Posted by Aimee , Dec 18, 2019

"I'm having a problem with iCloud photos. I enabled the space optimization option on the "Photos & Camera" app. I have 200GB of iCloud space, which is enough for me to download all pictures to the iPad Pro. When loading iCloud photos, the resolution of these pictures is very fuzzy or a "!" symbol appears. Obviously, the synchronization was not successful. If I do other operations, an error will be prompted. This is too annoying. I am trying some methods mentioned in PCMag. Who else can provide more ideas? "
iCloud can safely store your data and help you sync everything (contacts, pictures, messages, etc.) to different iOS devices.
