    Noticed about an hour ago that my photostream is not working on iPad nor iPhone. Take a pic, shows in camera roll but not in photostream.

    Both devices on wifi. Take a pic with iPhone and not showing up in iPhones photostream as well.

    Did a hard reboot on both devices.
    Still same issue.

    Anyone else?

    Are both devices signed onto the same AppleID for photo stream ?

    may sound daft but on the devices have you also checked photostream is on in the icloud settings?

    I noticed this morning that I had duplicates in Photostream of pix I took yesterday. Maybe there was a glitch of some sort, because otherwise, all OK.

    today, i'm finding that photos are uploaded to photostream on the iphone, but they are not showing up on the photostream in iPhoto.

    Will try that tonight. MBP has been off since the iPad arrival.

    Thanks for the respond.

    Just read in an apple support thread about this issue that the iDevices need to be above 20% charge for
    Photostream to function properly.

    My iPad has been below 20% last night. Maybe that's what the issue is.

    I am having an issue with Photostream also. Pictures taken on the iphone go to the ipad okay but are not making it to the PC. I bunch of old pictures are there but new ones are not being pushed down to the PC. It was working fine until a few weeks ago. Photostream is on on all of the devices. The pictures show up in photostream album on the phone and the ipad but don't get to the PC. Very strange and very frustrating for my wife. Should work but has just stopped. I am afraid to try anything too dramatic. If you reset in iCloud it sounds like you could lose a bunch of pictures. If I log out of iCloud on the PC it sounds like I could lose calendar, contacts and all kinds of useful info. Don't want to have any of that stuff happen.

    Thanks for any help you can offer. All are on the same iCloud id. All devices have been in wifi network together and all have been at well over 20% charge since the pictures were taken. They are moving between the iOS devices but not to the PC.

    I believe it's a flaw, this happens a lot to me and now just turn off photostream all together, find it utterly useless.

    If you want to transfer pics across devices use photsync app or get a Dropbox account, makes life easier.

    Hopefully ios6 will address this issue and the 1000 pic limit issue as well.

    Cheers
