    All my iOS devices are on 8.4. If I upgrade my primary Mac to El Capitan, will it still have the seamless syncing of Notes through iCloud that it has now? I'm worried the new Notes requires iOS 9. Does anyone know?

    I'd also like to know something similar.

    I have just upgraded my MacBook to El Capitan and it has invited me to upgrade my notes. I haven't yet done so. At present, I can see my notes on my other Mac on Snow Leopard (with Mail) and on my iPad on iOS 5.

    Will I still be able to see my notes on those two other devices if I upgrade notes in El Capitan?

    I don't mind if I can't see the new features such as check boxes etc.

    Once you upgrade your new notes or hanged will not sync between your devices. So if you plan to keep notes in sync I advice not updating your iCloud notes until/unless you also plan to fully migrate to 9.0 or El Capitan on all your devices.

    I'm not on El Cap yet—so is what we're saying that when you launch Notes for the first time on El Cap, it asks if you want to upgrade, and if I decline that it works like it currently does?

    Has anyone actually done that—running El Cap with iOS 8 devices?

    I didn't upgrade my notes and everything seems to be working as before. My notes are appearing on my iPad (running iOS 5), my other Mac (on Snow Leopard) and my stuff on iOS 9. I don't have anything with iOS 8.

    When you first open the app. If you choose not to you can upgrade your notes later by tapping the update button on the sidebar view.

    I'm on El Cap and 8.4. The first time you run notes on El Cap, it'll tell you new features about notes, and you need to upgrade to have all the new features synced. But if you don't, everything still works as before.

    I'm feeling nice, here's the screens you get when you click on "Upgrade".

    Oops, and here's the screen after you click "Learn more". Explains everything.
