Transfer iPhone photos to iPad via iCloud

Matters need to pay attention to:

1. You need to upgrade your iPhone and iPad to iOS 8.1 or above.

2. If you choose to use iCloud Photo Library to transfer photo from iPhone to iPad, the photos you synced to iTunes before will be removed.

How to do:

Step 1Go to "Settings" to click "iCloud" and log in with your Apple ID (iCloud account forgot? recover iCloud password now).

Step 2Tap "Photos" to enter the interface, and turn "iCloud Photo Library" on. This operation will automatically upload and store your entire library in iCloud to let you access photos and videos from all your devices. Wait a moment, and then you can view how many photos are uploading.

You can select options between "Optimize iPhone Storage" and "Download and Keep Originals". On one hand, photos with optimized versions will be saved in your iPhone and full-resolution versions will be transferred to your iCloud by choosing "Optimize". On the other hand, you can save original photos in your iPhone with "Keep Originals" if your iPhone has enough space.

Step 3Transfer iPhone photos to iPad via wireless.

A wireless network will be needed to copy these photos to iCloud Photo Library. After you use iCloud Photo Library, it will automatically upload your new photos as long as there is Wi-Fi.

When you have finished the iPhone photos to iPad transfer, you can find your iPhone photos in your iPad.
