, there is an article that refers to the update your contacts with photos and names of users of social media:

    Update your contacts with photos and names of users of social media

    If the following is true, you can update your contacts with user names and profile pictures from Facebook, Sina Weibo and Twitter:

    -You have saved for your contacts email addresses in the app.* Contacts *.
    -Your contacts share their email addresses on their social media better *.

    Follow these steps to update your contacts:

    1. tap on settings.
    2. scroll down and tap the social network you want to use.
    3. tap Contacts updated.

    * The Contacts application matches the email address of your contact with the corresponding address on social media. If you have not registered an email address in the Contacts application, or if they do not share an e-mail address on their profile of social media, this contact will be not updated on your device.

    See you soon!

  • Contacts do not sync with iPhone


    I have recently updated to Snow Leopard to El Capitan (five operating systems in a jump!  Yikes!).  Little by little, I'm working on the kinks...  And here's one:

    When I change an element in a field on a contact in the Contacts, the change appears (if any) on the web at https://www.icloud.com/#contacts, but it does not appear on my iPhone (5 c; iOS 9.2.1) even a week later.

    On my iPhone:

    Settings-> iCloud-> Contacts-> in the

    Settings-> Contacts-> [I don't see anything that could relate to this problem.]

    On my MacBook Pro (mid-2009; 10.11.3 MacOS):

    Sync with iTunes works but does not solve this problem.

    iTunes-> my iPhone-> settings (left panel)-> info-> Contacts Sync says:

    Your contacts are being synchronized with your iPhone on the airwaves to iCloud.

    On-line synchronization settings can be changed on your iPhone.

    I would like your suggestions for this research problem.


    It's working now.  I fiddled with the settings using http://www.apple.com/icloud/setup/mac.html as a guide.  The thing that did it, I was, on my iPhone, I got to settings-> Mail, Contacts, calendars-> GMail-> Contacts-> IT.  I turned it off.  I think that's what I did.   In a few minutes, I had duplicate for each contact entries on my iPhone.  For contacts that I had changed on my MacBook Pro, an entry was old, a new.

    Back on my Mac, I selectedContacts-> map-> Look for duplicates... It found 930 duplicates.  I chose to merge, then manually modified entries recently modified to remove outdated information.  In a few minutes, the Contacts on my iPhone fell in line.  Now, everything's fine.


  • Google contacts do not sync

    Does anyone else have this problem? The phone imported my contacts of my fine network sites, but it does not sync with GMail.

    I put all my contacts on the account that I've linked with FUZZY just to be safe and even imported out of my SIM ok, but even if a force a synchronization (settings > google sync) it will not draw from my account. I know it's been a while since I did that, so I missed a step?

    Thank you

    no problem, technically it is the missing step, the phone should has worked well at first. But whenever something seems off a power cycle seems to remedy.

    for info. Can you give me the brand as replied on this post
