Will iCloud Photo Library auto upload from Mac? ...


iMore Question

I have several GBs of photos in iPhoto on my Mac Mini. And I have a bunch on my iPhone as well.

I just went and enabled iCloud Photo Library on my account and I believe on both devices.

So will both devices now start automatically pushing all of those pics up into iCloud for me? Or do I need to manually select and upload them?

Thanks very much in advance,

p.s. I did spring for the extra iCloud storage space.

All devices should push their photo libraries to iCloud Photo Library. iCloud Photo Library will then eliminate any duplicates.

But this is pure speculation as I don’t have personal experience with multiple iOS devices and iCloud Photo Library enabled on all of them.
