The issue of 'photos taking so long to load' may occur due to the Internet speed, file size, file number, etc. Let's examine the details of the photo-loading issue.

  • Network connection problems: The network signal is weak or unstable, and the upload speed is slow.
  • File Size: If your photo or video file is larger (such as HD or RAW format), it will take longer to upload.
  • Number of files: Uploading too many photos at the same time may also cause individual photo uploads to slow down.
  • Software settings or faults: Your device or application may have software setting problems, such as an upload quality setting that is too high, a restricted application background operation, or an application version that is too old.
  • Server load: If the server you are uploading to is busy or under high load, it may also cause uploads to slow down.
  • Device performance: The device's own processor performance, memory capacity, operating system version and other factors may also affect the upload speed.

Here, we list some easy tips to fix photos taking so long to load.

1. Check and improve the quality of your network connection.

2. Reduce the number of photos uploaded at the same time.

3. Try to upload during a time when your device is idle and network conditions are good.

4. Update your iPhone to the latest version.
