  • To upload multiple photos at once, simply tap on each one at a time.
  • Upload by pressing the Upload button.


  • Your Google Drive account will now be updated with the new images.

Can I use Google Drive to store all of my photos?

Definitely, but there are a few things to keep in mind first.
Storage considerations. Free storage space on Google Drive is limited to 15GB. Many people’s photo collections will be much larger than that. iOS users may prefer to pay for iCloud storage rather than purchase additional storage. Weighing your options is a smart move.
It will take some time before you see the results. When uploading a large photo collection, expect the process to take some time. Uploading photos via cellular data is not recommended; instead, use Wi-Fi to connect your phone to the internet.
Using Google Photos is a good idea. There are many advantages to using Google Photos, rather than manually uploading all of your photos and videos.
A Google account is required. Google accounts aren’t available to everyone. If you don’t already have a Google account, you’ll need to sign up for one to use Google Drive or Google Photos.

How do I use Google Drive to store a backup of my iPhone?

The Google Drive app for Mac must be downloaded and installed before using Google Drive on a Mac. You can access your Google Drive files from any of your other devices by putting them in this folder.

My Google Drive on my iPhone is full of files that I’d like to remove.
