iCloud basics

What is iCloud?
iCloud stores your music, photos, apps, contacts, calendars, and more, and wirelessly pushes them to your iOS 5 devices and computers. iCloud is integrated with your apps, so everything happens automatically. For example, if you buy a song in iTunes on a Mac or Windows computer, it appears on your iPod touch and iPad. When you snap a photo on your iPhone it’s automatically sent to your iPad. You can start creating a Pages document on your iPhone, and put the finishing touches on it from your iPad. There’s no need to dock your iOS device or sync it to your computer.

iCloud includes
iTunes in the Cloud: Music you purchase in iTunes appears automatically on your devices. You can also download your past music or TV show purchases. Note: iTunes in the Cloud availability varies by country. TV shows is U.S. only. Photo Stream: When you take a photo on one iOS device, it automatically appears on your other devices with no syncing required. Documents in the Cloud: If you’ve installed an app that supports Documents in the Cloud on more than one device, iCloud automatically keeps your documents up to date across your devices. Apps and Books: Apps and books that you purchase appear on your iOS devices automatically. You can also download your past purchases of apps and books. Backup: iCloud automatically backs up your iOS device daily over Wi-Fi when it’s connected to a power source and the device is screen-locked. iCloud backs up your purchased music and TV shows, apps, books, Camera Roll, device settings, app data, Home screen and app organization, messages (iMessage, SMS, and MMS), and ringtones. Note: Backup of purchased music is not available in all countries. Backup of purchased TV shows is U.S. only.

Contacts, Calendar, Mail: iCloud stores your calendars and contacts and automatically keeps them up to date across your devices. With iCloud, you can also get a me.com email account that pushes new messages to your devices. iCloud also stores and updates your bookmarks, reminders, and notes. Find My iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac: If you misplace your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac, you can use Find My iPhone to help you find its location on a map, play a sound at full volume, send a message, lock the screen, or erase its data. You can use the Find My iPhone web application at icloud.com on any computer, or download and use the free app on your iOS device. Find My Friends: Use the free Find My Friends app on your iOS 5 device (iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch) to easily locate your friends and family. Back to My Mac: Using Back to My Mac, you can securely connect to your remote Mac from another Mac over the Internet, and access files or control its screen. Before you can use iCloud, you need to sign up for an iCloud account on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 5 or later, or on a Mac running OS X Lion v10.7.2. If you don’t yet have an iCloud account or haven’t yet set up iCloud on all your devices, set up iCloud now. If you’ve already set up iCloud on your devices, click a help topic on the left (or use search) for more information. Note: When accessing icloud.com, make sure you use a recommended browser.

Set up iCloud on your devices
Before you can use iCloud, you need to create an iCloud account (using your existing Apple ID if you have one already, or by creating a new one if you don’t), and then turn on the iCloud services you want to use on each of your iOS devices and computers. If you already installed iOS 5 or later on any of your devices, you were asked if you wanted to turn on iCloud. To make sure everything is set up correctly, or to set up your iCloud account on another device, follow the steps below. Important: Be sure to use the same iCloud account information on each device you set up.

Set up iCloud on your iOS devices and computers Go to the set up iCloud website.

After you set up each device, iCloud begins to push information to each device. You can also now sign in to icloud.com and start using the iCloud web applications. For help using any of the iCloud web applications, click a help topic on the left.
