I have very little space on my 16Gb iPhone, however I have a ton of space now in iCloud, how can I move videos from my iPhone to iCloud?


Unfortunately, iCloud will not sync your videos from your iPhone. They will not be available in your photo stream or when you do a restore.

You could use a different cloud service.

Dropbox offers 2GB of free space (or 1TB for $9.99 a month or $99 a year) When you connect your phone, it will sync your photos & videos under a folder called "Camera Uploads". Once your videos are in your dropbox account, you can safely delete them from your phone and get that space back.

Also, Google Drive is very reasonable. 100GB for $1.99 a month. Connect your phone and manually copy your videos.


Assuming you are talking about videos that are in Photos:

You need at least iOS 8.0.2 to do this.
Go to Settings -> iCloud -> Photos -> Enable iCloud Photo Library
(yes it works for videos as well)

It's still in beta so read the warning it will show you carefully.

  • Your videos will not sync with iCloud. Apple has confirmed this on their website. – AbsterT Mar 19 '15 at 23:44
  • I'm talking about iCloud Photo Library, not Photostream or backup, which would be redundant anyway. – Nikita Kukushkin Mar 20 '15 at 7:16
