During an event today to announce changes coming to Google+, Google did have a bit of news for users of their social network with iOS devices. It was announced that the next update to Google+ for iOS will feature background sync for photos, including full-sized photo backups.

The announcement has generated a bit of confusion. Google said challenges presented in iOS had previously only made it possible to sync photos taken with an iPhone or iPad’s camera while the G+ app was open. However, the iOS app has featured an “Auto Backup” setting for several versions. Perhaps Google was referring to backing up full-sized photos in the background.

Either way, expect a new version of Google+ for iOS in the coming days.

Regardless of public opinion, don’t expect G+ to go anywhere anytime soon. [More]
