iCloud syncing but iOS app not updating content

Usually I struggle to make iCloud sync between Mac and iPhone.

But this time I can go inspect the files and everything is there that I wrote a week ago and yet the iOS app just ignores it? I can write new stuff; but not read everything I wrote on Mac for about 4 days now.

Is my only option deleting the iOS app and reinstalling? I’ve “force quit” several times and don’t see a “reload” option.
