Does anyone know what happened to the ADVANCED option on iCloud.com? I cannot delete my photo stream since Apple has removed that option and replaced it with NOTIFICATIONS.

    It's not known why this is, whether it's simply a mistake and will be brought back or whether it's gone for good. You can however do the same thing by deleting all your photostream photos on one of your devices.

    No, not at all. Deleting photos from photostream on any device deletes them from every device and from iCloud. If that doesn't happen for you then you are doing something wrong.

    You can disagree all you want, but I won't be taking any notice of your theory until you explain the warning in the image below.

    Perhaps you were unaware, typing in capitals is considered shouting, I was responding in the same tone. I shall assume you were unaware and am happy to draw a line under that matter.

     

    It doesn't work the way you suggest it does, try it and see.

     

    The whole purpose of photostream is that what ever is done on one device is repeated across all others.

     

    You might also wish to read the section 'How do I delete photos from my photostream' in the following article.

    Winston Churchill is quite correct.  As for the reset photostream, I never understood its function.  Why would you want to remove all your images from photostream in the first place?  It's like removing all your contacts or calendars -- there is no option for that in iCloud. 

     

    If you no longer wish to receive photostream on a device, simply remove photostream in settings > iCloud.  If you wish to remove a single photo or several, just remove them from your device.

     

    @Winston Churchill:  I hope you will not consider this a breach of your privacy, it was not so intended; but I had to smile at the 'bathroom Apple TV'.  I never considered an AppleTV might serve a function there!

    It's not a problem, indeed it's helpful, I'm aware it looks as though I'm here to argue, I just don't want others to get wrong information, it helps when others give their opinion.

     

    The bathroom TV, is a TV manufactured for a bathroom, it's a sealed unit, it meets all regulations and sits in the wall where it can be easily viewed while soaking in the tub. The Apple TV is also in the wall and is controlled by our phones, it's connected to an amplifier which is situated in the garage which in turn is connected to waterproof speakers in the bathroom ceiling. I did it all myself and am quite pleased with it.
