Internet cloud services have been around for years, but not everyone has a firm grasp on what they are. Underneath the abstract, easily misunderstood name, however, is a highly useful tool for anyone who toggles between smartphones, laptops, and tablets in their daily life. Here are a few reasons why you should get your Apple® devices set up on a cloud service.
Why You Need Your Apple Devices on the Cloud
Cloud services, including iCloud®, enable users to sync their data between all of their primary devices. This way, if you upload photos from your iPhone® to the cloud, they'll also be accessible on your Mac® computer or iPad® tablet. The same goes for documents, files, and contact information.
Back Up Devices
Another important advantage to using the iCloud or other storage services is that they keep backups of apps on your phone. In other words, the iCloud creates copies of all of the latest data on your phone—usually every few months, as long as you periodically sign in—so that if you lose or break the device, the information can easily be transferred to a new one.
Free Up Storage
Depending on the hard drive you start out with, storage can become an issue after several years of owning an iPhone. Photos, music, text conversations, podcasts, and apps gradually eat up more and more storage, and soon enough, you have almost no space left on your phone. One of the quickest and most effective ways to solve this issue is by uploading some of that data to the cloud. This can open up several gigabytes of data, freeing up space for photos, apps, games, and everything else you enjoy on your phone.
