  1. On your iPhone, go to Settings, then tap on your name at the top of the screen.
  2. Select iCloud, then choose Photos.
  3. Make sure that both “iCloud Photos” and “Download and Keep Originals” are turned on.
  4. On your Mac, open the Photos app and sign in with the same Apple ID as your iPhone.
