Well done Apple, over the years you have added new functionality (some of them good) and removed others which have been controversial. I once loved your eco-system but now I sit here with my iPhone constantly full, iCloud constantly full with you trying to make me pay to upgrade my storage options and i now can't update my phone because of it. In fact I never know where I stand with the Apple photo syncing. Some things are automated? Some are still manual? Photos can be in the cloud, but be careful if they haven't properly synced to the Mac yet! All i want is to have my photos that i take on my phone sync to my computer when I plug it in and let me delete out the old (sync'd) photos to clear out space. I don't sync my photos back from my Mac, I just want them off the phone and off iCloud. Why can't i delete my sync'd photos off my phone!
