When you say iCloud Photo Library, you are referring to the gallery that will be available throughout your different Apple devices. For example, you would like to access a certain photo from your iPad. You can use the iCloud Photo Library to get that same photo with the use of your other Apple device.

My Photo Stream, on the other hand, is a photo-sharing app. You have to remember that this has been available in the iCloud photo library for a long period of time. The use of these photo libraries can be very effective in making sure that your different cloud−connected devices will be properly supplanted with the photos that you want to access.

A photostream is a centralized place for assigning photos across all your ios devices. Every time you take a picture with your iPhone or iPad or import one into your personal computer, it gets further into your photostream. From there, it starts to appear on all your Apple devices. The photostream is a very outdated photo-sharing app that has long since been supplanted with the iCloud photo library.

The new iCloud photo library is Apple’s solution to delivering a better and more efficient way to control and retrieve all your pictures and videos across all your iOS devices, including Mac, iPad, and iPhone. The idea is to decrease the time you spend on managing your digital memory albums and concentrate on getting more creative. The distinction between the two rests in how the syncing works across both the photo-sharing features. My photostream is Apple’s cloud-based photo-sharing package that stores your current photos in the cloud and synchronizes them across all your cloud-connected devices.
