Make sure you turn on i Cloud Photo Library on each device.
So if your i Phone is not connected to Wi-Fi and doesn’t have a significant charge, your i Phone won’t upload your new photos to i Cloud and won’t appear on your other devices. I’m not sure what all you have tried, feel free to skip anything you might have already done.
Go to Settings So, I have the same problem with i Cloud. These images are now in my Photos, but they are not in i Cloud Photos Library (hence not on my i Phone and i Pads. The "Use i Cloud Photo library" is on (in Photos prefs).
My photostream is not updating
Visit Stack Exchange The Settings page says that Photos will automatically by sent to Photo Stream when I am connected to Wi-Fi, however I've waited several minutes and don't see them in i Photo. Is there any way to force them to be synced to i Cloud from the i Phone? I had taken 40 or so photos on i Phone 4, i OS 5.1, and when I got back to Wi Fi connection, I waited more than an hour for the photos to appear in Photo Stream either on the i Phone or my i Pad, and they didn't.
None of the following worked: Eventually, after an hour or so, in desparation I forced the i Phone to power-down, and turned it back on.
I believe from your post you are likely using i Cloud photo library.
i Cloud Photo Library FAQ - Apple Support When do photos and videos upload to i Cloud Photo Library?
This is my main Mac, the one that Then it is uploading and when it is complete everything will be there - uploading the entire library is triggered by user action causing the local library to be disconnected from ICP and then reconnecting - this can be cause by moving the library, turning i Cloud or ICPL off and back on, repairing the library or any other action that disconnects the library from i Cloud - anytime you do that the library must be uploaded in full to verify library integrity Leave it alone, keep the Mac awake, powered on connected to the internet so it can finish as quickly as possible - but at best it is a slow process and you should never disconnect it and reconnected it unless it is critical that you do - doing this is a last resort LNThanks for your help, Larry! I actually tried that before posting, but after one full day, progresses were very little (still a staggering numbers of pics "waiting" to be uploaded). And some that were there before but which I decided to delete from my library still were. I'll let my old i Mac peacefully on for a few days and see what's happening. Photos on i Pad and i Phone are syncing fine, ones uploaded over last 4 weeks to Photos on i Mac from an SD card are still trying to upload (31 items) .
The corollary is that the photos taken on i Pad and i Phone are not downloaded to the i`Mac as I understand from last time this happened that uploads take precedence over downloads.
The above is an error message I'm receiving when I try to force a sync by turning photos on and off in the icloud control panel. I certainly appreciate any help anyone can offer on fixing this issue and telling me why it's happening to begin with.
Okay I get that the transer is not happening but how do we fix it? I'm beyone frustrated that I cannot figure out why this is not working." The error message follows: The problem with the suggested solution is that when I go to logout of i Cloud, I get an alert window that says everything on my computer associated with i Cloud will be deleted, but will still be accessible through i Cloud.
Is apple trying to tell us they will no longer transfer data to PC's?
Since yesterday my photos won't sync in i Cloud, specifically photos I took on my phone yesterday are not showing up on my i Pad or my Mac. My husband shared an album and I went through it importing the ones I liked to Photos, but they didn't import.
Today's photos then started appearing straight away on the i Pad.
