    How do I download photos from iCloud? Do I have to restore the whole phone or can I just download the photos?

    Do you still have the iPhone 4? If so, just toggle on iCloud Photo Library (Beta) om under photos in iCloud on the 4. Then you just do the same on your new phone and they will show up.

    I've got the 4 but can't find what you are referencing.

    It may be limited to the newer iPhones. Do you see that setting on your 6+?

    Do you have a Mac or a PC? Are you certain they are already in iCloud? If they are already in iCloud, you should be able to access them through your photo stream.

    Ok now I've discovered the 4 is not transferring photos to iCloud. All other info transferred. Photos is turned on in iCloud settings. Any ideas what the problem might be?

    Log out of iCloud on the phone and then log back in and follow these steps.

    That didn't work as my friend had never backed up the 4. Only choices were to set up as new phone or restore from backup which she didn't have. Anyway I appreciate the help as always. I did find an app...Simple Transfer that worked. Success!!!
