iPhone iCloud Photo Library Low Disk Space

My cousin’s husband’s iPhone was not uploading his photos to iCloud Photo Library. It was a bit of a head scratcher because it wasn’t an Apple server issue because my iPhone was uploading my photos at the same time I was troubleshooting. I tried rebooting his phone, closing the Photos app.

I caved and looked it up on the interwebs and I found a solution on the Apple Support Communities site. He had less than 300MB and photos and videos will not upload if you have less than that. Odd but removing some photos and apps he didn’t use worked and his photos started to upload.

Photos For Mac iCloud Upload Issues

After I upgraded my wife’s laptop to 10.10.3 with the new Photos app, I noticed that my internet connection got congested. This was in the evening so no one was really using it in the house.

I saw that the Photos app was uploading a large number of my wife’s photos which was expected but I didn’t expect it to choke my internet.

I saw someone on Twitter have the same issues and then I saw the post by Jason Snell. I’m hoping that Apple will have a fix or it could be that everyone is uploading all of their photos to iCloud since the Photos app was released.

I’ve had to pause the sync for a day on my wife’s laptop so it wouldn’t bog down our internet. I might have to do the sync at night when everyone and myself is asleep.
