iPhone do not synchronize to iCloud

My iPhone calendar and reminders (iOS 9.3.2) stopped syncing with my iCloud calendar recently.  All computers and all other devices in the family fine synchronization are also.  Only my phone does not.

Settings of the calendar on my phone are always set to synch to iCloud, my iCloud password is set correctly, and (as expected) my iCloud calendar correctly reflects the content of all my other devices.

Is there a setting I'm missing or forget?

Hello there, Richard Setterberg!

Thank you for joining the communities Support from Apple! Looks like you have a problem with your calendar synchronization only on your iPhone. I know how it is important to be sure to synchronize calendars on all devices! The first thing you might want to try reset the network settings on the iPhone by going to settings > general > reset look and then reset network settings. This update cell phones and the data connection of a WiFi with the iPhone, so make sure you have no password WiFi or VPN, you need to join these networks as they will be removed to the phone. Given to personal data such as contacts, pictures, music, etc will remain on the device.

  • iPhone do not download to iCloud!

  • iPhone does not backup on iCloud despite the library on

    My iPhone is not backup, despite the option is on. He used to work very well with my iPhone 6 and Macboo pro. Now when I get the pictures on my laptop I don't see the new photos.

    Please check that your device is correctly connected to the wireless internet (settings > wifi) and is plugged into a power source, check also that you have enough space in iCloud for your back upward.

    You can check the space available in settings > iCloud > storage and the space needed for the next backup to the settings > iCloud > storage > Storage manage > backups > appliance > Back Up Options > next backup size (wait for the spinning until the gear icon).

    Assuming that you are eligible for iCloud upward, you should try a forced first stop, hold down the buttons side in top and home together until the unit stops, then restart by pressing the side/up button.

    Then, try to connect the device to a new location (different WiFi network)

    If your backup continues to fail, you can try to disable the backup on your mobile device (settings > iCloud > backup), reboot the device and then turn on BackUp on new.

    If this help not disable backup again, remove your existing back to the top of settings > iCloud > storage > Storage manage > backup > this device (scroll down) > delete backup, restart the device and then turn on BackUp.

    If you are unable to make a return to the top, try to connect on iCloud (settings > iCloud (scroll down) > Sign Out (you will need to enter your password at this point), restart the device and sign in iCloud to settings > iCloud.)

    The next thing to try would be to restore your network settings. (Settings > general > reset > reset network settings)

    Reset your network settings will erase your cell phones and wireless network settings, including saved networks, passwords for wifi and VPN settings, that you can use. It will affect to the Internet but will not be an impact on telephone services because these settings are automatically configured by your carrier. It may take a few moments to enter again all your network settings, but it shouldn't cause you any major problems. If you are comfortable re - enter your network settings, you can try this step earlier in the troubleshooting procedure, i.e. after the forced shutdown suggested above.

    If this does not help, try to disable some elements for the back upward in a model to try to establish if your problem is caused by specific data on your device. You can do with settings > iCloud > storage > storage management > backup > appliance > Back Up Options.

    If you are still not able to perform a backup from iCloud, you can try to restore your phone which you should do by making an iTunes backup via your computer and restore from that.

    Be able to go back to the cloud can be very useful, especially if you have access to a computer or rarely have access to one, however unless you need specifically to use iCloud to go back, you'll find a backup on iTunes much more convenient and possibly more reliable. However if you save up to iTunes be sure to encrypt the back upward if you want to keep your data on health and passwords etc.

  • Reminders in iOS 10 does not synchronize with iCloud

    I have a frustrating problem.

    If I create or change a reminder in OSX 10.12, or online on iCloud, it syncs to all my devices.  However, if I create or edit a reminder in iOS 10.0.1 it does not sync to iCloud at all.

    I tried all the remedies I can find online, for example, all devices use the same iCloud account and the same reminders folder.

    Any ideas? Thank you

    Greetings Advanced User,.

    I understand that when you try to synchronize your entire library of music from iPhone 6, only half of the library transferred in fact more. I listen to my music on a daily basis, so I can understand your concern. We'll see what we can do.

    First of all, please exit and restart iTunes and restart the iPhone. Then I want you to do, if you have not already, should make sure that you have "Sync music" and "Entire library of music" checked when you go to sync music on your iPhone in iTunes.

  • Contacts not syncing between iCloud/iOS and "on my Mac".


    I very recently discovered contacts that I create on iOS website or iCloud does not synchronize to the section "on my Mac" (i.e. a local copy) of the Contacts and contacts created in the group "on my Mac" inside the Contacts.app will not sync to iCloud and iOS.

    I drove most of the discussions in the forum and tried all the remarkable solutions, and none have worked for me:

    -Put iCloud and extinguish in iCloud Prefs

    -turn on/contacts turn off in prefs Internet accounts

    -Group iCloud toggle in the pref Contacts.app pane

    -different versions of the above Contacts.app is leaving or quitting smoking in specific order

    On a side note, I also recently started having crashes repetitive .app Contacts when you try to type in the search classified all contacts; whereas research on behalf of any group has worked well.

    I went up to destroy ~/Library/Application Support / address book (after saving an archive on my Mac) and starting with a new "on my Mac' database.» Solved the crash of research, it has not solved the problems of synchronization.

    Finally, I resorted to copy all contacts to iCloud and hanging out in "on my Mac", which is temporarily resolved the question of having a set of contacts stored locally, so I can work in offline mode. It does not, however, solve the problem to know what contacts that were created on my Mac are gone, because they do not synchronize to iCloud in the first place. I hope that I'll have to go through the ugly to reimport process archive backup and try to merge more than 1200 contacts to retrieve those on my Mac, but then iCloud still will not have these missing contacts without synchronization.

    So, is this expected today at El Capitan and iOS behavior 9? How can I find out when manually drag the new iOS/iCloud contacts on my Mac? And vice versa?

    Seems to me Syncing should be only that. synchronization not only icloud, iOS, but also and on my Mac, just the way that it used to work.

    Anyone have any new ideas?

    Your first paragraph is normal. On my Mac contacts will not sync to iCloud. If you want to synchronize, you must add to iCloud.

    I deactivated and reactivated "my photo stream" on all devices without result.

    No, it's not a bug. The Photos.app on www.icloud.com shows you your iCloud library. Since you don't have icloud library enabled on any device, your iCloud photo library will be empty.  My photo stream uses another part of iCloud than iCloud photo library.
