    I recently took a trip and got plenty of pictures from my iphone 4S. Some of them synced to the ipad with photostream, but not all of them. I'm not sure why this happened - but does anyone know how I can induce my ipad to pick these up? They are all connected to wifi and have been charged so I don't see why it's not doing it. I've also tried having the photos app open on both devices. It was working in one of the airports until I had to board a plane, and now 3 days later it still hasn't synced. Thanks.

    Well just as an FYI, videos don't sync with Photostream so those will be missing.

    You can try to reenabling it.

    Go to Settings > iCloud > Photo Stream.

    Turn it off. Restart your phone. Go back and then turn it back on.

    Then take a picture to see if it reinitiates it.
