    So my text replacement list disappeared on my iPhone 6S after upgrading to the last iOS, but I replaced the list, and it seems to be working. However, the list has been missing/unsynced from my MBA for quite some time. Perhaps since I upgraded to Sierra (when it first came out).

    Any idea on a fix? I can manually enter them on my MBA, but I've heard of some people's disappearing again.

    I didn't mess around with turning off iCloud and have it working between macOS and all iOS devices

    There is clearly an issue, but the key is to enter them on your Mac ... it will sync correctly to all your other iCloud devices

    If you enter them on an iPad, it will only sync to other iPads

    If you enter them on an iPhone, it will not sync to any other devices

    Unfortunately, the Mac doesn't receive any changes from either iPads or iPhones, it only sends that's why you have to enter them all on the Mac

    This is clearly far from ideal but only way it worked for me
