The default behavior is for iCloud Photo Library not to store full-size versions of your photos on your iPhone and iPad: The theory is that only thumbnails are stored on your iPhone/iPad until you decide to view/edit/share the photo, at which point a device-optimized or full-size version of your photo is downloaded from iCloud. (Note: I know a full-size ...

Kind of. The metadata is there and can be read by Photos on the iOS - I'm just not sure that there's a good way of automatically doing it and grouping them as you want. But try this: launch Photos on your phone, hit the search magnifying glass, and start typing someone's name. It'll give you a menu list of all of the people, locations, albums, keywords ...

Share it with the person - then once the album is created, in Photos, there will be an icon with a head in a circle. This is the settings pane for the shared photo album. Full Procedure: Create Shared iCloud Album Select new Shared Album from left side pane in Photos Click head in a circle icon to get an option to turn on the Public Website. Check that ...

Best way I found was to: Open Health App and head to Health data < All and use the arrow on the upper right of the screen then choose Export. It will take a while if you have a data. You'll be able to get a ZIP file that you can mail to yourself. Just use XCode and you should (at least!) be able to read your data. You could then use dropbox to sync it ...

That device has only a thumbnail and is indicating the progress fetching a higher resolution image. From Apple KB - My Photo Stream FAQ What resolution are My Photo Stream photos? On a Mac or PC, your photos are downloaded and stored in full resolution. On iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Apple TV, your photos are delivered in a device-optimized ...

Add Photos actions to Automator using https://photosautomation.com/ Construct the following Folder Action in Automator I'm still not 100% satisfied, since folder actions are not super robust so I welcome other answers!

Yes, you can backup as many devices as you have the ability to sign in to and have space for the backups in your iCloud, but iCloud Backup can only back up to the main iCloud account on a device.

I practice, the optimize space has zero effect on your photo library on OS X initially. When you enable a system Photos library and opt in to the iCloud Photo storage, it tells the Photos Agent background process to start uploading photos to the cloud. When that initial pass is done, then deduplication in the cloud and download of new photos starts. ...

That alert will popup every time someone link your Apple ID to a new device. Short answer: if it's not your Mac, yes your account is compromised. When you try to activate FaceTime or other Apple service on devices you have to log in using you Apple ID and password. So basically someone just entered this info. First thing to do is to change your ...

Family Sharing is not a good option because you manually need to select the photos you share. If you want you and your wife to have access to all the same photos, the solution is to use the same iCloud account for photo sharing for both of you. This also means you only need to pay for iCloud storage once. What makes this feasible is that you can then setup ...

The apple ID is the user. At some point you'll need to bite the bullet and create new apple IDs for each user if you want separate texts/email accounts etc. My wife and I use a multitude of applications that can share data across accounts, like Anylist for reminders/grocery lists, etc (this can be integrated with the Reminders app Photostream for photos ...

Unfortunately, it would not appear at all if they did a root hardware restore (basically some jailbreak methods). There is a possibility (as tron_jones points out) that you must use a password in order to turn off Find My iPhone, but if the person was skilled in iPhone theivery, they will know how to restore the phone without this. If they are not, they ...

There is no way to get the URL from the Photos app that I am aware of. However, you can create a public album (see screenshot) which will then give you an album URL. You could scrape that page for image URLs. Psuedo Xpath to do so: //div[@class="view image-view canvas-image-view"] (Note that the page is written in such a way that only the photo[s] visible ...

No. You need to contact the person who sold you the phone and get them to either give you the iCloud details, or give you your money back. The phone can not be activated by Apple until it has been unlocked using the iCloud details (login and password) that it was locked with. This is a security measure to stop stolen phones from being useful to people. If ...

Go to Settings -> iCloud If it's not enabled in there, it is not enabled on the device.

I had this problem, and I did this: I turned off the icloud calendar on the phone. I did a hard reboot of the phone. I turned on the icloud calendar on the phone. I set the phone and computer calendars to Push. I refreshed the iPhone calendar. (While in the Calendar app, go to Calendars and drag the screen down for a refresh.) Now it works great.

The correct answer is No, there is not. Apple does not let you share iCloud Storage with family members, unfortunately. Here's a forum link where this has been discussed: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/6543858 You can share your account and password, but then the storage is yours and not really sharing with a sub-account. Each individual Apple ID ...

Merge them into one library (iPhoto Library Manager will do this job), then upload them to iCloud by designating the combined library as System Photo Library in Photos' preferences, after opening and converting it with Photos. Depending on upload speed, prepare for a very long wait. And if you then/afterwards want it on your MacBook make a new empty Photos ...

Doing an encrypted backup on iTunes (unencrypted backups don't include health datas) and using a backup reader app, like iBackupbot (http://download.cnet.com/iBackupBot/3000-18553_4-75532275.html), that will ask you your backup password, you can get on your computer the healthdata folder which contains all your Health datas!

Open the Photos app, go File -> Import, and navigate to the folder with the photos. If the photos can't be imported using the Import feature in Photos and are in an iPhoto library, you could first open the library with iPhoto, go File -> Export, and export the originals. They could then be imported using the Photos app.

I turned iCPL, Photo Stream and iCloud Photo Sharing off in Settings/General/Photos & Camera, rebooted her phone and then turned on all that I had turned off. The phone then showed a spinning gear for about 5 minutes saying "Turning On" and after that I went to Settings/General/Usage/Manage Storage, and saw that her phone regained 2Gb of storage back ...

No - You don't initially save any space on your Mac if you choose iCloud storage. Yes - if you set "optimize" in Photos preferences, then once you fill your storage with other files, the Photos library will shrink itself. You can choose to store the original size images in the cloud and let the Photos app "optimize" and resample/recompress images to ...

I came here while trying to solve the same problem (I think) and after like 45 minutes of messing around to no avail (including trying to delete all program data and return to factory settings), grgarside's answer put me on the right track. To remove my unwanted iCloud duplicate account, I first did as grgarside suggested, and deleted the folders in ...

I know this is an old question, but since it was one of the first hits on a google search I thought it could use an answer that worked for me. I had a similar problem to this - I had a duplicate of my iCloud account that I couldn't remove, and I received the same message about having to delete the account in system preferences. Deleting the account from ...

From Mac Contacts.. File menu > Export > Contacts Archive then File Menu > Import Or from iCloud… Prefs 'cog' Select All Export vCard - which will save a 'batch' vCard to your default DL location [then, irritatingly, immediately try to import it to your Mac Contacts list, so hit Cancel] Swap iCloud accounts, then import vCard

I believe you are misunderstanding how My Photo Stream works. It is intended as a temporary (up to 30 days or 1000 photos at any given time) mechanism to allow each photo you take to sync to each of your devices - iOS, Mac and Windows. There is also a limit of 1000 photos in My Photo Stream at any given time. As new photos are uploaded, older ones are ...

The size of your local Photos library is not necessarily indicative of the size of the photos stored on iCloud Photo Library. My local library is 83GB (of which 24GB is Masters) and the full-resolution uploads on iCloud Photo Library take up ~25GB. Given that you still have some items to upload, and there could be discrepancies in how space is being ...

If the phone was erased as part of the repair, no, there is no way to get them back.

I tried Photo Library briefly and had a similar problem. The progress bar would go to about 40% then disappear. The problem for me was a lack of storage space, and so it would just fail at a certain point. Go to General > iCloud > Storage to check the amount of space available on your iCloud account, then check the amount your photos take up (I believe this ...
