How to View Shared Photos on iCloud Photo Sharing on iPhone/iPad

iOS is quite renowned and equally impressive for having almost flawless web integration. Apple’s iCloud service is a great example of this aspect. The iCloud Photo Sharing service lets users create Photo Streams that can then be shared with others. This means that you can not only just store your photos in the cloud, but also create an online album of sorts by simply enabling this iCloud Photo Sharing option on your iPhone or iPad.

Once you have created shared photo stream, you can invite others to your Photo Stream. Similarly, you can also receive invitations to their Photo Streams. Inside the Photos app, you can locate all of these shared streams listed under the shared category. The list will have all of the shared streams including the ones you have created as well as the ones to which you have been invited by others.
