But I’m trying to cut the cord, and as both the iPhone and the iPad are now updatable without a computer connection, I’m attempting to change my old syncing habits.
And so yesterday I spent the day in New York. It was such a comfortable day (a wonderful relief within this blazing hot summer) and the perfect day for a city stroll.
While we walked, I took photos with my iPhone. But this time was different from other times. Before I left home, I enabled the Photo Stream on both my iPhone and on my iPad. (You can turn it on by going to Settings > Photos > Photo Stream OR Settings > iCloud > Photo Stream)
With Photo Stream set to “on”, I knew that all of the photos I took with my iPhone would magically appear on my iPad as soon as both devices were in a wireless environment.So, when I got home (a wireless environment) I eagerly went to my iPad to see if the photos were there.
They WERE!!! I was so delighted! (for about 10 minutes) It took about that long to realize that not ALL of the photos had transferred. Random ones simply didn’t copy to the iPad.
I tried a few possible fixes, with no luck. This a puzzle, and I’m determined to find out why. You’ll have to stay tuned to this blog for the answer.
In the meantime, I’m still generally happy with the experience.
There are a few other things to know about using Photo Stream, and I’ll be writing a post about that, before the end of the week.
