Apple has announced that its "My Photo Stream" service will be discontinued, requiring users to switch to iCloud Photos before the shutdown date.

My Photo Stream, a free service, allows users to upload and access their last 30 days' worth of images (up to 1,000) on various Apple devices.

As iCloud Photos has become the preferred option for photo storage and synchronization, Apple aims to streamline its services by encouraging all customers to switch to iCloud Photos.

Starting June 26, 2023, users will no longer be able to upload new photos to My Photo Stream. However, any existing images will remain in iCloud for 30 days until the service is fully terminated.

Apple advises users to save them to the Photo Library on their desired devices before July 26. To do so:

On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

  • Open Photos and tap Albums.
  • Tap My Photo Stream > Select.
  • Tap the photos that you want to save, then tap the Share button  > Save Image.

On your Mac

  • Open the Photos app, then open the My Photo Stream album.
  • Select any photos you want to save that aren't currently in your photo library.
  • Drag them from the My Photo Stream album to your Library.

Apple recommends users also enable iCloud Photos. This feature is available on devices running iOS 8.3 or later for iPhones and iPads, and OS X Yosemite or later for Macs.
