Announced at this mornings Google+ event, Google+ for iOS is in line to get pretty substantial update for those of us who use the service for backing up our photos. Thanks to iOS 7, Google+ will soon be able to auto sync your photos in the background, instead of needing to have the app open as is currently required.

Better still, iOS Google+ users will soon be on a par with their Android cousins, with the ability to upload full resolution images. Currently, a scaled down version of your photos gets uploaded, but all that is set to change in the next update. This in particular is a welcome addition, after all, why would you want to share scaled down photos shot with the impressive camera on the new iPhone 5s?

So, Google+ users; happy with this? I know I am, let me know what you think of it!
