The best place for all your photos, files and more.
iCloud is built into every Apple device. That means all your stuff — photos, files, notes and more — is safe, up to date and available wherever you are. And it works automatically, so all you have to do is keep doing what you love. Everyone gets 5GB of free iCloud storage to start, and it’s easy to add more at any time.

Aug 07, 2020 Apple’s iCloud may be a terrific way to sync data between your iPhone, iPad, and computer, but the software also offers an effortless way to back up your devices. Backup information includes.
All your photos and videos.
A lifetime of photos
on all your devices.
With iCloud Photos, you can browse, search and share all the photos and videos from any of your devices, whether they were taken yesterday or years ago.
Take all the photos you want. Without worrying about space on your devices.
To save space on your devices, the original, full‑resolution photos you take are automatically uploaded to iCloud. You’ll still always have a lightweight version of every photo on your device, and you can download the originals whenever you need them.
All your files available from all your devices.
The files you keep safe in iCloud Drive are easy to get to, no matter which device you’re using. You can access all your files from the Files app on iOS and iPadOS, the Finder on your Mac, File Explorer for Windows PCs, or iCloud.com.
Organise files however you want. Get to them on any device you want.
iCloud Drive lets you organise your files with folders, rename them and tag them with colours. And when you make a change, the update is made across all your devices. You can even have everything in your Mac Desktop and Documents folders automatically available in iCloud Drive.
Apps using iCloud
Your favourite apps are
even better with iCloud.
All your essentials.
Accessible from all your devices.
iCloud automatically keeps apps — including Mail, Calendar, Contacts, Reminders, Safari and some of your favourite apps from the App Store — updated across all your devices. So when you add a new phone number, bookmark a website or update a slide in a presentation, the change appears everywhere.
Collaborate with Pages, Numbers, Keynote and Notes.
Work with others on documents, presentations and spreadsheets, and see edits as they’re made. With live updates on all your devices, your collaborators will always be on the same page.
Every message. Updated across all your devices.
iCloud automatically stores all your messages. Search for an address, a funny exchange or anything else. And you can pick up every conversation where you left off. Even when you move to a new phone or computer.
iCloud Backup and Restore
All the things that matter.
Safe and secure.
Automatic backups give you peace of mind.
iCloud automatically backs up your iOS and iPadOS devices when they’re connected to power and Wi‑Fi. So if you lose your device or get a new one, you’ll have all the things that matter without missing a beat.1
Move to a new device with everything you loved about your old one.
iCloud makes moving your settings, photos, apps and documents to a new device seamless. Just sign in to iCloud when you set up your new device, and you’ll be ready to go in minutes.
Two‑factor authentication helps keep your data safe.
Two‑factor authentication is an extra layer of security designed to ensure that only you can access your account. That means your account can only be accessed on devices you trust, like your iPhone, iPad or Mac.
Find the storage plan that’s right for you.
The right amount of storage depends on how you and your family members want to use your devices. Everyone gets 5GB of free iCloud storage to get started and it’s easy to upgrade at any time. Your apps and any iTunes or Apple TV purchases don’t count towards your iCloud storage space, so you need it just for things like photos, videos, files and device backups.
Good for safely storing all the basics, like contacts, calendars and notes.
Recommended for storing your photos, videos, files and apps, and backing up your device.
