If I make a note in Notes on my iMac it does sync to my iPhone. I am afraid of making any changes and lose my iPhone notes. I keep lots of stuff there I don't want to forget.
To top it off, now I'm having problems with intermittant touchscreen recognition problems where it doesn't respond or an app not even close to the one I press opens up. This iPhone 6 is a replacement for the original one I bought 1 year ago as the first one would suddenly shut completely off with tons of battery power left. Thank goodness for having bought AppleCare!
I feel your pain big time. I finally did get everything syncing by going through ICloud. But if you asked me to explain how I did it, I wouldn't be able to.
Good luck in getting your problems sorted out.
I finally did upgrade to El Capitan. Can't really say I notice a difference but it is hard to say. Internet speed seems slower since I upgraded and unfortunately, my ISP, Verizon, isn't any help.
Hi, 49er. If you are still concerned about your payment info being filed with Apple, you may be able to go to your account at the App Store and remove that information. I used the App Store for years for upgrades, etc without a payment method listed. I use a prepaid credit card with a small amount on it now so it is easier to purchase music, apps, etc.
As far as I know most apps you want to sync between Apple devices need to be set up for iCloud sharing in the settings for each device you want to sync with. Some apps like Evernote and Dropbox use their own cloud systems to sync their apps and they are setup in app's settings.
I upgraded our late 2007 iMac to el Capitan and it does a good job with general web browsing, email and light applications. It doesn't do so well with larger programs, transferring large files via the internet or tasks that require multiple windows or apps to be open at the same time. It is just too slow. It does very well for my wife's scrapbooking apps. We ended up buying a new iMac to run our photo editing apps and Windows virtual machines on.
Thanks pupcamper, I got over my hesitation. All jokes aside, I am not sure why this bothered me as I think this is standard procedure.
In spite of everything being set up correctly per Apple support, still have trouble with contacts and calendar syncing in going from computer to device. With the calendar, I came with a work around solution as I just need to type one character on the device and for the rest of the day, anything I type on the computer will synch over. Unfortunately, for contacts, there aren't any workarounds as I have to type everything on the device for it to sync over.
Anxiously waiting for an IOS update to solve this problem. Apple support didn't have any suggestions unfortunately.
