Why You Should Disable iCloud Photo iCloud Backup Failed - You Do Not Have 7 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.

Solution doesn’t comes until 2 minutes in.
i dont even backup my phone anymore 😂😂😂 rip
Are you kidding me ???? hahaha Switch Apple for a Google "free"service. NO WAY.

I like you.
Apart from privacy and convenience, here's one more personal reason for me not to use Google:
Google services are blocked in Mainland China. Which means that in order to sync or watch my photos, I would always have to use a VPN, which slows things down a lot and makes Google even less convenient here than it is already.
Don't do this, Google is known to harvest private user data for years now, it is free because they are selling your private data, nothing is free!
I get Messages iCloud storage full. But I still have a ton of phone storage
I wouldn't trust Google with my dirty laundry. They are evil and regularly snoop on their customers.

Google services suck

Yeah google does it for free, because they will own your photos once you give it to them.

You failed to mention iCloud Photo Library also syncs across devices implying that Google does and iCloud doesn't, but it does. Also, you keep saying Google does it for free when it sucks whatever data it can from you devices and sells that information for profit. With iCloud, you pay for storage, but the storage you get is private, yours, and not for sale by Google, which, for me, and the low cost of paying for storage makes it worth it for me.

While transferring my Photos to Google, The Google App deleted thousands of my photos in iCloud. At the same time thousands of Photos were also deleted in Google. I am now returning to iCloud because it is save.

Does this work? I have over 700 items including photos and videos which I pay a dollar a month for. Also I need to make a new Apple ID account so being able to transfer it all would be grateful

Apple is so clever it’s starts with free storage than 1.00 a month the longer you are an Apple customer the more storage you fill up. Eventually you are at
5 than 10 dollars a month. They are making mint with their iCloud storage. They also found a way to keep you enslaved because after 2,4,6 years of using icloud. You won’t consider switching to another competitor because Apple has all your data on their iCloud server. It’s like they own your data it’s their property if you dont believe me try getting your data off and close your iCloud account. I loved Apple till I tried to leave apple. You can’t just download all your photos and notes off iCloud to your pc. You can request a “copy” of your notes they will send it to you in a Zip drive the only way you can read the notes is if you have an Apple computer. If you use a non apple device they encrypt your notes so you cannot decipher them.

You shouldn’t be using iCloud at all. The phrase “iCloud” makes spying on all of your personal data very cute and fluffy… Doesn’t it?
