Why You Should Disable iCloud Photo iCloud Backup Failed - You Do Not Have 11 months ago   05:56

One of the new features in iOS called iCloud Photo Library is definitely not helping. This feature, while in theory, allows you to backup all of your photos and videos on any of your iOS or MacOS devices to the cloud, takes up precious iCloud storage and adds up really quickly. Most people I know have run out of storage just from iCloud backups (another issue I have with iOS, but I digress) so adding this is almost a sure-fire way to guarantee you run out of iCloud storage.

There is a better way though. I touched on this in a video a long time ago about backing up your photos and videos but think we need to revisit the concept. You should turn off iCloud Photo Library and instead use another free service like, say, Google Photos which automatically backs up all of your photos and videos in an unlimited quantity for free.

So here's how we do that.

Does Google Photos store Live Photos?
Linda Byram
SO I have a number of albums created using iCloud...I have Google Photos as well. Google does NOT have my albums. How do I transfer albums from Apple to Google?
Jackie Noel
Thank you so Much!!! I’ve had so much trouble with icloud and my photos and didn’t know how to get rid of it or where to put them!!
I appreciate you so much for your help!!
Angel Roman
Ahhhh...... Great info.
Hey It’s Charlie
So if I do this can I delete my photos from my phone and they’ll be in there?? Or what?
Gunit L
its free but all of your photos are now available to goolge. Thats why its free
Tina Jesson
what great advice - really appreciate you taking me through the steps. I had never really got this before. We share photos through google photos anyway across my business and all these photos go on fb anyway so google has your content anyway.
Super! Very helpful for avoiding iCloud fee

What will happen to my photos in iPhone when I disable the photos and delete the photos from iCloud? Will they stay on my device?

So your saying all my photos I lost from my iPad mini 2 I can get them back using google photos? (Lost my phots because ran out of iCloud storage) 😭
Gennasis Diaz
It has to be free 😤

Soooo when it was available only on Pixel devices for unlimited storage it was fine I saw it as a perk to win over iPhone users.... BUT as soon as I saw that it was not a perk and it was FREE TO ALL then my red lights went off like crazy. You might think that it is amazing bla bla bla well let me tell you something NO ONE IS GIVING ANYTHING FOR FREE there is a way for them to charge all those GIGs back trust me and honestly I don even want to know what they are doing I just stopped using it and as someone who was android user from start till now late 2019 it tells you something and that something is that I want to stay away from Google as much as I can and use some of theirs apps like maybe Translate and Earth and that is F**** it I dont trust that company a bit anymore. I would rather pay 12€ per year and have 50GB with Apple iCloud and lock myself in to that ecosystem(and I was terified just by thinking of it) at least there is some control and order but I see Android ecosystem as some sort of slums and everyone is doing their thing and basicaly nothing is standardized and cross compatible as it should be, everyone is pulling on their side and trying to be better than others while Apple kept it simple and real. Sry but there is a reason why apple charge what Apple charge and it is worth it just took me a bit to accept that... All that AI tech and tracking and "adjusted" "recomendations" bla bla bla is powered by us being trigger happy with you Cams and having no other option then to go with FREE Google Photos (and everything else that is free) maaaaan was I stupid... Same goes with FB and WhatsUp etc. Lock your self while you can xD

used Google Fotos from the start, 2015. I uploaded all digital Fotos, starting this for 2001. Created Albums etc. All fine. Great thing beside it backuped (downloaded) all my fotos to my varius PCs... using this as kind of personal, local security backup. The real PCs I use plus one old iin the cellar, one old in the attic. I uploaded "origional", paid for 200GB storage.

Because of Googles idea to end synchronisation between drive and photos - and that right in the middle of summer vacation season if have to end this.
Going to iCloud (OneDrive is renaming the files from the iPhone which could create a chaos), spending the 0,99€ a month for the start.

As iCloud is not availeble on Android, the next phone will be an iPhone - I don't need the latest modell, so the price tag is not different
Crystal Smith
Thank you so much for the info. This has saved me so much time and money. You’re the best!!
Iris Cunningham
I have a question, what happens after the 30 days. Do the photos get deleted from your actual camera roll or do they stay on your phone and not get backed up anymore??? Please someone answer me because I really need to know xx
John E
No way is Google having access to all my photos lol
Omar Ezzat
Isnt google really private and they can share my photos any where? I have private photos and Idk whether to download google photos or just suffer with that 5 gb icloud storage. I have the money to pay these to upgrade icloud storage but I dont have a wallet or a credit card or something
Mario Quintana
I just do it the old fashion way tbh. Save up my photos in a vault on my app then download them on my computer then make a copy and put them in a flash drive. And that’s only for pics I really care. Tbh most of my pictures are just selfies or pics of stupid shit that can be replaced in a minute if I lose the flash drive or computer
