iCloud Sync

  • Updated


iCloud can be used to keep library details like lists, watched history, and ratings in sync between multiple devices.


  • Logged into the same iCloud ID on all devices
  • iCloud Drive enabled on all devices (details here)
  • iCloud Sync enabled in Infuse > Settings > Sync
  • Some free iCloud storage (details here)
  • Running the latest version of Infuse on all devices (release notes)

All devices: It's possible to login using separate IDs for iCloud and the App Store. To use iCloud Sync you will need to use the same ID for iCloud on all devices. The App Store IDs can be different, if needed.

Apple TV: It's possible to have multiple user profiles set up with different Apple IDs. To use iCloud Sync, you will need to ensure the Default User is using the correct iCloud ID.
