... than on my iPhone (Beta 2). I've had iCloud Photo Library going on both my Mac and iPhone 6 since well before any Beta's released. Under iCloud Prefs on my Mac it says "Uploading 9,925 items" with the bar underneath totally gray.... While the picture count in Photos on my Mac (All Photos) says I have a total of 10,602 items whereas "All Photos" on my iPhone, also iCloud Photo Library selected in iPhone "iCloud" Prefs... says I have only 1,308 photos. All of the other 'Albums' on the iPhone have hardly any photos in them or none at all. Been that way for a long time.

Any suggestions? Just be patient and wait for final release? Others experiencing same differences?

Thank you!

You have phantom photos-- (photos that haven't actually been deleted from your iCloud Photo Library.)

The only way to get rid of it is to go on your mac, trash your photos library folder and enable iCloud Photo Library on your new library and let the mac download all the phantom photos back to your mac, then you reupload the phantom photos back to iCloud until they are fully uploaded, then delete them again.

Next time you manage/delete your photos, wait until all photos upload to iCloud before you get rid of them

I should Trash my photos library folder now even though my iCloud Tab in Photos Prefs says it is "Uploading (now) 9581 Items (789.9 MB or 13.89 GB)"?
