Sometimes, your Mac doesn't sync with your iPhone due to the network, iCloud settings, outdated software, or more. Let's see the details about the reasons why your Mac isn't synced with your iPhone.

  • Network connection issues: There is a poor and unstable network connection. If your Mac and iPhone are connected to different networks, synchronization between them may be affected.
  • iCloud settings issues: Check your iCloud settings to make sure both your Mac and iPhone are logged in to the same Apple ID, and the features that need to be synchronized are enabled (such as notes, calendars, reminders, etc.).
  • Firewall: Certain firewalls or security software may block the communication between your Mac and iPhone.
  • Software updates: Ensure your Mac and iPhone are updated to the latest operating system versions. Apple releases updates frequently to fix sync issues and other bugs.
  • Hardware problem: It may be caused by a hardware problem.

Sometimes, simply restarting your Mac and iPhone can resolve sync issues. You also need to check the sync settings: Make sure sync settings are configured correctly on both your Mac and iPhone. For example, in your Mac's System Preferences, you can check the "iCloud" and "Internet Accounts" settings. Please update your iPhone and Mac to the latest version. If nothing works, you can try to fix your iOS system to see what causes the problem.
