Hi All,
So I now have iOS 8 on my iPhone 6 & Retina iPad Mini, and the photos app is really confusing me, I understand camera roll has been changed to recently added but I also have some photos from a holiday album which is on my iPad on my iPhone? Why? How do I have the same photos on my iPad and iPhone with iCloud? The whole app is just a tad confusing to me! Anyone help me out?

Cheers

My best guess is that if you restored from a backup, you'd see the same pictures that were on the device from which the backup originated.

Or there may just be a bug where Apple shows iCloud Photo Library as off when it's actually on.

Oh ok, I didn't restore from a backup though
