Photos on macOS Sierra: Album of peoples does not synchronize with iCloud photo library

Using Photos has just been updated for Sierra, and we finally have it in writing:

Note: Persons identified in the album people are not synchronized between devices.

And as far as I know, it really does not synchronize between my libraries of Photos on the MacBook Pro and my iMac.

It's different in the 10 user guide iOS for the iPhone and iPad:

People are synchronized between devices where you are connected with the same Apple ID.

I wonder how this is supposed to work, if a Mac and iPhone are synchronized with iCloud User Library.

None of the faces that I named on my iPhone did sync it with my Mac.

Another indication that the lack of synchronization of the people and names is deliberate:

This document has now also been updated:

Use iCloud photo library on several Mac - Apple Support computers and Photos

After have connected you, these items appear in the Photos app on all your Mac computers:

  • All photos and original videos
  • All folders and albums
  • Smart albums
  • Keywords
  • Memories
  • Key photo selections

He used to say, tags searchable faces will perform synchronization between devices, but the tags are more is mentioned. Now we have the 'memories' instead.

  • 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.

    Bright ideas please?

  • iTunes does not synchronize with Gen 1 Apple TV now.

    Writing in the hope that someone may have a work around:

    Now, my iTunes does not sync with my Gen 1 Apple TV.  A few months ago, it worked fine.  Now he doesn't.  Apple technical support was beautiful, but not useful.  Disconnect me and restart everything, but their statement is, "We do not support the Gen 1 Apple TV."

    I don't support an old product.  I don't understand NOT Apple changing iTunes if he smashes a product we purchased, as clients.  For me, it's obscene.

    Specifically, when I run iTunes, it appears, briefly, at the top in the Center, where the Apple logo is, the sentence, "(my name) connecting Apple TV."  Then the sentence disappears, but on the left, where he lists the devices, the Apple TV no longer appears.  It lists only my iPhone.

    When I go to iTunes-> Preferences-> Apple TV, it displays in the window, my Apple TV, by name and shows that it is "synchronization."

    Thus, Apple made it impossible change images or playlists, add songs or make other changes on Apple TV.  I can burn CDs on my MacBook Pro and make changes in iTunes, but the changes do not appear on the Apple TV.

    Someone at - it a solution?

  • BlackBerry Smartphones delete prerequisite does not synchronize with the mailbox store

    Subscribe to a "Digest" newsletter and mail is delivered to my BB about once an hour or two.  Sometimes, I want to read the messages, other times that I don't have.

    When I don't want to read the messages, I just highlight the address of the sender to view only those messages, then I hit 'Delete forward' in the BB Menu.  This erases all messages from my BB, but it does not sync with my mailbox.

    Is there a difference that I'm aware of to hit delete prior vs just select each message and pressing DEL?

    Verizon Storm2 (9550).  Items removed from synchronization is enabled in settings BIS.

    While he discusses BES, it doesn't indicate that the behavior that you see is the one specified. The thing to do would be to wait at least 24 hours since all but new delivery e-mail is at a lower priority.

    Good luck!

    for some reason any progress only very little happened when I plugged my phone directly on my laptop and not when its plugged into the wall.

    Is your charger, the original Apple for iPhone charger? You keep the open when you plug the iPhone to power?

    My iPhone 5 s needed three full days to scan photos of the faces of the people and shows no progress for a long time, but eventually finished.

    The results are not very satisfactory, however. Detected PeopleTop albums that show a single photo per person. It detects very well people certainly, but does recognize yet again, I have different photos.
