MBP running Yosemite. iPhone 6 with iOS 9. Decided to try the new iCloud drive icon on iPhone.

I see folders for Textedit, Numbers, Pages on my iPhone on iCloud drive. Same as on my Mac on iCloud drive. 3 items each.

I put 1 empty folder and 1 200k PDF on iCloud drive on my Mac. However, nothing appears on my iPhone except for the Textedit, Numbers, Pages folder. 5 items on Mac, 3 items on phone.

Why? Syncing has finished. Can't I not see PDFs and other folders on my phone?

Not sure why you are experiencing that behavior. I created a new folder in my iCloud drive on my Mac and it appeared on my phone within seconds.

Everything that is on my Mac shows up on my phone.

Hmm, it magically worked after about 3 hours later. Interesting...

Now, how can I share these files with other people?
