    I followed the instructions here:
    https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204264

    iPhone says "uploading 1,269 items". The number never changes. No pictures are appearing in iCloud.

    I am connected to Wi-Fi and to power. Model is iPhone 6S and is updated to the latest iOS.

    I searched for solutions to this problem and so far I've tried (with no success):
    • Restarting the iPhone
    • Making sure the Photos app is open
    • Turning off iCloud Photo Library and then on again
    • Connecting to a different Wi-Fi network
    • Waiting a few hours
    • Checking iCloud free space (all 5GB are available--it is empty)
    The number (1,269 items) does not change. Also, the "pause uploading" feature described in the Apple support article is not present.

    Any other ideas?

    I think it's a bug. I noticed this as well. That's why I am trying to copy my photos to my PC, but that's become buggy too.

    Just let it go over night. Upload speed is always slow. If you have a video that's a few hundred Mb or the like it can take a while to upload. Slow-mo videos are also really large files.

    Hey, I'm having the same exact problem with my dad's phone, did you manage to find a way to upload them after all?
