There are a number of reasons why you may want to cancel Photo Stream, whether it’s a space issue on your iPad or iPhone, or just an urge to set the system up again with fresh snaps. The only way to reset the system is to go to the heart of iCloud – Here you need to log in and then access your account information. From here you can reset the stream. Apple has made the OFF switch online so that you can access the controls from anywhere. So if your iPhone, iPad or Mac is stolen, you can wipe the personal information in the stream using this reset technique. In order to have the change filter through to your hand-helds, you’ll need to turn the stream off in their settings, too.
