Crop showing on desktop but not appearing on iPhone for 20 minutes

Lightroom Version
Operating System
Windows 10, iOS
So I cropped an image on the desktop, then for some reason went over to the iPhone (ah yes, to "save to camera roll" then post it to Whatsapp or similar), but the crop did not show on the iPhone for about 20 minutes - but both desktop & iPhone said they were "synced" - delay on Adobe servers? My broadband is 48mbps download & 9mbps upload

Had you switched to a different photo? It doesn't sync every time you move a slider as it would kill your internet.
