Icloud Photo Library Upload Stuck Mac

So, my iCloud Photo Library has been stuck on 1% for over 3 months now.

  1. Upload Photos To Icloud From Iphone
  2. Manually Upload Photos To Icloud
  3. Why Is My Icloud Photo Library Not Syncing

The iPhone storage on the phone is 64 GB, and it says 21,6 GB of that is being used.

  1. ICloud Photo Library stuck on uploading I turned iCloud Photo Library on and tried to upload it, even left it overnight thinking it'll be done. Well, it wasn't. I googled and it turns out, I have to leave the photos app opened so that it can upload the photos (how retarded is that?).
  2. When you turn on iCloud Photos, your photos and videos automatically upload to iCloud. They're not duplicated in your iCloud backup, so you should keep backup copies of your library. Use the steps below to download copies of your photos and videos to your Mac or PC. Or you can import your library to your Mac or PC.

Tap your account name/Apple ID. Toggle Off iCloud Photo Library. Restart your device. Follow the same path and re-enable iCloud Photo Library. If even that fell short and your photos just won’t upload to iCloud Photo Library, there are additional steps you should take into consideration.

My iCloud storage is 2TB, and it says 13,1 GB of that is being used. This is after I've deleted almost all my apps, the only ones remaining are the ones that can't be deleted, and Messenger, Notes, Calendar and Contacts.

When this all started I was getting these two messages:

1) 'Storage Almost Full, you can manage your storage in Settings' and

2)'Not Enough Storage...' with the options 'Close' and 'Upgrade Storage', at which point I upgraded my iCloud storage to the 2TB I now have.

The very first thing I tried was the good old 'turn it off and on again', nothing changed.

In Settings > My name > iCloud > Photos, I have 'iCloud Photo Library' and 'Upload to My Photo Stream' on. I've tried turning these off and on again too, without results.

I cannot delete any of my pictures or videos from my phone. When I try, they only reappear again a minute or so later. I can’t take pictures or videos, if I try my phone freezes and I occasionally have to restart it.

WhyUploading photos to icloud from pc

I don't have a Mac, I recently had to buy a new computer, so I'm using iTunes on an Asus. I've logged into iCloud via my computer, but none of the pictures and videos I have on my phone can be found anywhere in my iCloud Photos.

In Settings > My name > iCloud, I've currently turned iCloud Backup off to see if that changes anything, but it hasn't, so I'm planning to turn it on again after I've posted this.

In Settings > General > Reset, I've tried 'Reset All Settings', which didn't change much at all.

I've yet to try 'Erase All Content and Settings' because I'm afraid that'd make me lose all my pictures, videos, contacts, notes and text messages I need to keep for informational purposes.

I've done one backup via iTunes on my new computer. I regularly did backups on my old Mac, but it crashed last December and is unsalvageable (I got some help on the Apple forums with it, but nothing more could be done).

I think I've listed everything I've experienced and done so far. Anyone got any suggestions whatsoever of what I can do to fix this issue, without having to “Erase All Content and Settings”? I’m saving that as the absolute last resort.

Manually Upload Photos To Icloud

This is the second time i'm asking this question. i have a iPhone 6 which runs iOS 9.3.2. For the past 3 months uploading to icloud photo library has been stuck. it says it needs an internet connection and when it's available nothing happens. once I turned off and turned it back on, and all my photos except photos from last 6 months were deleted from the storage and it uploaded the recent ones. That was the last time something like that happened. i'm not doing that again beacuse i cant loose my photos again.(luckily they were all uploaded to icloud). I need a solution fast because im running out of storage. I can do nothing. i didn't access to my camera or install any app since may-2016. please give me a permanent solution for this.



Why Is My Icloud Photo Library Not Syncing

its a shame that this kind of thing happens in the worlds best smartphone software. I've been a huge follower of apple and their invention since 2007. This is the first time I had huge problem like this.
