Apple's "My Photo Stream" service is set to shut down on July 26, 2023

It’s warning for those who use iPhone, iPad as Apple decided to shut down my photo stream service on July 26, 2023 and encouraging users to use iCloud photos instead of photo stream.

  • Those who still using the Apple photo stream, they should transfer photos on iCloud.
  • For now the upload on iCloud is free, you can upload up to 1000 photos for free.

If you are not aware of this, then we would like to notify you that Apple recently announced to users via email that My Photo Stream will be closing down.

What to do now as Apple photo stream shut down?

Well guys It’s still possible to share photos across your Apple devices using the iCloud Photos service after My Photo Stream.

However, this will take up storage space, meaning you may need to stump up for a more expensive tier of iCloud to get enough room for all your photos.

How to save photos from My Photo Stream on iPhone or iPad

  1. In the Photos app, tap the Albums heading.  Just check the bottom or sidebar on your device screen
  2. Open the My Photo Stream album.
  3. Select the photos you want to save on the device.
  4. Tap Share, and then Save Image

The Share menu can also let you send your selected photos somewhere else, such as your emails, google drive,  AirDrop or the Files app. Choose whichever location makes sense for your needs and just save it or share it for the future access or reference!!

How to save photos from My Photo Stream on Mac

This process is a little different on a Mac, but just as straightforward.

  • In the Photos app, open the My Photo Stream album.
  • Select the photos you want to save onto the Mac.
  • Drag the photos to the Library header in the sidebar to save them.

As we mentioned above, Apple is shutting the service down fully on July 26. Make sure you’re done with this before then, or you’ll have to save your photos to devices via iCloud or physical data connections as we mentioned above.

iCloud Photos‌ is available on iPhones and iPads running iOS 8.3 or later and Macs running OS X Yosemite or later.
