Facebook is looking to up the ante on uploading photos from your Apple gadgets and has rolled out a trial of its new Photo Sync feature.

The feature allows users to sync the photos saved on their phone to their Facebook profile. No more fiddling with uploading picture after picture.

There is also a safeguard feature for this that prevents private photos from being seen by the public. The synced images are saved to a private part of your Facebook photos section, so even if a private photo manages to wind up on Facebook, it won’t be seen by anyone else until you approve it.

This provides the freedom to decide which photos to share and which to keep, and the company says you can do this from desktop, mobile or other devices.

You can also sync photos automatically after you take them or you can opt to wait for a WiFi connection. You can also turn Photo Sync off entirely.

In order to try out the feature, you’ll need to have the most recent version of the Facebook iOS app and your device needs to be running iOS 6.

To check if you're one of the few users currently able to test the feature, open the Facebook app, load the left-sided list menu, scroll down to Apps and select Photos. If you see 'Sync' at the bottom of the page, it can be enabled.

No date has been given for when it will launch for the rest of the Facebook iOS users.
