    Hi folks,

    I use iPhone 6s 16gb. I use google photos to backup my pics. Is there any way where I can push the pics from my device to google and the sync photos shall get erased from my phone. Please help.

    You mean other than using the provided "Free up space" option in the menu?

    No. Google apps will not delete the pics that are stored in the device after sync.

    Is it really that hard to hit the "Free up space" button..? That will do exactly what you are asking for.

    Google Photos is nothing to do with iCloud so no it won't.

    Except that it will, of course. That's what the option I referenced, on the application's main menu, will do.

    Whether or not deleting pictures from the phone will remove them from (I presume) iCloud Photo Library has nothing to do with Google Photos and everything to do with however you might be using iCloud Photo Library.

    Why you'd be bothering with iCloud Photo Library when you're using Google Photos, I have no idea...
