How To Use iCloud Services Effectively

Portable devices owners have access to powerful tools that can be incredibly useful, but the average user might not be aware of how to get the most out of their device. For the most part, iCloud services are easy to use and understand. However, there are several parts of the service that might require a little advice to be as useful as possible.

iCloud services are tools that help Apple device owners use the cloud to their advantage. Along with being able to make phone calls or access the internet, users are able to store files on the cloud and use several other features to maximize their device.

iCloud Storage comes included with any device associated with an Apple account. Five gigabytes of storage of storage will be included with the device upon activation and will remain active as long as the device remains tied to the account. Additional storage will be provided at a very affordable price. Fifty gigabytes of storage comes at less than one dollar per month. Five hundred gigabytes can be provided for less than three dollars per month. A full terabyte, or one thousand gigabytes, will be provided for just under ten dollars per month.

Find My Phone is a menu that allows users to locate their device if it’s lost. By navigating to the menu on another device or navigating to on a computer, users will be presented with several options. Play Sound allows device owners to play an alert noise that helps them locate the device if it has been misplaced within a certain area. Lost Mode will help locate the device if it was left somewhere. This menu allows users to find the device on a map or be alerted when the device is spotted. The wipe device option is a last resort that will allow the user to clear the device of any information and make it unusable.

Backup is an option that allows users to store their files and information on the cloud. Files and folders can be selected to upload to the web and automatically be stored safely. Depending on the amount of available space, users can decide how much data they want to be stored and how many backups they want to be saved.
