iCloud is a particularly easy way of syncing data between mobile Apple devices such as iPhone and iPad, or between these mobile devices and a computer (Mac or PC). You can activate the service with just a few clicks and it is then immediately available.
In seconds, you can sync information such as calendar events, reminders, browser bookmarks, photos, documents and more between different devices. And it all happens automatically.
Many iCloud features are intuitive at a glance. But sometimes it takes a bit more time to dig out all the details. Luckily, two Apple experts have thoroughly tested all features and settings for you and describe them in this e-Book.
Now you, too, can become a power user!
