    Pros
    It is very good for backing up your data and from moving your data from one iPhone device to another. The customer service is also a great deal for me and I honestly give them 5 stars for that.
    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.

    Have all your files backed up

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    In my job I have to save many files, images and notes, with iCloud I can have access to all my files that I keep on my iPhone and iMac and as I take up space I buy the plan that best suits my needs, and I can access these files From any device with my Apple ID, iCloud is accessible from anywhere and from any Apple device or web browser. In my experience, iCloud has the advantage that it syncs very well across all Apple devices. makes automatic backups so my documents are always up to date.

    Pros

    I like iCloud since this service gives me the opportunity to save and sync files such as images. photos, documents, videos, contacts, books, audiobooks, and the best of all is that they are in a safe place, the best thing about iCloud is that it syncs very well with all apple devices and has one of the best securities compared to other cloud storage services.

    Cons

    I don't like that they only give 5 GB of free cloud memory, since google drive give 3 times more cloud storage.

    iCloud review from my perspective

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    I enjoy several features of the iCloud service, including the simplicity with which backups can be performed, as well as the speed with which they can be performed directly on the iPhone. I dislike the five GB of space they provide the user with; it should be more. I use iCloud to save the most valuable videos and photos possible for backup purposes and backup WhatsApp.

    Pros

    The most valuable feature of I Cloud is how you can store your data for business or personal use in a secure location without having to worry about it. In recent years, as data and required documents and images increased, it became difficult to maintain storage, and you were forced to bring several devices. With I Cloud, you no longer needed to.

    Cons

    A reliable and effective method of storing documents and files for Apple product users, where your files and data are protected, is a proper backup solution. It's has an excellent user interface; I've been using it effectively for two years without encountering a single problem. The only thing that needs to be revised is the pricing structure, as it varies by country and by length.

    iCloud is a waste of money

    Reviewed a year ago

    Using iCloud for basic back up storage is about the only thing I would recommend iCloud for. Otherwise I feel that the features are very limited and hard to use. I still have no idea how to access my full iCloud data much less how to get my employees to be able to find an access it. I also find that when trying to find and view data in my iCloud that it has been deleted without my knowledge. I do not trust iCloud and I do not feel my data is safe or that it is an investment that is time efficient for my company. I do not recommend iCloud, use a different software.

    Pros

    I like how easy it is to set it up and start backing up my data. I also like how easy it is to change my plan as needed.

    Cons

    I really don’t like how I feel I have no access to my iCloud data. I know it’s there, but I have no idea how to find and access it easily and quickly, much less have my employees access it. I also feel that my data is not as safe as on other platforms. I feel that things are subject to being deleted without my knowledge. The pricing is also very expensive for the limited features I receive compared to other products.

    Among the top cloud storage options

    Reviewed 2 months ago

    For backing up and saving my stuff on the cloud, iCloud is quite helpful. It helps me free up phone storage, and I now only keep on my phone the files and documents that I typically need for offline access.

    Pros

    It's really easy and efficient to use iCloud to save all of my documents, photos, videos, audio files, and contact information on the cloud. There is no restriction on the size of files that can be uploaded to the storage, regardless of their size. As long as I use the same Apple ID on both phones, switching between my old and new phones is seamless and I can retrieve my data.

    Cons

    Using this program to manage emails and files is a real pain. The search function displays results far too slowly, and frequently returns results that have nothing to do with the phrase I typed. In addition to being sluggish, the synchronized process requires some time to load on my other device.
