Question: iPhone Safari tabs not shown on Mac

Safari tabs are not shown on my Mac. It does work vice versa, i.e. tabs opened on mac are shown on iPhone.

I have Safari checked in "iCloud" settings, I have tried to uncheck and re-check it on both. I have tried turning both my mac and phone off and on again. Didn't help.

I'm running iOS 11.1.1 on iPhone and OS X 10.11.6 on Mac.

Delete Caches and test.

Close all windows and quit all applications.

Hold "option" key down and click "Go" menu in the Finder menu bar.

Select "Library" from the dropdown.

Library > Caches > com.apple.Safari

Right click the com.apple.Safari file and select "Move To Trash.

Close windows and relaunch Safari.

Didn't help. I tried to erase com.apple.Safari in both Library/Caches and Library/Caches/CloudKit. I even restarted the computer and I still don't see the iPhone tabs.

I've noticed something else though. Everything works fine with iPad-Mac synchronization; I see every opened tab from both iPad and Mac on my iPhone, BUT I don't see tabs FROM iPhone on iPad and Mac.

Unfortunately didn't help 😟 Tried to sign out and back in again on iPhone and iPad. Situation is still the same – iPhone sees tabs on everything, nothing sees tabs on iPhone... (Mac and iPad see each others tabs)

Sigh... I remember the times of Apple when it just worked...
