Specify a place to save photos ands
First, choose a storage location for your collection of photos ands. You can make them available on all your devices using the iCloud Photos feature. You can also store them locally on a Mac or Windows computer.
Using iCloud Photos, you can access photos ands on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, Apple TV, iCloud.com, and even on a Windows computer. Your new snapshots are automatically added to iCloud Photos, and any organizational changes or edits are synced across all your devices.
- Make sure the software on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, Mac, or Apple TV is up to date.
- Set up iCloud on all your devices. If you are using a Windows computer, download iCloud for Windows. Make sure all of your devices are signed in to iCloud using the same Apple ID.
- Make sure your device is connected to a Wi-Fi network.
To enable iCloud Photos, do the following:
- On iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, go to Settings [your name] iCloud Photos and turn on iCloud Photos.

If you have already synced photos on your iOS device via iTunes, and then turned on the iCloud Photos function on it, the message “Photos ands synced with iTunes will be deleted.” Photos ands synchronized with the computer will remain on the computer, but will be deleted from the iOS device.
To copy these photos ands back to your iOS device, turn on iCloud Photos on your Mac or Windows computer. After that, photos from your computer will be downloaded to iCloud, and you can open them on any of your devices. After turning on iCloud Photos, all photos are saved in iCloud, and they can be opened in the Photos program on a Mac computer or in a folder on a Windows computer.
