    I noticed lately that my iCloud tabs are not picking up pages from my iPhone and my other OS X partition (El Cap) - is anyone else having same issue or is it just my setup?

    Issue is occurring on Safari 9.1.3 (9537.86.7.8), my iPhone is running latest iOS10 version (not beta) and El Cap has all updates installed. I do see webpages from iOS 6 iPhone 4s but not from those newer OS's...

    I do see mavericks ' safari tabs on my iOS 10 device, but my macbook air with mavericks DOES NOT see tabs from iOS 9 or iOS 10 devices. I tried to turn it off then back on several times still macbook air won't see anything on other devices.

    Thx Orka! My bad...was so furious after 30+ call with Apple support that I wrote it the other way round - what you're confirming is exactly the behaviour I'm seeing - iOS10 and El Cap see all Safari tabs across all my devices, but Mavericks/iOS6 see only each other and none of the higher macOS/iOS-es

    Apple support asked why I still use Mavericks and were rather sympathetic to my situation/setup, but in the end said that it's a software compatibility and recommended upgrading:/

    My MacBook Air is 2012 model with 4gb ram and on Mavericks I get about 1 hour more battery life than on el capotin, which i used for almost a year, I also tried Mac Sierra for few hours and it lasts even worse than el cap, so Mavericks is best for me. It's unfortunate Apple is crippling its own os.
