    2 questions:

    I thought that if you saved an article on one device it would show up on all devices (iPhone, macbook pro, iPad), but i haven't seen this work yet. I've saved a story on my computer, didn't show up on iPhone's reading list and vice versa. Did i misunderstand this feature?

    iCloud storage and camera roll. I have 5.6g of photos on my iPhone, i thought that photos and music didn't count towards your storage in iCloud.

    am i totally making up things here? any help is appreciated.

    Your understanding of how it works is correct. Do you have bookmark syncing enabled in iCloud on both your Mac and your iPhone? If so, it should work.

    Maybe there's a bit of lag at the moment with it being new and everybody setting it up.

    Purchased music, books, apps and your photo stream do not count against your 5G cap. Mail, documents, Camera Roll, account information, settings, and other app data do.

    Reading list is list a bookmark with no saved iCloud storage, so it won't count.
