Apple has announced that it will be shutting down its My Photo Stream service on July 26, 2023. My Photo Stream is a free service that allows users to automatically sync up to 1000 of their recent photos across all of their Apple devices, including iPhones, iPads, and Macs.

In an email to users, Apple said that the decision to shut down My Photo Stream was made in order to focus on its more advanced iCloud Photos service. iCloud Photos offers a number of features that My Photo Stream does not, such as the ability to store unlimited photos and videos, edit photos directly in iCloud, and share photos with others.

Apple is encouraging users to transition to iCloud Photos before the My Photo Stream service is shut down. To do this, users can simply turn on iCloud Photos in the Settings app on their devices. Once iCloud Photos is turned on, all of the photos in My Photo Stream will be automatically uploaded to iCloud.

Users who have photos in My Photo Stream that they do not want to upload to iCloud can download them to their devices before the service is shut down. To do this, users can open the My Photo Stream album in the Photos app and tap the Download button next to each photo that they want to download.

The My Photo Stream service will be shut down on July 26, 2023. After this date, users will no longer be able to access their photos in My Photo Stream.

Here are some tips for transitioning to iCloud Photos:

  • Turn on iCloud Photos in the Settings app on your devices.
  • Wait for all of your photos to upload to iCloud.
  • Delete the My Photo Stream album from the Photos app.
  • Download any photos from My Photo Stream that you do not want to upload to iCloud.

If you have any questions about transitioning to iCloud Photos, you can contact Apple support.
