Right now, to manage your iOS-based devices, you don’t have to physically handle them one by one. If you’ve more than one Apple device, you can now have control of them in real-time with the use of a cloud computing service that’s called iCloud. In fact, you can also backup your data on iCloud because it’s also a cloud hosting service as well. It’s got many features that are highly advantageous to serious business owners and for those hobbyists. If you’re looking for a way to make changes to various devices without the need to purchase and make use of external storage devices, you could become a member of iCloud today.
With it, you can back up the information of your paid application and some of your media files like your pictures, music and video. You can now store the data of your mobile devices, tablets, and personal computers or make changes to each of them at the same time because iCloud offers real-time remote controlling. It’s got the Back to My Mac feature which could enable any user to access his or her Macintosh remotely—with the use of iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch mobile devices that are connected to the internet. By just signing in to his or her iCloud account on the internet, it would be possible for you to control any of your synched devices and have some protection at the same time. It’s got the “Find My iPhone feature” which can let any user who’ve lost his or her iCloud device track it down and have his or her data protected at all times against prying eyes. Now, there’s the Lost Mode which would enable an iCloud member to mark his or her machine as something that’s “lost”. With it, any user would be able to lock his or her device remotely and immediately.
The advantage of this service is that it’s free for Apple members and it has some features which can be beneficial for those who own iOS, OS X, and Windows machines. The iCloud service makes use of Find My Friends and Photo Stream as well which is great for sharing pictures and finding out friends’ location around the globe. In fact, you can even show people where you exactly are when you make use of this cloud computing service. With Photo Stream, once you upload a picture, it would automatically be replicated and distributed on each of your synched devices. You don’t have to copy and paste files over and over again just to transfer files.
If you want to make use of this service, you have to know the icloud login system on different devices. You see, the process of logging in to your iCloud account with the use of your iPhone is different than the method of accessing iCloud through a Macintosh computer. To know how to go about accessing this online backup service on the internet, you could go directly to Apple’s website and ask for help or you could ask assistance from those who’ve already made use of it.
