Photo Stream iOS 5 | How to Delete Photos from iCloud Photo Stream in iOS 5 or Disable It [Tip]


Newly released iCloud service offers a wide array of features that can come really handy to save time when backing up or syncing your iOS 5 data. One of the most useful features that are introduced in iOS 5 is the ability to steam the photos that you capture on your iPhone seamlessly to the iCloud without any manual intervention. In other words, as soon as you snap some photos on your device they are automatically synced to the iCloud and from there pushed to all other devices for your access such as desktop PC or an iPad.

But the simplicity of this streaming photos to the iCloud feature also brings some usability issues such as what to do if you have some private photos that you don’t want to sync/stream with the iCloud? Ok there is always some way around. Here is quick procedure on how to remove the photos stream from iCloud.

Step 1) First go to the on your iOS 5 device.

Step 2) Now open the iCloud settings.

Step 3) Now you will see the Photo Stream toggle – tap on it to turn it off that will delete all photo stream photos!

Step 4) Tap on it again to re-enable the photo stream.

In fact, this is not the only method to delete the photos from your iCloud photo stream as you can also Login to using your Apple ID and password and then delete the photos from the photo stream from the Advanced in Profile settings by selecting “Reset Photo Stream” option.

Keep in mind that regardless of the settings in iOS 5 Apple will automatically remove photos from your photo stream after 30 days as well as after you hit the 1,000 photos. Another point is unfortunately for now there is no way that you can remove individual photos from the photo stream but hopefully Apple will remove this limitation in the future.
