The one thing nice about the iPhone X's Plus is that you'll be taking more pictures. Pretty soon you may find that you have way more pictures on your phone than ever before. Automatically backing up the pictures to a cloud service is helpful to manage space on the phone.
For years I have been using Google Photos for my photos and video backups. It's still an important part of my iPhone backup strategy. It's a good source to use to backup photos whenever the iPhone is charging. You don't have to think about it - just enable back up and let it run.
Here's what you get if you use the High Quality option - otherwise known as free storage option:
Press and hold the icon for the 3D Touch Menu
Did you know that there are some options when you hold down the icon for the 3D Touch? You can:
I'm feeling lucky - Perform a random search of your photo collection, such as a random location or object. Kind of fun way to check out your photo collection.
Free up space - Remove photos from your phone that has been back up to Google Photos. Useful when your on vacation and need the space.
Make Shared album - Quick way to launch Google Photos app and start selecting photos to share. Useful when you take a bunch of recent photos and want to share them.
Share Google Photos - Shares your love of Google Photos with another iPhone User. Make it easy for others to download the Google Photos application.
