Update: iCloud Text Replacements Are Moving to CloudKit Soon

Good news related to yesterday’s item regarding the fact that text replacement shortcuts have never synced reliably between Macs or iOS devices: an Apple spokesperson emailed me to say they checked with the team, and an update that moves text replacement syncing to CloudKit should be rolling out to iOS 11 and MacOS 10.13 High Sierra users in the “next month or so”.

That is music to my ears. I was thinking yesterday that this might take until next year (with iOS 12 and MacOS 10.14) to fix. Delighted to hear that Apple is already on the case.
