    I tried out iOS5 and I love it, everything works great except for keeping contacts and safari bookmarks in sync with my iPad, iPhone and mac.

    I would like all my contacts to stay in sync on all devices (iPad and iPhone) and my mac address book. The problem is that they only sync on my devices, not my mac.

    If I add a new contact on my iPhone, it syncs with iCloud and shows up on my iPad, but not on my Mac. If I add a new contact in my address book on my mac and then sync, it shows up on my devices. I just can't get it to happen the other way around even if I sync. Apple's site says you can add contacts on your phone and they instantly get sent to your Mac and your iPad. Mine only go to my iPad, and yes every device and computer is hooked up to wifi.

    I've tried selecting "Sync Address Book" in iTunes as well but new information will not show up in my Address Book.

    For bookmarks, when I add a new bookmark in Safari on my mac, it use to show up on my devices once I synced. That won't happen now, new bookmarks won't show up. And if I make a new safari bookmark on my phone or iPad, it only shows up on the other device, it won't show up on my Mac even after I sync.

    So basically, my devices are only syncing up with one another and not including my mac as they should.

    Has anyone else had this experience? Any ideas on what to do? I thought this was suppose to "just work"?

    You can find the 10.7.2 GM if you google. Otherwise, it'll be out next Wednesday.

    Example:

    If you are going from OS X 10.7.0 to 10.7.1, then you will get the Delta update, but if you skipped .1 and are going straight to .2 (.3, .4 etc) from 10.7.0, then you need the combo update (its a bundle of all of the updates into one).

    Thank you my good man! I'm on 10.7.1 so I can get the delta. So glad this will fix my syncing woes, what a pain. I was laughing at apple since they said "it just works", but it wasn't just working. Turns out, I'm the reason why :)

    Thanks!

    Delta.

    Combo is only if you've missed more than one update.
