Our iPhone doesn't sync with old iCloud photos. It only syncs the past 5 years or so. How can you force a full sync? My devices have a lot of space I believe.


I would check the actual space settings on your phone. iCloud can show how much space might be needed.

settings app, iCloud, iCloud storage

Also, I would turn save space option to see if that makes the device more willing to sync down at least all the thumbnails needed.

optimize photo storage from iCloud Settings app, general, about showing space available
