iCloud

iCloud lets you access your music, photos, documents and more from whatever device you’re on. It’s easy to set up and use. And with features that give you peace of mind and make sharing simple, iCloud is also great with just one Apple device.

iCloud puts your content on all your devices.

Everywhere. Automatically. That’s the way it should be, and iCloud makes it a reality. So when you buy a song, you don’t have to download it over and over to enjoy it on multiple devices. Or worry that a document doesn’t contain your latest revisions. Or spend time transferring photos. iCloud takes care of everything for you. Just like that.

iCloud lets you share what you want. With the people you choose.

Create a shared photo stream for your island vacation and you can see snapshots and videos from everyone in your group. Send a location-based alert to your family members and they’ll know just where you are and when you arrive. With iCloud, you can share exactly what you want, with exactly whom you want.

iCloud helps give you peace of mind.

Misplaced your device? iCloud can help you find it, and prevent anyone else from using it in the meantime. Have important information on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch? iCloud backs up your data daily over Wi-Fi and can restore it all if you ever need it. And those are just two of the many ways iCloud has your back.

iCloud is easy to set up.

Whether you’re on an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac or PC, getting started with iCloud is simple. For new Apple devices, there’s a setup assistant built right in. And for everything else, setup takes just a few quick steps.
