    Ok so I have notes on my iPhone 5. I sync to iCloud. Trying to get notes on my new iPad mini which also syncs to iCloud but to no avail. Ideas?

    I use Evernote across Apple/Android & iMac. Works brilliantly. If not I guess if you don't have too many notes then save em to Dropbox or email them to yourself to be available on both devices.

    Make sure Notes is toggled on in iCloud. Then toggle iCloud off and back on on both devices. It should work if you have a data connection.

    How do I toggle on on iCloud? Notes icon is there but no place I've found for settings. I have notes toggled on in iPhone and iPad. Notes I'm trying to duplicate are in iPhone.

    On the iPad, go to Settings > iCloud > Delete Account. Then add it back in.

    Still didn't transfer. This is getting aggravating.

    Here is what I would do and in this order.

    -- Make a backup to PC or email the notes to yourself as an attachment
    -- Turn off and delete iCloud from both devices
    -- Turn on iCloud on the iPhone and make sure Notes is also turned on
    -- Turn on iCloud on the iPad and make sure Notes is also turned on

    If that does not work then I am clueless and maybe a call to Apple would be in order.. You may have data stuck or corrupted on their end that's causing the issue and they may be able to thoroughly delete the iCloud data..

    Is it syncing other iCloud data such as contacts and bookmarks?
