The Photos app on my 128GB iPad Pro consumes 35.54GB on the device. All photos are automatically uploaded and stored in iCloud Photos and I have Optimize iPad Storage turned on.
The Photos app on my 128GB iPhone XR consumes 1.3GB! Again, all photos are automatically uploaded and stored in iCloud Photos and Optimize iPhone Storage is turned on.
Photos consumes 30.7GB in iCloud Storage, less than what’s consumed on my iPad!
All the same photos are available on both devices. So why is there such a stark difference in the amount of storage consumed on the devices? Is there any way to reduce the Photos storage on my iPad, without permanently deleting photos everywhere?
