It’s really easy to take pictures with the iPhone 5 camera, and the device is capable of producing some quality images. But this simplicity comes at a price, as you can find yourself with hundreds or thousands of pictures on your camera roll. Many of the pictures you take with the iPhone 5 camera are about 1 MB in size, so 1000 pictures is roughly a GB of space on the device. If you have the 16 GB version of the iPhone 5, then this is a good percentage of the available storage. Fortunately you can delete pictures directly form the iPhone 5, which is a good decision if you need to free up some space on the iPhone 5.
Did you know that you can use your Apple ID on an iPhone and an iPad at the same time? This allows you to use iCloud to share photos between the device with the Photo Stream. If you have been thinking about getting an iPad, check out the prices and reviews on the iPad Mini at Amazon.
