iCloud Photo Library: What you need to know!

by birtanpublished on October 2, 2020

ICloud photo library is how Apple wants to make all your pictures and videos available on all your devices iPhone iPad and Mac it takes the photos app on iOS and the brand-new Photos app on OS 10 to check out our review of that and anything that you shoot on your iPhone or iPad anything that you import onto your Mac will just get taken up into iCloud and stored there for you and then push down to all the other devices so take a video on your iPhone take a picture on your iPad those will show up on your Mac import some pictures from your DSLR on your Mac those will show up on your iPhone so in a way it gives you

Backup it takes all the really important moments all the memories that you treasure and make sure there's a copy that is safe on Apple's servers more than that if you want it to it can optimize your storage and what that means uses a concept called Nearline which means that it just keeps everything online on the server but all of your favorites all of your frequently accessed photos and all your recent photos and videos are cached on your local device you can access them quickly there what you want to get to most all the stuff that's older the stuff that

You didn't favorite the stuff that you seldom if ever access that's kept up on Apple's cloud server so if you have a small life when you're 16 gigabytes or a 32 gigabyte iPad or a MacBook Air with a small SSD drive you don't have to fill it up with your photos but you still have access to them if you're online it also syncs any edits you make anything that you change about the color or the lighting or crops or straitens or rotate all of that gets synced to the cloud and push down to other devices so if you fix it on your iPhone it gets fixed as well on your iPad if you change your mind and

Revert it it gets reverted on your Mac all of that just gets taken care of now it is expensive Apple isn't showing any ads Apple isn't using your stuff as ads and Apple isn't mining your data so you're basically paying full price for the storage and that's different than what a company like Google might do but if you value your privacy and you don't mind paying for the service it really does deliver on the promise of all of your pictures and videos on all of your devices
