What is iCloud?
We can think of iCloud as our assistant on the internet or in the cloud. iCloud keeps our content in the cloud for us, and transmits it to all our devices wirelessly. It automatically loads, stores, and transmits information for all of our devices.
For example, a photo I took with my iPhone is sent to iCloud before doing anything, and iCloud is sending this photo to Mac, iPod and iPad and Apple TV. So when I get home, I can see all the pictures I took on my other devices without doing anything It’s that simple!
Of course iCloud is much more than this:
- Email, Calendar, Address Book
- Photo Broadcast
- Applications, Books and Backups
- “Find My iPhone” and ”Find My Friends“
We’re going to iCloud.com and logging in with our Apple ID to fully activate iCloud.
After this stage, we are starting to use iCloud according to our settings. The pictures we take are shared under a photo stream, our documents are transferred to all devices, our iOS devices are being backed up and many more..
As I mentioned at the beginning, we do nothing to use iCloud. We’re just making settings from our devices, and iCloud does the rest of all!
What does iCloud do?
iCloud is not just a system that you back up your standard information in cloud storage. The most advanced ecosystem stands out as a cloud storage service.
For example, the 1.7 GB Asphalt 7 game you downloaded to the iPhone does not back up all of the files to the cloud. Just backing up the game recording files. So when you switch to another iOS device, you can resume the game after the synchronization.
Use iTunes with iCloud!
iOS users can back up their data to iTunes. But you need a computer to do this. iCloud is saving you from iTunes and any computer requirements.
What’s backed up with iCloud?
When you open an Apple iCloud account; mail, contact list, calendars, reminders, Safari data (frequently entered pages, favorites, etc.), recording files of games and programs, Passbook information, photos and notes, such as many information you can back up. You can also choose what needs to be backed up to iCloud by going to the iCloud tab.
Thanks to the synchronization of the photo feed; On different devices such as iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone, you can use the same photos without unnecessary data, not different phoxtos.
How much space do you have on iCloud?
You can activate this feature in the Settings, Storage and Backup section of your iOS operating system with the iCloud option.
