    Hey there,

    Having a strange issue. Here's a synopsis:
    • iPhone 5S can see Mac Safari tabs
    • iPad Mini (gen 2) can see Mac Safari tabs
    • iPhone and iPad Mini cannot see each other's Safari tabs
    • Mac can only see iPhone or iPad Safari tabs, not both simultaneously
    Solutions I've tried that have failed:
    • Restarting iPhone and iPad
    • Closing Safari on iPhone and iPad
    • Disabling and enabling Safari in iCloud settings on iPhone and iPad
    • Resetting network settings*
    * When I reset my network settings on my iPad Mini, my iPhone simultaneously forgot the Wi-Fi network password, which I thought was strange...

    FWIW, I initially restored this iPad Mini from an iPhone backup

    So, any ideas? Thanks y'all!

    Welp, this is driving me up a wall. Here's some interesting troubleshooting results so far:

    MBA sees iPad Mini Safari iCloud tabs (no iPhone tabs present at this time)
    Turn on Privacy on iPad Safari
    MBA no longer sees iPad Mini Safari tabs
    Results: Expected

    MBA sees iPhone Safari iCloud tabs (no iPad tabs present at this time)
    Turn on Privacy on iPhone Safari
    MBA no longer sees iPhone Safari tabs
    Results: Expected

    MBA sees iPad Mini Safari iCloud tabs (no iPhone tabs present at this time)
    Turn on Privacy on iPhone Safari
    MBA no longer sees iPad Safari tabs
    Results: What the heck!?

    MBA sees iPhone Safari iCloud tabs (no iPad tabs present at this time)
    Turn on Privacy on iPad Safari
    MBA no longer sees iPhone Safari tabs
    Results: What the heck again!?

    Again, I have restarted the iPhone, iPad, and MBA. I have disabled and re-enabled Safari in the iCloud settings on the iPhone, iPad, and MBA. I just have no idea what the heck the problem is here.

    EDIT: And of course during all these tests, the iPad and iPhone do not see each other's Safari iCloud tabs

    Came to keep you company as I noticed it being pretty lonely in here for you.

    Not to add to the conundrum but:

    My Mac can see my iPhone.
    My iPad can see my iPhone and my Mac.
    My iPhone can see my Mac.

    ???
