Auto Backup

Imagine your phone being stolen or broken. And imagine losing all your photos, audio files, texts and more. Sounds horrible, right? Well, if you use the iCloud service and turn on the sync option, all your data is backed up in the cloud. That means that all your photos and files are safe. Even if something happens to your phone – your data can be restored easily. Even if nothing happnes, and you just decide to buy a new smartphone – you don’t have to waste time transfering all your files. iCloud does it for you.

Multi Device

iCloud features are in your iPhone, iPad, smart watch and your PC/MAC. You can start writing something on one device, and continue on another device. All the data can be accessed via the browser as well.

Storage Space

Every new user gets 5GB of free storage. Obvisouly, that’s not enough, especially if you have thousands of phgotois on your iPhone. But the other plans (500GB , 200GB and 2TB) are very affordable. It is obvious that Apple doesn’t try to rip you off here. In my opinion – the prices are very reasonable. On the other hand, it’s important to remember that many other services offer much more than 5GB of free storage space. Sometimes up to 50GB of free storage space.

Security

iCloud is very secure. You can also turn on the 2 factor authentication option. This means that every time you log in to your account – you will also have to enter a special code sent to your iPhone. So someone that wants to hack into your iCloud device, will also have to physically steel your smartphone. And that makes things much more complicated for hackers.
