The syncing itself happens just as quickly as ever) and on my older iPad Air it can take up to 10 minutes sometimes.

Why would it do that in your case and not for everyone else? The only way to find out exactly why this is happening for you would be to replicate exactly what you are doing, with similar equipment and exactly the same projects.
I don’t remember if the question has been asked before, but does your sync folder in Dropbox contain anything else apart from the .scriv projects? Any subfolders?

I can't see how this could be the case, since it was fine before. The iPad I use is the 10.5" iPad Pro (not sure of RAM, but with 256 GB total memory, of which 184 GB is currently free) which I bought earlier this year.
I previously used Scrivener iOS on the iPad Air 2 - which I assume would have less RAM and has only 128 GB space, with 74 GB free)- and still never encountered this issue.

Currently using an iPad (4th gen) and had no problems with syncing to 2.x projects, it usually took a matter of seconds to deal with changes I made to any of my six projects, which total about 550Mb. After upgrading to 3, it seems to take ages. Today I went to sync changes to a single file and it took five and a half minutes and the project hadn't been opened on the Mac. Five and a half minutes to upload one text file to Dropbox? Something must be wrong.
