iCloud by Apple

You know with cloud storage being what it is, you knew that Apple would get into the action. Their cloud storage is called iCloud.

iCloud, what is it

When you have an Apple product, like a iPhone, then you have 5GB given you as a freebie. So you get 5GB to upload the following:

  • Photos
    • Your original, full-resolution photos are uploaded here
  • Files
  • Mail
    • From your iCloud email, not any others
  • Calendar
    • Makes it nice to sync across your devices
  • Notes
  • Reminders
  • Contacts
    • This is a nice thing to have
  • Pages
  • Numbers
  • Keynote
  • Messages
  • Bookmarks and other options for safari
  • Backup and restore comes in handy when getting a new device. 
  • Locate your devices
    • You can track your friends as well
  • iCloud Keychain
  • Storage increases
  • Share music, books, and other stuff with your family.

How big can you go

Well, I know that 5GB really isn’t that much. So there are different sizes you can choose from. It all depends on where you are in the world for the pricing but I will base this on the United States prices.

  • 5GB
    • Free
  • 50GB
    • $0.99
  • 200GB
    • $2.99
  • 2TB
    • $9.99

These are all monthly. So if you are going to go with 2TB then it will $9.99 a month.

My opinion

So I have a few Apple products and so naturally I have iCloud storage. The 5GB storage lasted me a while, then I went to the 200GB and shared it with one of my kids. The others were on the 50GB plan. I took the leap and got the 2TB plan and I shared these members of the family. It is a nice thing to have I mean I have

  • iPhone
  • iPad
  • MacBook Pro

The others have iPhones, MacBook Airs as well and we use the storage.

It makes it nice to have all the stuff right there. I use it as an Exchange server and sync all the calendar items, notes, contacts, and reminders to all of my devices. It makes it so nice and I can access it from a browser. So if you use an Apple product. Check it out.
