iCloud is completely free and helps you to keep all your data in sync and backed up with ease. iCloud stores all your music, photos, documents and apps securely and allows you to automatically download them whenever and wherever you are.
The best thing about the iCloud service is there’s no syncing required – everything just happens automatically. Buy an app on your iPad and it’s automatically sent to your iPhone. Similarly, if you download a new album on your iPhone, it’s ready and waiting for you on your iPad. It works seamlessly and invisibly in the background.
It’s not just for music and apps though, as iCloud ensures that your email, contacts and calendars are all kept up-to-date, too. It doesn’t matter which of your devices the change is made on, every single one will simply update itself.
You get 5GB of free storage, but as apps, books, music and TV shows don’t count towards this space it’s a generous allowance. If you need more space you can buy it. You can also back up your iPhone to iCloud for an added level of protection. No matter what happens, your data will be safe. iCloud also includes Photo Stream that immediately pushes any pictures you take on your iPhone to your iPad or Mac. There’s a lot more to iCloud and it’s sure to be greatly expanded. We’ll show you how to set it up here.
