How to Access and View iCloud Photos on the Web and Apple’s Photos App

Icloud photos

If you’re new to iOS, Apple has uploaded a new tutorial detailing how to access and view iCloud Photos on the web and within the Photos app on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac.

“iCloud Photos automatically keeps every photo and video you take in iCloud, so you can access your library from any device, anytime you want. Any changes you make to your collection on one device change on your other devices too,” is how Apple explains the feature.

“Your photos and videos are organized into Years, Months, Days, and All Photos. And all of your Memories and People are updated everywhere. That way you can quickly find the moment, family member, or friend you’re looking for,” says Apple.

“Your collection uploads to iCloud each time your device connects to Wi-Fi and your battery is charged. When you have iOS 11 or later, your library can update over cellular too. Depending on your Internet speed, the time it takes for you to see your photos and videos on all of your devices and might vary,” explains Apple’s support document on iCloud Photos.

Apple offers 5GB of free iCloud storage pace, but subscriptions are available for increased storage. In Canada, monthly iCloud storage prices are as follows:

  • 50GB: $1.29
  • 200GB: $3.99
  • 2TB: $12.99

If there’s one thing worth paying for, it’s extra iCloud storage, to know your precious family photos and videos are backed up every night you charge your iPhone (when connected to Wi-Fi).
