iCloud is a cloud service provided by Apple and is currently one of the best in the market . The cloud service works best when used with Apple products, such as the iPhone, iPAD and Mac. It can be used on a Windows PC as well, with most features still intact. iCloud is a one of a kind cloud, as it can synchronize multiple devices easily. With a few clicks, iPhone, iPad and Mac owners can setup iCloud.
iCloud stores the most important files that are on your device on a cloud. By activating the iCloud on other devices, you can synchronize all devices that you own, through your Apple ID. You can create an Apple ID when you activate iCloud if you don’t have one.
What are the system requirements?
You need an Apple product such as an iPhone, iPad or Mac to use it. Before getting iCloud, make sure that you have the latest version of iOS or OS X. For iPhones and IPads, iCloud is very simple to activate. You need to go into the general setting of your device to update the operating system. The setup assistance will automatically guide you after the update and you will setup iCloud if you follow all instructions properly.
iCloud has to be installed on Windows PC. You can install iCloud just like you would install any other software. You will only need to download the setup file from Apple. Follow the installation wizard and select all the features that you intend to use during installation.
For OS X, go to system preferences present in your Apple menu. iCloud should be available if you are running the latest version of OS X.
How to download my stuff?
All of your music files and apps will be accessible from any Apple device you use through your Apple ID. iCloud is great for synchronizing apps and music that you purchase. You won’t have to transfer your files manually from one place to another.
Use your Apple ID associated with the stuff you want to download. After selecting iCloud, go to the App Store and hit updates. Click on purchased and hit ‘not on this device/phone’. You will see a list of apps that you purchased, but none of them will be on the device. You can hit the download button right next to them to begin downloading.
The steps for downloading music from iTunes are similar, except you need to go to iTunes and not the App Store.
Why we recommend iCloud?
iCloud is not only useful for synchronizing purchased items, it is also useful for backing up all the important files present on your OS. This may seem unnecessary, but backing up your files is extremely important. ICloud automatically does this for you, so you don’t need to save things manually yourself as well.
We also recommend iCloud because you can save a lot of time if you transfer your files from one device to another through it. You Apple ID will allow access to all files, doesn’t matter where you are. No need to carry your device around with you all the time just to secure your most important files.
