    Hi everyone. My issue here is that I may just not know what I'm talking about, or don't "get" things, but...

    Using a regular web-browser on icloud.com, then going into iCloud Drive, I uploaded some pictures into the "Preview" folder. Those pictures don't show up in Photos on my iPhone. So, am I correct in assuming that iCloud Drive and Photo Stream are two different things?

    Is there any way to view iCloud Drive items on an iOS device (I know I can on Yosemite)?

    Is it functionality that's coming soon? Is it even planned?

    This whole "everything, everywhere, every device" seems to be falling short unless I just have it all wrong. So if someone can remove the clouds (pun intended) from my view, I'd appreciate it :)

    I'm pretty sure to view files on an iOS device, the app must specifically plug into iCloud Drive file types. I don't think just uploading random photos to iCloud Drive on the website will place it in the photos container.
