Yes, tagged Faces do sync to your iPhone, iPad, and Mac — if you know where to look

Even though Photos for iOS doesn't offer a Faces album, you can still find tagged friends using the search field.

I recently wrote a post on getting Faces to sync between multiple computers when you're using iCloud Photo Library, and mentioned — sadly — that there was no efficient way to sync the work-around to iOS. And this remains true... technically.

It turns out that even though Apple doesn't officially sync the Faces album from Photos for OS X using iCloud Photo Library, you can still find any tagged photos of a person — no matter what computer you tagged them on — by searching their name.

How to delete old iCloud backups on iPhone and iPad

Old iCloud backups can eat up a tremendous amount of storage space in your iCloud account.

Deleting old ones from time to time is a great way to free up some extra space for other things. In my experience, a lot of folks don't realize there are old backups stored in iCloud they may not need. This typically happens if you upgrade from one device to another. Since iCloud stores backups based on device ID, you may end up with a duplicate backup. Luckily, managing and deleting iCloud backups is super simple!

How to use iCloud's Family Sharing with Photos for OS X

You can't sync your entire iCloud Photo Library with your family, but you can still share images with them.

While iCloud Photo Library supports syncing your photos, videos, and albums across your own personal devices, it doesn't offer an option to sync everything to a family member's device: After all, do you really want to share every photo or video you've ever taken with your family? Probably not.

As such, if you have Family Sharing enabled, you'll still have your own Photos library. But that doesn't mean you can't still share images with each other easily. Here are three options I've been using to keep my family in the loop.
