    I started to use iCloud Photo Library without any problem on my iMac. Now my library is approx 100GB in size and i was able to sync everything into iCloud. And it synced perfect to my MacBook Air where it now has only 26GB in size. Perfect!

    Now my question: Can i try to enable iCloud Photo Library on my iPhone 5 with only 16GB and approx 4GB free space? Or will this overflood the iPhone? What size can i expect will this 100GB library on my iPhone? Is there any way to calculate this in advance? Can i define minimum free space on my iOS devices for other programs?

    Thanks for the useful links. But it only explains that there will be no problems on other OS X devices, still no true explanation that it will run smoothly on iOS devices with very little memory left. As i really want to try this without confirmation that it works - any other info if i can switch icon Photo Library on my iphone with only 4GB left if my library is 100GB big?

    Thanks in advance for any inputs :-)

    As far as I know you'll enable it and click optimized iPhone storage. It will manage the memory correctly. It won't fill up the available storage from what I've read.
