    My 6s only is a 16g so gets filled rather quick. Is there a way I can take a pic, upload it to my iCloud account then delete it just off my phone only but is kept in cloud?
    I'm going on vacation next week and will be taking a lot of pics.
    Thanks

    I do this with OneDrive (I have a free 1TB storage with my MS Office subscription). If I delete a photo, the OneDrive copy stays there.

    I did a test using my Google Drive then deleted pics from phone and worked perfectly

    Google services are pretty good with this. Shame Apple doesn't let you have the option to do something similar with iCloud.

    Agree with all the responses here, Google Drive, OneDrive or Dropbox would be the way to go! :)

    Free iCloud storage is also limited. You can just delete the photos from your iPhone and backup the photos on your computer.
    It's really easy to do this.
