More Disappearing Apple Features: Reset Photo Stream


We just got done telling you about Apple’s recent legal issues that have led to the company deciding to remove some functionality from VPN On Demand in iOS. As it turns out, that’s not the only place where Apple’s been taking some features away from users, as it now appears that you can no longer reset your Photo Stream from iCloud.

Photo Stream is largely automatic, but if you wanted to take more control over your recent pictures showing up there, Apple offered a feature accessible through its iCloud website that would let you lay waste to the lot of it, and clear all images from your Photo Stream. We told you about this ability back in the fall of 2011, and it had been around ever since. At least, it had been up until recently, and now users are reporting that the option is suspiciously absent.

Now sure, you can always pull individual photos, but this all-at-once was a nice option to have. There’s no word yet on why Apple might have yanked the feature, so this very well could be an oversight.
