Managing Photos

We recommend one of the following two methods of saving or backing up your files:

Turn on iCloud Photo Library

  • On your iPad go to Settings > [your Apple ID/Name] > iCloud > Photos, then turn on iCloud Photo Library. In iOS 10.2 or earlier, go to Settings > iCloud > Photos.

When you make edits in the Photos app on your iOS device or your Mac, the photo automatically updates across all of your devices. So when you crop or enhance a photo from your iPhone, you see the changes when you access your library from your Mac. If you change your mind and want to revert to the original view, it’s no problem. The original photos and videos are stored in iCloud and you can go back to them at any time.

Even the photos and videos you delete on one device, delete everywhere that you use iCloud Photo Library. And if you want to get a photo back, you can restore it from the Recently Deleted album for 30 days.
