Take Control of iCloud, Second Edition

Understand its features and limitations, get set up, and enjoy iCloud!

iCloud is a simple idea—all your data on all your devices, via the cloud—that often becomes complex in real-world situations, such as when you want to share your contacts list, or when you want to open a document stored in iCloud in an app other than the one that created it. In this best-selling title from Joe Kissell, you'll start by learning what iCloud can do, how it differs from other cloud services, and what hardware and software you need to use iCloud successfully on Macs, iOS devices, the Apple TV, and Windows-based PCs.

Update note: With 10.10 Yosemite and iOS 8.1 now available, a great deal about iCloud has changed since we updated this book last spring. Joe is preparing a new edition, which we plan (but do not promise) to publish in November. If you buy this title now, you will get a free update to then new edition.

Joe walks you through setting up iCloud (whether you have one or more iCloud accounts), and then explains the key aspects—and hidden gotchas—of iCloud's core features, all while helping you understand what iCloud is trying to do and why it might not match your expectations. Features covered include Apple Store integration, iTunes Match, My Photo Stream, iCloud Photo Sharing, Documents in the Cloud, Mail, Contacts, Calendars, Reminders, browser data, iCloud Keychain, Find My iPhone, Find My Mac, Find My Friends, and backing up and restoring iOS data.
