Why iCloud Does Not Sync Photos

I recently set up a new iPhone 14 pro device (iOS 16.6) based on my iCloud account linked to my previous phone. But when I take a picture on the new device, it does not sync with iCloud either.

Apple offers iCloud, a helpful cloud service that helps you store materials and sync data across devices. However, some users have reported that their iCloud photos are not syncing. Some of them might ask why is iCloud not syncing all photos?

In this case, there are four major reasons.

  • Your iCloud storage is full or almost full.
  • Sign in to iCloud with the wrong Apple ID on your device.
  • Insufficient power supply and poor Wi-Fi.
  • Suppose your iCloud Shared Photo Library is in iOS 16.1, iPadOS 16.1, MacOS Ventura, and above. In that case, you cannot see your photos in the Personal Library after moving pictures to your Shared Library. 

"Thus, how do I get iCloud to sync my photos?" Based on the above, you can refer to the following fixes to get iCloud to sync photos.

  • Fix 1. Upgrade your iCloud storage plan or adopt EaseUS MobiMover to export photos from your iPhone to your PC, external HDD, or other storage devices for backup or transmission.
  • Fix 2. Log into your device with the correct Apple ID.
  • Fix 3. Provide sufficient power and a good network.

Since most users face the issue of photos not uploading to iCloud without enough storage, why not give this software, EaseUS MobiMover a chance?

Step 1. Connect your iPhone to the computer > install and launch EaseUS MobiMover.

Step 2. Select Phone to PC > Select Photos > Adjust the destination.

Step 3. Click Transfer and wait patiently.
