Additional information

does obsidian have permission to use icloud for storage?

You may need to enable that.

I don’t have Obsidian permission

try to restart your phone

Rebooting didn’t help. Reinstalling too.

You can try to log in and log out iCloud.

Another thing is, you may have a company provided device that limits icloud
