    Hi everyone - I did a clean install when iOS 7 came out and did not sync my photos or anything else. Well fast forward a year and now I'd like to have all those pictures/videos back on my phone's camera roll.

    How would I go about this? I have a brand new backup since I did a clean install and it currently contains all my recent photos/videos, apps, etc. The goal is to have all photos/videos from last year's backup into my new backup without losing any of my recent stuff.

    Any help is appreciated -

    If you have a Mac and compatible iPhone, AirDrop your pictures to the iPhone. You can send a maximum of 99 at a time.

    Photostream also uploads photos to the cloud (from both Mac and PC) and then you may download them to your Camera Roll.

    Edit: You'll need to install the iCloud Control Panel.

    Would location services related to photos be retained by using this? How about chronologically placing photos in conjunction with my current photos on my phone?

    Thanks -

    I've synced a lot of old pictures and videos to my 6 but cannot delete the ones I don't want. I hate this feature on IOS. Why can't we delete the pics that we bloody want?

    Will "photosync" allow me to do this? Advices appreciated Guys.
