    Apple will permanently delete an entire photo album from your iPhone next month, but thankfully there’s an easy way to save the contents from being lost forever.

    The tech giant has announced it’s retiring My Photo Stream, an album that automatically stores your snaps from the last 30 days.

    As part of the shutdown, My Photo Stream stopped uploading snaps on June 26 and everything in it will be lost when the album gets deleted on July 26.

    If you’re an iPhone user, you’re urged to go on My Photo Stream – which is accessible through the Photos app – and save the contents to your device.

    My Photo Stream has offered free storage for over a decade and an alternative to iCloud Photos, which just got more expensive in the UK and other countries.

    ‘If a photo you want isn’t already in your library on a particular iPhone, iPad, or Mac, make sure that you save it to your library on that device.’
