iCloud Photo Library automatically keeps every photo and video you take in iCloud, so you can access your library from any device, anytime you want.
When you turn on iCloud Photo Library, your photos and videos automatically upload to iCloud. They're not duplicated in your iCloud backup.
Here's how you can Turn on iCloud Photo Library:
- On your devices with iOS 8.3 or later, go to Settings > iCloud > Photos, then turn on iCloud Photo Library.
- On your Mac with OS X 10.10.3 or later, go to System Preferences > iCloud. Click Options next to Photos, then select iCloud Photo Library.
