WWDC brought us an iOS 8 jam packed with new features. While I was initially partial to only to the iMessage changes, the camera and photo updates need a closer look.
One of the major pushes at WWDC was iCloud, which saw some serious changes: adding iCloud Drive, changing sync, and updating iCloud's relationship with Photos. Right now, there is a 1,000 photo limit on iCloud sync. That's going to change.
In iOS 8, it'll be an all encompassing iCloud Photo Library. The photo library will let you either keep your photos on your device locally, or use Photo Stream to wirelessly sync them with your other iCloud-enabled iOS devices.
If you allow your device to enable the library, all of your photos and videos will auto upload to iCloud, where it'll be stored in its original format (JPG, PNG, etc.) Then you'll be able to view them on your other mobile devices and hopefully in the next OS update, on there too. You are going to have to pay for the storage you use: while the first 5 GB is free, the next 20 GB is $1 per month and 200 GB is $4 per month.
There will also be a search field, for date, time, location, or album name. There will also be a 'Favorites' feature. If you press the heart on the photo, it will be added to that library and go into all of your devices as a 'Favorite.'
