With Photo Stream—a feature of iCloud—photos you take on iPhone are automatically uploaded
to iCloud and pushed to all your other devices that have Photo Stream enabled. Photos uploaded
to iCloud from your other devices and computers are pushed to your Photo Stream album on
iPhone. See “iCloud” on page 16.
Turn on Photo Stream: Go to Settings > iCloud > Photo Stream.

New photos you’ve taken are uploaded to your Photo Stream when you leave the Camera app
and iPhone is connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi. Any other photos added to your Camera Roll—
including photos downloaded from email and text messages, images saved from web pages, and
screenshots—are also uploaded to your Photo Stream and pushed to your other devices. Photo
Stream can share up to 1000 of your most recent photos across your iOS devices. Your computers
can keep all your Photo Stream photos permanently.
