Tech For Troglodytes: Syncing Notes to iCloud

“Son of Man,” painting by Rene Magritte

Hi Apple Heads. A bunch of visitors dropped by this week to a 2013 Scribbler’s Report, which  offers tips on how to sync iPhone notes to iCloud. Here’s an update:

A new iPhone operating system was just released, and after installing it, many of us discovered that (once again) iPhone notes won’t sync to iCloud.

Don’t waste time trying to fix it. The new iOS will only sync with OS X El Capitan, which won’t be released until Wednesday, Sept. 30.

No, this is not a paid sponsorship. You’re welcome, Apple.

If you’re like me, you probably don’t need notes in the cloud, so let’s all wait a couple weeks for kinks to be worked out before upgrading. Big releases always have a few bugs.

Note: upgrade releases are a good reminder to make a backup copy of files, which we should be doing periodically anyway. I use Time Machine and this “Porsche Design” Lacie external hard drive.

Fast, lightweight, not too expensive, easy to use and nice to have if hard drive goes kabluie. No, this is not a paid sponsorship. You’re welcome, Lacie Company.

Happy syncing, just not today. Cheers —
