How do photos taken with iPhone magically appear on iPad, or not

There seems to be no rhyme or reason as to how photos appear on my iPad. I thought I figured out that my phone needed to pick up a wifi signal, and it doesn't do that if I charge it downstairs. I specifically plugged it in upstairs Sunday, because it will be easier to show Mom pictures of our new abode if they flow through to the iPad, but no luck. And I swear the phone was never plugged in upstairs the time prior, yet there they were on the iPad.

iCloud storage. Your iPhone will upload the new photos to iCloud, then the iPad will download the new photos.

You have some control over how photos sync via the Settings | Photos area. For example, we have unlimited data via T-Mobile so I have my phone set to allow unlimited cellular data photo sync - so I don’t have to wait for a WiFi connection to sync new photos up to iCloud.

It works on Amazon Photos too. I notice the transfers when my phone/Kindle/laptop are on the same wi-fi network. Like magic. The only glitch- probably between my ears- is that if I try to post a picture to TUG from my phone, I get an error, 'file too big', so I just wait until it has transferred to the Amazon cloud and post it from my Kindle. Maybe not pretty, but it works.

Google photos works well also. It syncs to all of our iPhones and iPads.

Or Google Photos or any number of cloud storage systems. Just need to have the same app on both

Rick's ipad rings when his phone rings. How does that happen?

You can enable that on your iPhone under settings. Look up Phone, Calls, Calls on Other Devices. As long as they are on WiFi, incoming calls will ring on both devices. You can also make calls on the iPad from the Contacts list.

Still unsure why the photos sometimes cross over and sometimes not. Suspect maybe storage is full, I don't know nothin' 'bout making more available and don't want to deal with it while do a million other things to get house ready to sell. Did sit with ipad and delete a couple dozen photos just now, if only to have an excuse to rest my weary, and exceedingly sweaty, bones. Cliff had the good fortune of having to leave for a family funeral in the Dallas area Monday, leaving me to obsess on my own until tomorrow afternoon.

Under Settings - click on the first item listed - which is your Apple ID settings. From there - click on iCloud. The first item displayed is your storage usage. If you don’t have enough iCloud storage and want to increase it via a paid plan - choose Manage Storage | Change Storage Plan. I subscribe to the 50GB plan for a buck a month and currently use about 25GB.

Thanks for that. Phone says 941.7 of 5 GB used. Should be tons of space? Or maybe 9 year old ipad has less space? Will look when I am back upstairs.
