    Pros
    Apple customer support is just the best, they really try to help you with whatever they can and they have helped me restore my password to my account that had all my data.
    I like that it exists, and it's good to backup important things. I wish they gave you more space for free.
    I love how easy it is to connect all things iCloud with my iPhone. I found this especially useful for backing up my devices and sharing photos.
    Cons
    I personally struggled with iCloud, finding my docs once they were uploaded, uploading, I felt like I was missing pieces, I was always concerned about losing things.
    My account has been hacket but i can not recover all my phone and... lost it.
    Most Apple products specifically require iCloud to function properly, which is difficult due to Apple’s lack of specialized software with no alternate options.

    La scelta più logica (ed economica) per chi usa dispositivi Apple

    Reviewed 2 months ago

    Un ottimo sostituto della memoria fisica del dispositivo, con il vantaggio della condivisione cross-device e la sicurezza che i miei dati vengono conservati anche in caso di smarrimento o danno irreparabile del dispositivo hardware.

    Pros

    iCloud permette di disporre di uno spazio di archiviazione cloud associato al proprio utente Apple e condiviso da tutti i dispositivi in uso (iPhone, Mac, iPad…). Questo permette un’esperienza particolarmente fluida, potendo leggere ed editare i propri documenti, foto e video inclusi, da tutti i propri dispositivi come se tutti condividessero lo stesso identico hard drive. Questo ha semplificato enormemente il mio lavoro in mobilità. Inoltre consente un importante risparmio sull’acquisto dei dispositivi stessi, potendo puntare su tagli minimi di memoria, andando poi a sfruttare lo spazio sul cloud per i file utente.

    Cons

    Credo che molti utenti non ne abbiamo compreso le potenzialità perché restii a sottoscrivere un abbonamento, in quanto il piano standard incluso con il dispositivo è di solo 5 GB. A mio avviso il piano standard dovrebbe essere di almeno 128 GB (con tagli che rispecchino i tagli di memoria). Trovo inoltre macchinoso il sistema di condivisione dei file con altri utenti, soprattutto se utenti non-Apple.

    Icloud me protege

    Reviewed 12 days ago

    Me gusta, es un buen almacenador de datos, archivos, fotos, videos y sobre todo protege la seguridad del dispositivo.

    Pros

    Me gusta que cada vez que se intente acceder, te avise desde donde se accede y te envie códigos de seguridad. Los archivos son en máxima calidad y ademas que realiza copias de seguridad al dispositivo.

    Cons

    Que aveces no haya mucho soporte para recuperar una cuenta icloud antigua, si se podria recuperar a través de documento de identidad, sería genial.

    Save your money

    Reviewed a month ago

    The problem is APPLE is getting more and more aggressive they hold your hostage and they own everything that is off where is it again yes that’s right in the cloud… Wherever in God’s name that is and where is it you may ask? Nowhere that you’ll ever find and if you stop paying them it is gone for good now even when you say no thank you no extra cloud storage the red settings button will not go away their belief if we are in your face you will give us money!

    Pros

    Ease of use simple and automated I really have nothing good to say about a auto enrollment monthly program

    Cons

    Save yourself a lot of grief, time and money …buy yourself a external hard drive ( yes a actual physical one that you OWN yourself)… guess what nothing disappears nothing is erased nothing gets transferred off unless you want it you have all your videos all your files and all your photos right where you want them at your house! Don’t you hate the infinite him of Apple over and over and over give me money give me money give me money? So please just get a hard drive and ignore

    I love it. I will never switch and it will always be my primary and my go to

    Pros

    I love iCloud and being able to live stress-free. I feel as though all of my information is safe and secure.

    Cons

    As anything you aren't familiar with there may be somethings that are confusing at the beginning. But when you are new to using iCloud they do offer tutorials how to use. Also, if they had an app that uses iCloud that is some sort of typing document like word, or google docs.
