    I have a problem with Safari history sync after I installed (clean install) iOS 9. The history does not sync between my devices. That includes my iPhone 6 running iOS 9 and my MacBook Pro and iPad which are running Yosemite (10.10.4 public beta) and iOS 8.3 respectively. There are no problems with handover, open tabs and reading list.

    For fix I have tried logging out and back in from iCloud on devices.

    I am just curious if anybody else experiences this as well.

    Does the sync work fine for the rest of you? It would be good to know if anybody else is experiencing this.

    Did you ever resolve this? I have had exactly the same problem for months, across multiple reinstalls of OS X and iOS...

    I've had this problem for months (on the latest released OS X and iOS versions, not new betas). I have actually had a support ticket with Apple going since early June, but no resolution yet.

    All Safari features sync properly (bookmarks, keychain, reading lists) except history. Further, other iCloud services sync properly (contacts, calendar, photos, etc.). History is the 1 and only issue and it affects all of my 3 devices (rMBP, iMac, and iPhone).

    To this point, I have tried everything that has been suggested (signed out, updated OSes, reinstalled iOS from scratch, etc.) with no success. The only thing I have not tried, and will not bother trying as it is not worth the trouble, is creating a new iCloud account.

    Same here. Doesn't seem to affect enough people to get any traction, though...

    What did you do to (partially) correct?

    I am not quite sure what I did. Must have been the clean install when beta 2 came out. But as I mentioned earlier my iPad mini is still not syncing.

    Is it supposed to sync? History has never synced between my devices and I think that's a good thing.

    Open tabs do sync and handoff works though and that's enough for me.

    My strong suspicion is that this issue is iCloud account based and not hardware based.
