Q: "Recently, I've been unable to get notes to sync across any of my devices, including between iPhone and iPad after updating to iOS 11. I have enabled notes in the iCloud settings screen on all devices, but the contents of Notes aren’t up to date. I can't find any way to fix or troubleshoot this. I have important notes on all my devices, so I need to merge all of them, rather than pick one to sync across the rest."
