If that’s on for both and on same sync chain, definitely should be syncing. But again, might not be the way you’re thinking.
Will only sync if you typed in the full URL.
So like if I use my PC to type in
community.brave.com and visit this site. Then I click on different topics, such as this one. When I go to check the History on my iPhone, it will show
community.brave.com but it will not show
https://community.brave.com/t/bookmark-and-history-will-not-sync/502146/2 because I did not type that link in.
This means anything you visit using Favorites, Bookmarks, clicking links, or whatever will not show in synced history.
If you expect this to have open tabs on your device, you’re thinking wrong. What this does it let you view open tabs. If you’re on Windows, you have to go to
History and then
Tabs from other devices and you’ll see a list of things open on your iPhone.
From your iPhone, you would need to act like you’re changing tabs, so hit the little square thing with the number. On the top right you’ll see an icon that looks like a computer with a phone in front of it, which will be
Tabs from Other Devices. If you click on it, then all tabs you have open on other devices will be visible.
It’s also important to note that the tabs only send out signals to sync every 5 minutes. So if you expect it to be visible instantly, that’s not going to happen. It tends to be quicker to bookmark and pull it up than it does for it to show on tabs from other devices, but it’s all a roll of the dice.
Can you verify if this is what you’re looking at? I want to make sure you’re expecting the right behavior and whether nothing is happening or what your experiencing.
What I can tell you is I’m using a Windows 11 and an iPhone running iOS 16.6. They are syncing with absolutely no issues. Every once in a while (rare issue) my iPhone will bug out and show like I’m not synced when I go to check tabs from other devices, but I usually just have to wait the few minutes for the next sync thing to go through and then it pops up.
