    I updated my phone to iOS 8.4 and I don't have a Photostream anymore. My pictures, when taken with the iPhone show up on my iPads Photostream, but not the iPhone...I don't even have the folder there. When I take a photo with the iPad, it shows up on my iPad Photostream but nothing on the iPhone. My wife upgraded on her 6 and she has it...

    Any suggestions? I've already done the whole turn the Photostream off, back on in photos and iCloud. Turned the phone off and back on. Made sure the camera app was closed...

    I've attached a photo:

    Backup your iPhone via iTunes. Then try restoring iOS also via iTunes. After that, check if there's that Photostream in Photo app. If there is one, Restore from that backup and you should have all your data + Photostream.

    Hope this helps.

    So you're saying do a factory reset like the phone is new and then restoring from that back up?

    I did a restore from the backup and I can get the photos taken by my phone to stream to my iPad and rMBP. But I can't get photos from the iPad or rMBP to stream to the iPhone...I haven't done the full restore yet...but I'm trying everything I can before taking that on...I'm baffled this time around. Maybe the iPhone just doesn't have a photostream after this latest update?
