To access iCloud photos you will need an Apple device. If you own more than one Apple device, you learn to appreciate how east life becomes thanks to everything being connected via iCloud. Take an example, any photos taken on your iPhone can be automatically synced everywhere else.
This means after you take a photo on your phone, you can then view it later on your iPad or the iCloud website. This iCloud Photos feature is automatic, though you might require making sure that it is turned on. If iCloud Photos aren’t turning on with your device, you might not have any free storage space on the iCloud left.
To check if it’s on or not, go to the device’s Settings app, tap on your account name, then select “iCloud.” You will see a graph at the top of the screen that’ll show how your iCloud storage is being used. If it’s full, tap on “Manage Storage” to free up some space or you can always change your storage plan.
