Hey everyone,

I have a quick question. I am currently cleaning up my photos and trying to organize everything by albums. I am doing this using the Desktop Photos app. I have iCloud turned on, however the changes I'm making (creating new albums, deleting certain photos, etc) aren't showing up on my iPhone Photos app.

Is there something I need to do to make sure both are perfectly in sync?

I turned on iCloud syncing this week w 2TB in cloud. It took three and a half days to completely sync my 10.5” iPad Pro, iPhone SE, 17,1 iMac. I thought my battery had stopped working on the 10.5” iPad Pro. But it was completely busy syncing for three plus days.

Syncing in the cloud today is sometimes NOT INSTANT. But it does sync shortly.
