iCloud is an Apple service which allows users to keep files and settings synchronised across Apple devices. Anyone who uses an Apple account would do well to make use of the iCloud storage, which allocates 5 GB of free cloud storage per user. iCloud can be activated during the initial configuration of your new Apple device. However, if you skipped that initial setup process, you can follow the steps in the next section to set up iCloud storage for that account.
Steps to set up iCloud storage
- Open Settings on your iPhone or iPad.
- Select “iCloud”. You will need to sign in with your Apple ID to set up iCloud.
- Click on Storage and Backup>iCloud Backup>Back up now
- Choose which apps and data you want to sync to the cloud storage.
If you follow these steps successfully to set up iCoud storage, all your apps and data will now automatically be uploaded for storing. If you want your files across all your different Apple devices – iPhone, iPad, and Mac – to get synchronised automatically, you need to set up iCloud storage on all of them. iCloud makes it effortless to store and access your files regardless of which Apple device you need them on.
