    Long story short.

    Upgraded iPhone 6 Plus to 6s Plus, took it out shooting for a weekend. Then came back and the iPhone is constantly uploading the photos onto iCloud. This I don't mind, however it is saturating all of my upload speeds.

    I'm on a 50MBps down 10Mbps up connection.

    It will literally make my net unusable when it's uploading, so I end up leaving the phone on airplane mode or turn off wifi completely to get around this.

    I have tried leaving the phone on wifi overnight to upload, however it doesn't seem to want to do that.

    So how can I limit the speed for the iCloud Photo uploads?

    If your router supports the QOS function, you can try enabling QOS and setting the parameters accordingly. Other suggestions, put the iphone on a 2.4 ghz channel if it is not already and limit the channel to a slow speed such as 54. Other than that there are no settings on the phone. If you have an ac router, I would set the ssid to a 5ghz ac channel and let the phone finish the job as quickly as possible.
