Isnt it supposed to be backing my shit up. For some reason in my photostream it says I have 161 photos. My camera roll has over 800. You doing anything icloud? Need more hampsters in the wheel?
Watch out for nude selfies.
Well let me ask this. How do I take all my videos and put them up into my icloud account? I thought apple was supposed to be making this stuff simpler.
I'm using Dropbox to auto-sync all my camera roll content.
maybe this? Goto settings, iCloud, turn Photos to "On"
Im just so tired of apple at this point. Nothing works properly. They have this feature called icloud, I spent money to get more space on this piece of shit, almost nothing on my phone is actually backed up to it.
I spent $20 to get only 160 of my pix backed up and my contacts. Fuck. You. Apple. Fucking crooks.
Not sure why it doesn't work for you. I take a photo and it's on my iCloud instantly, ready in iPhoto in my home computer, and i have 100% control over what is uploaded, what is private, etc. It sucks that you have such issues with basic Apple products, I really feel for you.
Dont even ask about my apple id nonsense that I have literally talked to 8 apple employees about. Its been a nightmare.
If I take a pic right now, it will go up to my photostream. What I never knew is they are automatically deleted. I was led to believe icloud was a backup system, but it isnt, its a transfer system, nothing more.
Well I have 35 videos, I have no way to download ios8, and its impossible for me to put those videos on icloud. Shouldnt that be made clearer before I spend money for more space? If stuff is deleted after 30 days, why in the world would I ever need 20gb?
If youre curious about my apple id shit, I have 2. I dont know why. One is tied to my phone, the other is tied to my itunes account for purchases and they both conflict with each other. Ive called apple many times and this never got resolved, and it causes a lot of problems on my iphone and ipad. Just gave up on it after a year of talking to these idiots like 9 times.
You're confusing Photo Stream with Backup. The two are different things. Your videos are backed up if you have Camera Roll enabled on iCloud Backup. Everything you thick in there will be backed up.
Photo Stream is weird but it's only for sharing stuff instantly across devices, it's not a backup solution. So, even if you don't have Photo Stream enabled, but have Camera Roll on iCloud backup, your assets are fine.
But I would advise to get everything to the computer before doing any upgrade.
I have photos turned on in my icloud settings. No mention of the camera roll in the settings. The option is called photos, which Im guessing doesnt include my videos.
Dude, you start blaming like crazy but in fact you don't know what you're doing.
iCloud > Storage & Backup > Manage Storage > Choose the device you want to manage > Backup Options
I dont understand how this icloud backup works. I plug the phone in, its on wifi all the time, so Im guess this has backed up, yet there is no mention of it on the icloud site, no way for me to verify on my phone if anything is backed up, so what is the point of this? I could go delete my 35 videos right now and for all I know they are just completely gone.
Backups are for restore, not casual access to random files. You restore and everything in that backup is restored. You can't access individual files. iCloud Drive will work like Dropbox so let's see how that goes, but if you just want cloud space for your files and access them, I would use Dropbox.
There's a genius to help with that
