Got it! This is all helpful, thanks, all. This is largely what I figured.
i will reverse the question … why are you wanting to do this? what is the expected result?
Yeah, fair question. It’s more a matter of convience–with my iPad syncing via Cloudkit, I didn’t want to change that, but I thought I’d see if I could make my iPhone go with Dropbox.
That’s not my preferred approach; I prefer simple, straightforward and elegant, and two different syncing mechanisms is not that. But since I’ve been working this for awhile, I thought I’d see.
Still on version 16 of iOS which I suspect is beta?
@rmschne, Yeah, I’m on 16, though I’ll note it is in the public beta stage. Certainly doesn’t mean there aren’t bugs, but they’re almost never showstoppers like this. What’s weird is my log, which I’ve attached a screenshot of–it’s like DT on my laptop knows there are changes, but can’t get to them.
So, right now, I’m on iOS 15 device, Cloudkit is working fine. On iOS 16, Bonjour sync works (I’ve only done a sync with a hard connection, btw), but I’m seeing the exact same behavior on both Cloudkit and Dropbox sync: after the initial Bonjour sync, the device tries to run a wireless sync and seems to get stuck at the upload stage. I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled twice, going through the same process each time.
I think the next step is to take everyone back to zero, basically–pull DTTG off my devices, turn off Cloudkit on my laptop and clear the Dropbox sync store, then run a Bonjour sync again with my devices and let Dropbox take over from there.
@cgrunenberg Given that my one iOS15 device works fine and my iOS16 device has seen consistent issues across two sync approaches (and I’ve deleted the app, reinstalled and reloaded twice), is it worth me putting all this together into a cohesive and complete ticket for the DT team? I’m sure you’re testing on iOS16; my team does iOS development, so I can at least put together a nice QA ticket.
As always, I appreciate the help! Everyone’s very helpful–at some point hopefully I’ll be able to contribute more to the forums here than just questions. Thanks much!
