Anyone else seeing strange entries under iCloud drive? Never seen messages show up here (the setting is usually directly in the messages app for Messages in the Cloud). Also seeing "imagent" and "sociallayerd" and icloud drive itself under options. Clean install fixes this.

I got the same too, and today Reeder app stock syncing (via iCloud) and now my iCloud Drive is stuck uploading, and none of my devices (1 iPhone, 2 iPad and MacBook Pro) would sync to or from iCloud anymore. This is strange.
iCloud status online services are all green, and my wife iPhone/Mac sync fine tho.

I'm in a similar situation: my documents and desktop are stuck in "waiting to upload" status. I am unable to move emails from one mailbox to an iCloud mailbox; I receive the error message "server busy." I've been on the phone with support and nothing is works long-term. All this happened after "upgrading" to Monterey 12.2.

Has anything resolved your issues?

THANKS!

I have both Imagent.app and sociallayerd.app showing TWICE in my list of iCloud apps on iMac. Has anyone came across the cause and solution to this??

Thanks,

Apple bridged me to the development team and they called me last week in person for a detail explanation to me for reducing my concerns mentioned above. They clarified and admitted that these apps were developed by Apply already.
So guys, in this case, I'd say this ticket already tagged as a worry-free issue to me for now.

Did they give you any more details? It doesn't show up on every computer.

I know this might get out of hand, but for those who have those two documents, what apps do you use and have installed in your device?
Fresh out of the box with no third party software. Only see this when setting up a mac out of the box. Clean install seems to fix.

Is this resolved via the new settings app on Ventura?

Okay, but what is sociallayerd? What does it do? Why is it needed?
