iCloud sync not working to iPad

Steps to reproduce

typing into existing or new notes on the iPad version of Obsidian

Expected result

Notes synced between all three devices - Mac Desktop, iPhone, iPad

Actual result

Changes that are made on the Desktop or iPhone are synced via the vault on iCloud, but they are not synced to the iPad version. Changes to notes on the iPad override any previous changes made to the note.

Not sure if you followed this guide or not

I was using the advice given in the link provided. This definitely is an issue with iCloud and I’m surprised others haven’t reported similar issues. After googling around for a bit, the fix that worked is to simply log out of iCloud on the device that’s giving you problems, and then log back in again. So far, it seems to have resolved the problems I was having!

Sorry for any inconvenience caused!
