    It's happening to me now, October '17.

    The last sync of my Notes happened on Tuesday; the next day I didn't find my note from the iPad the night before on my iMac, and now each of my four Apple devices are not syncing.

    If Apple fixed this problem last spring, it's now broken again with the new IOS/OS updates, at least for me. I haven't upgraded my two computers (iMac and MacBook) to High Sierra yet. I'll try that and see if it works. Meanwhile, I'm emailing Notes to myself.

    Same problem here. Notes on my 2017 devices (iMac and iPad Pro) sync to iCloud. All other devices (MBP 2012, iPhone 6s+) do not reflect any changes I make or newly created notes back into iCloud.

    Here are the notes that, when created on my older devices, do not sync to iCloud:

    • Notes with Checklists
    • Notes with Scanned Documents
    • Notes with Tables
    If I create these notes on an older device, they don't sync to iCloud. Super frustrating.

    This issue is still occurring!! I have lost the 4th Product Specialist. Now this new person wants me to do the logs and the troubleshooting AGAIN! Why? We keep repeating the same protocols with no progress. This case with apple support is almost 12 months old!

    Notes will not sync across all my devices - phone, ipad and MBA.

    Yup, thought this issue was fixed, but it's reared its head again in one of the last few iOS updates. Back to Google Keep for me. Haven't had one issue with it. It's a shame Apple can't get this problem solved.

    Hmmm, I don't have these syncing problems, but I don't have those type of notes either (I only have plain text notes and notes with a photo or drawing as attachment).

    Since iOS 11 and MacOS High Sierra however, I have occasionally notes that won't be synced. As far as I can see sync is OK between iOS devices so I think the problem is on the Mac side.

    There IS big problems with iCloud (etc) in iOS11
    I'm sitting with seniors on Apple with Calendars, Contacts, Reminders that don't sync at all with iCloud on my iPhone. All info almost gone too. Notes sync however o_O just saying, and I'm glad something do sync.
    On iPad some work, some don't. On iMac all work, until Messages stopped last week.

    iCloud is SOO GOOD when it works, so damn ****** when it don't.
