Apple’s iCloud lets you sync and store data across all your devices, so you can access what you need, where you need it, when you need it!
iCloud is a ‘cloud-based storage service’, which means that information is stored securely on a remote computer, known as a ‘cloud server’, rather than locally (on your computer, iPhone or iPad).
You can use iCloud to store pictures, music, documents and folders across all your Apple devices – iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and Mac – as well as syncing your emails, contacts, calendars, etc using one Apple ID. You can also access the information from any internet-connected device – even Windows PCs.
iCloud is free – at it’s most basic level. However, you will probably find the 5GB limit insufficient if you wish to store significant numbers of photos, videos or other large documents. But the good news is that iCloud storage is relatively cheap! At the time of writing, 50GB costs £0.79 per month, 200GB is £2.49 and 2TB is £6.99 (50GB will usually be sufficient for the ‘average’ user).

In order to set up iCloud, you’ll first need an Apple ID. You may also need to update the OS on your device to the most recent version.
Once set up, iCloud works quietly in the background, seamlessly syncing calendar events, photos and contact details across all your Apple devices.
