iCloud is not Syncing Bookmarks

Problem: iCloud can usually sync bookmarks between Macs and iOS devices, but after upgrading to Mac OS X Mountain Lion, Safari bookmarks aren’t syncing anymore. How can I fix this problem?

I tried syncing bookmarks on my iMac running OS X 10.8, and you are right — iCloud is not syncing Safari bookmarks on my iPhone. I figured out how to fix this:

Solution: Unchecking and rechecking bookmarks option did the trick. Follow this step by step guide:

Step 1

Launch System Preference, go to iCloud.
