Do you mean by "supported up to iCloud" you use iCloud photo library?  In this case, meeting of the iPad will remove the iCloud way photo. iCloud library updates the changes to the devices. If you remove apt on a single device, the deletion will be synchronized to iCloud and from there to all devices.

To save storage on your new iPad turn on "Optimize storage" in the settings to iCloud.  Then the original high-resolution photos will be replaced with smaller versions on your iPad, and if you need a photo for editing or sharing full version must be downloaded from iCloud.

  • How do I delete photos from my phone but keep them in my Mac?


    I have my phone set up to use iCloud for photo only stream. When in range, I can see the latest pictures in my Mac photo stream. I want to be able to save some of these images immediately in my iPhoto and delete them from my phone. How to achieve this?

    That's what I tried:

    1. create an album and do drag the photos chosen there.

    2 go to remove them.

    Result: Images are not created album.

    My solution: get BAC "recently deleted".

    Result: Photos reappears in the album and are erased from the photo stream

    Last step: drag the album in iPhoto events

    My approach seems to be too many steps for something that should be simple, and something tells me that even this approach could not accomplish what I intend to do. Please notify. I will appreciate your comments.

    Something isn't here...

    1. Please all first confirm if the application that you are using on iPhone and Mac's iPhoto or Photos.

    2. Please confirm if iCloud library is enabled.

    If the applications are Photos and iCPL is enabled, that would explain the behavior you're seeing.
