iCloud settings on iPhone
I often run into conversations where people question iCloud, and the use of iCloud on iPhones, IPad, or MacBooks. But iCloud tends to be either something you love or you hate. Now, for the most part, I think I need to explain what iCloud is and how it benefits the use of our devices.
What is iCloud in Apple devices
ICloud is nothing more than a syncing service, it transfers its content from one device to another. If your iCloud ID is signed in to your iPhone and your MacBook. When you take a photo from your phone it will automatically transfer to your MacBook. If you delete a photo from your iPhone, it will automatically delete it from your MacBook.
Synchronize content from one device to another as well as backup and a safety net for you.
How to change iCloud settings on iPhone
As you can see in the iCloud setting, this is all the information that can synchronize within iCloud. Photos, emails, calendars, messages, notes, and the option goes on and on. The option at the bottom will depend on the type of apps you have installed on your device.
How to turn on iCloud
If the options are turned on as you can see in the pic, it means that iCloud is going to synchronize that information with another device like IPad or MacBook. For example, notes, if you create a note on your iPhone it will appear on your IPad.
This is what makes most people frustrated about iCloud but that’s the whole purpose of iCloud. It synchronizes the information from one device to another.
How to turn off iCloud
There are two options to turn off the iCloud. First, you can go to setting, scroll down to the bottom and “Sign Out.” This way all your photos, contacts, messages, and notes will be removed from your device.
Second, if you want to partially sync some content you can do it as well. If you don’t want your notes, messages, and contacts to synchronize on iCloud, you can simply turn it off as shown in the picture.
These little options in your “iCloud settings” allow you to do that. Here you want to make a judgment call and decide what you want to use iCloud for. If you “don’t wanna use iCloud” you can simply “Sign Out.”
To make a long story short, iCloud is a great service, it’s more about understanding its pros of it V.S looks at the price tag and says why do I need more iCloud storage.
