Cloud . We’ve heard it many times. That invisible space available on the Internet. In it, we store our files, share with others and have all our information on any device at the time, provided we have an Internet connection.
If Dropbox, if Evernote, Google Drive … Apple also has its cloud service. Your name?ICloud and Technology today teach you to you you what it is and how we can use itto make our daily lives a little easier.
What is iCloud?
The simplest definition of iCloud is to imagine a hard drive. A space with a capacity of 5GB . We have it , but is not in our computer nor on mobile or tablet. It is far from us, in some remote server.
That space intelligently synchronizes and without us having to do anything, the information we want . Documents, music, photographs, application data … Each user has 5GB free, and if we want to expand the option to pay.
The interesting thing is iCloud operation. Everything happens in the background, without us having to worry copy or paste. Cloud, and our teams, organize everything as we have asked. Quietly and making our life a little easier without card readers for mobile.
iCloud service that works on all Mac devices so if you have a Mac, an iPhone and iPad synchronization is highest among all devices. From other devices such as Android or Windows Phone, we can not.
How to configure iCloud
Launch iCloud is as simple as its operation. Since Mac, just have to go to the Settings menu and then go to the section of iCloud. Then select which applications and which do not want to synchronize. That easy.
When we keep the changes, iCloud will start operating putting everything we have said in the cloud. If iOS, both iPhone and iPad, in the setup menu have a menu. The options are the same, we mark documents applications and ready.
In the case of iPhone or iPad, the list will be bigger and more applications use this service to store our documents, game scores, etc. This is especially if our mobile and tablet are brand apple.
Finally, from the browser, we can go to the website of iCloud and manage all our information in the cloud from there. As you can see in the screenshot below these lines, everything is very intuitive.
Things you can do with iCloud and may not know
iCloud is not only to synchronize our data. We can also give you more uses. For example, we can make backups of applications and games on your iPhone or iPad for, if we have to delete all, we can restore in just minutes.
It also allows us to have our synchronized between mobile and tablet applications.Something especially useful if you are writing notes or using the same applications on both sides.
Finally, thanks to iCloud we can find our iPhone or iPad if you lose. The cloud willhelp us, if the device is connected to the Internet, to know where he is. Moreover, to avoid privacy issues, we can remove all information remotely.
