The major limitations of this iCloud Photo Stream solution.
1.The upper bound of photos
You can transfer no more than 1000 photos once at a time, because the iCloud can not hold the 1001th photo. So it is important that you check the transfer results, or you are going to lose the rest of photos for ever.
2. No more than 30 days
Photos that saved in the Photo Stream will be deleted automatically after 30 days. Remember to get them before that.
3. Smaller than 5 GB storage
The maximum of the storage space on iCloud is 5 GB. If it is full, you are not allowed to add any photos to it. And it is really a small storage space for people with a large photo library.
4.Videos are not allowed
It means you can not transfer videos in this way.
Luckily, all the four limitations do not exist in the iSkysoft Phone Transfer for Mac & Windows, which aims to meet all the need of its users and offer an even greater user experience for them. Just have a try!
