    After upgrade to 9.2 a new iPad Air 2 that went with 9.1 the search in notes don't work (I use iCloud for my notes to sync three different device).

    Someone has the same problem?

    I seem to have a similar or the same problem:


    1. Create a note in iOS 9.2 e.g. containing the word "flabbergast".

    Try a search for this word in the notes app. Note will be found.

    2. Edit this note on another device. (In my case an iPad mini running iOS 7.x.)
    E.g. Change the word to "flabbergast123".

    3. Go back to the first device running iOS 9.2. Wait a minute for the note to update to the edited version from the other device.
    Do a search for a word "flabber..." in the notes app.

    The note can't be found. No search results.

    What an unpleasant bug to say the least.

    Seriously Apple?

    I'm running the "old" notes app (without the drawing features) on both devices.

    This is a little mystery but (almost for me) with a happy end: the day after the search in Notes worked. Maybe the IOS need some time to do something (but this is not very normal). Anyway now it works.
