Method 3 – How To Use Icloud – Complete Beginner’s Guide
Hey everyone in todays video i want to teach you all about icloud and a lot of people already know. What icloud is but theyre not utilizing it the way to its fullest potential really so what is icloud if. You dont know what it is if you have an apple product so apple makes iphones they make ipads they. Make imacs or different types of laptops and all those have access to whats called icloud and what icloud is.
Is a cloud-based storage system okay meaning instead of storing things on your phone or your ipad or your computer. That has a limited amount of storage you could extend that storage by putting it in the cloud basically in. A digital environment that is not on your physical device okay thats the cloud okay its just a remote server. Some other computer somewhere else that will store those things for you from apple now its been around since 2011. So almost as long as the iphone has been around weve had icloud before but what i really want to.
Teach you in this video is exactly all the different features that icloud has to offer now by default you. Get a certain amount of icloud storage when you buy an iphone or an ipad and you sign up for. Whats called apple id and that right now that limit is five gigabytes okay which is not that much thats. The free version of it but you could actually update and get i believe i get 200 gigabytes for about. A dollar or two dollars a month something like that that lets me basically put all my photos and videos.
And documents into the cloud and ill show you that here because i really want to show you in this. Video icloud.com you do have icloud on your phone and on your ipad too it looks like this ill cover. This in a different video because what im going to show you on the website all these options are going. To be available there too but this basically is going to show you things that icloud has access to on. Your phone so you can see my mail contact calendar reminder all those are turned on so this is more.
Of an option to turn things on and off for your phone but the website icloud.com is really what is. The most useful so how do you sign in here go to icloud.com and type in your apple id as. Long as you have an apple device most likely you already have an apple id which in my case is. An email address so type that in and if you forgot it you could go ahead and press forgot okay. And if you dont have one then just look up how to sign up for apple id you could create.
One down here pretty straightforward ill go ahead and log in and here is icloud and these are all the. Different apps and services you get access to just by having an icloud account okay now whats great about this. Is with that apple id now whatever i do here on icloud.com is gonna transfer over or sync up with. My phone and my ipad and really any other device that i have linked up so let me show you. In order what youre looking at here you got your mail now this is the same mail application i have.
On my computer for my icloud email address if i click this its going to let me basically review any. Email i have in my inbox i could go ahead and compose any email and just work off of this. As my email from icloud.com i dont have to sync it up to my computer and this all syncs up. To my phone on the same email address okay this is really really useful option let me go back thats. Icloud mail here or apple mail you have your contact again if you remove or add people here it will.
Sync up with your phone and your computer if you have apple computer in your icloud account you have your. Calendar this is just a typical calendar here where you could sync up different calendars and move forward and backward. In time very useful you have your whole photos library here now i use icloud to backup all my photos. Theyre not actually on my phone so i could access them here anytime and you also have this thing called. Icloud drive now this is super powerful that most people are not using at all but what icloud drive does.
Especially when you upgrade to a bigger storage so i have 200 gigabytes i could upload any document here and. Store it in the cloud so this will take it off with my computer and my phone i could store. Everything from documents to downloads to keynotes and pages which well talk about all that could be on idrive so. This is like google drive if you ever use that or dropbox and let me show you one more thing. Here if you have it set up on your computer you get this little option called icloud drive which is.
Exactly what youre looking at here on my computer and the website so whatever i do here on my computer. It will sync up to this icloud website which then will sync up to my phone super super useful and. Again as i mentioned if you have dropbox it works the same way this shows up right here i have. Microsoft onedrive creative cloud this is adobes so these are all kind of the same thing cloud storage from different. Companies they all show up over here on my computer let me go back now and you have notes and.
Notes and reminders are just documents that you already have access to on your phone and they will sync up. Here but you could start a note here instead so for example heres the note heres the script that im. Just using right now for this video and i could refer to it over here and i wrote it on. My ipad and it synced up to icloud so really really easy and useful option same with reminders and then. We get to this section pages numbers and keynotes now all these three applications i have complete videos on how.
To use them on your computer but basically with pages this is like uh microsoft word okay or google docs. Where you could just type in text very very simple to you use document creation numbers is like microsoft excel. Or google sheets okay where you have spreadsheets really easy to use as well and keynote is kind of like. Powerpoint or google slides where you could create slide presentations or powerpoint presentations okay so watch those videos if you. Want to learn more about those but you could create them directly from here and it will sync up to.
Your icloud account and you could get the apps on your phone too and open them up there find my. Friends is really easy and useful option for basically one of the most useful options with this is tracking your. Family especially if you have younger kids you could go ahead and activate this feature ill make a separate video. Thats more in depth on that so you could watch that after this and one of the main reasons i. Showed you icloud.com on the computer here is because of find my let me click this and find my basically.
Tries to locate your devices if youre away from your devices most of the time if you lose your iphone. Or ipad or computer you could go to icloud.com on someone elses device or computer and basically search for all. Your different devices so thats the find my option okay thats going to help you find stolen or lost devices. And ill show you account settings and with this this is really useful because you could get a good overview. Of your storage this is also available on your phone and your ipad too but it shows you how much.
Photos and videos you have i purposely got the upgraded storage here you could update on your phone easily and. I now update or upload all my photos and videos sync them up and take them off my device icloud. Also backs up any device that you have if you choose to do that on that device and that way. If something happens to it or you move to a different device you could use that backup i back up. All the time using icloud your mail shows up here and whats available shows up here very nice visual graph.
All your devices show up here too so you could click on any of them at any time for more. Information and thats really the broad overview of this page and if i show you that on the the phone. Here same kind of thing okay so under your apple id on icloud you could see the same graph and. You can manage your storage which is one of the most useful parts of icloud here on the phone but. If i press manage storage on that icloud setting its going to let me here change my storage plan so.
This is how i upgraded it but i could also decide what needs to be removed over here so if. I have a lot of things showing up on this side its going to let me remove it let me. Actually show you how to get to this page from the beginning all you have to do is open settings. On your phone so this is the settings app open it on this page click your name right here on. Your phone this works on ipad the same way and here you see that option right here says icloud click.
This and thats how i got to this page okay so i could see my storage i could manage storage. But more importantly any apps that are using icloud could be turned on and off here so if you dont. Want those to take up space in your icloud account you could actually turn any of them on or off. Just like this okay you just press this little slider right here and you could delete it from your phone. And not sync it to your icloud so this is really really useful just to know where to turn these.
Off and icloud drive i always keep on so then things on my phone could be stored to this so. I could open them easily on icloud.com or on my computers folder that i showed you earlier and you can. Make sure any app you have is not synced up to icloud 2 if you dont want that information to. Be synced with your icloud account so those are some of the useful options on the phone but ill cover. These in a different video in more detail and thats your crash course on using icloud and i hope some.
Of the information i provided was new information to you so you could really utilize icloud to its full potential. Again make sure if youre gonna use it to upgrade and pay that dollar two dollars a month extra so. You could go and have a lot more information or a lot more storage than you typically get with icloud. I hope you found this video useful make sure you subscribe for easy to follow tech videos just like this. One posted every single day on this channel and ill see you next time.
