Photo Stream was introduced in iOS 5. The process allows you to take a picture with your iOS device and immediately share that photo with your other devices and computers via iCloud.
Apple describes the process as follows: “iCloud automatically pushes a copy of that photo over any available Wi-Fi or Ethernet connection to the Photos app on your iOS devices, iPhoto or Aperture on your Mac, and the Pictures Library on your PC. You can even view your Photo Stream album on your Apple TV. So you can show off your shots to friends and family from whichever device you’re using at the time.”
However, until the recent update to iOS 5.1, once you took a photo, you could not delete it from Photo Stream without various hacks or quirky steps.
To update Aperture, run software update.
