Latest report, ICLOUD HAS NOT WORKED AS EXPECTED,
PETER I THINK ICLOUD NEEDS A GOOD LOOK AT ITSELF, IT IS NOT FUNCTIONING DUE TO LACK OF LOGICAL OPERATION,
Nothing seems to work as needed or expected,
I have tried everything in all different ways and nothing comes close to a workable solution.
I believe the problem is your logical thinking of how iCloud should operate.
My view is you either want it ON or OFF
That’s the iCloud switch in settings, if it’s OFF THEN YOU ARE RUNING SOLO DEVICE , if it’s ON THEN YOU ARE SYNCING TO THE ICLOUD,
It’s as simple as that.
Now iCloud becomes the MAIN SUPPLIER OF UPDATES WHEN YOU TURN ON ICLOUD ON ANY DEVICE , if you turn on iCloud on any device it means you existing data gets lost and a complete replication of the iCloud becomes your new operating surface,
ICloud can only be fully updated if you do a full restore with iCloud enabled at the time, so all previous data gets replaced with new updated full restore data,
If you do a full restore with iCloud OFF than this device gets fully restored to new update , if then you turn on iCloud on this device the data of iCloud and the device gets merged,
So to fully update iCloud and its data you need to have a device with iCloud ON AND DO A FULL RESTORE this means you want to completely update all devices using iCloud.
At this moment there is no order or logic to what is happening with iCloud , it seems to have no logic of operation, you don’t get correct results when using iCloud , it needs to have definite rules it obeys that actually work for the end user.
I want to use iCloud to sync up my devices so when I make a change on one all the other devices follow, at the moment I can’t get two devices to be exactly the same, not to mention stay in sync if I change a name of a loop section.
I need to see iCloud working in its basic form before I test the nitty gritty stuff.
How do I get an iMac and an iPhone to be exactly the same using iCloud?
After doing a complete full backup install on iMac it has created a dogs breakfast on my iPhone .
The problem is your logic is wrong of how iCloud should work.
I should be able to fully delete iCloud, then install a full backup to it then allow all other devices to sync to this full backup , at this moment this does not work.
Once that works we can then test other issues.
