Wife and I bought our iPhone 5's back in April. As a personal decision, we do not keep emails, messages or pictures/movies on our phones. We download them and or delete them, but store nothing on them. We also do NOT use iCloud services ... or so we thought. This month I noticed the PhotoStream tab under the Photos app. I clicked it and was stunned to see every picture and video I created since April was there. I noticed I could delete them, but I was more concerned this content was now in Apple's iCloud--something I didn't want. Under Settings>General>Photos I found where to disable this somehow enabled option and it prompted me if I wished to delete the content. I chose to delete it, and concluded iCloud's PhotoStream kept copies in Apple's cloud. I went to my wife's phone and sure enough all photo and video content I created locally on my phone had been copied to her phone as well. I disabled the option on her phone, accepted the prompted deletion offering and figured that was it. Our 1st gen iPad doesn't have this option even though it is running iOS6. Our third gen iPad was found with the service already disabled. My concern is the intrusive nature of Apple. I no more think my content is gone from Apple's iCloud than can be safely proven. I'm guessing I could test this by re-enabling the option on a phone, but how can I remove it permanently from the cloud? BTW, these iPhone 5's are our first and last ones since the wife is upset over this.
