    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.

    It’s easily accessible from my iPhone and even if I don’t have my iPhone I can access on any computer with a secure 2 factor authentication required to verify access, super secure.

    It’s literally the best system out there. When you want to save pictures and everything from your old phone iCloud will save all that for you and add it to the next phone which is very convienent.

    Most Apple products specifically require iCloud to function properly, which is difficult due to Apple’s lack of specialized software with no alternate options.

    Best cloud storage for iPhone

    Reviewed 8 months ago

    I really have a wonderful experience for almost 4 years working with this application. It can be use to store my work files and document, along with my personal files like my picture and video from the phone.

    Pros

    I really like that iCloud offer a good protection and security for my files and media stored in the software. My files will readily available on all my other Apple device like my iPad and my MacBook as it will synchronized it across my all device. It is also cheap to adding more storage size to it.

    Cons

    It is only convenient to use it with Apple product. Use it from android device or from Windows based device will lose all the automation to synchronized the data automatically. Other than that, i don't have anything more to complain about this software as they work really well with my apple device.

    iCloud review from my perspective

    Reviewed 7 months 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.

    Easy to use and gives you ease of mind. Have your tech be safe and backed up.

    It takes the stress out of carrying your phone and laptop with you, you know your work is going to be safe and easy to access.

    Cons

    Sometimes it’s too limited on what you want to do, but the benefits outweighs the cons.

    For many-device or heavy backup/cloud sync needs, stay far away or use additional backup solution

    Reviewed 3 years ago
    Pros

    When I first used with just an iPhone and an iMac, everything worked pretty well and there is really no configuration. Current plans and family sharing make it a pretty affordable cloud/sync option for everyday users.

    Cons

    iCloud isn't a true backup-type solution (even iCloud Drive) and once I became a power user and added another Macbook, Apple TV, and Apple Watch, it became a living nightmare once it broke. After 6 months I am still trying to piece together all my files and photos to ultimately get off iCloud as best I can. Apple makes it nearly impossible not to use iCloud somewhat. You will experience non-stop...

    Why you should use iCloud to store your files

    Reviewed 3 months ago

    My overall experience is excellent! I can manage my files anywhere, store them and delete not necessary ones, and it helps me during work routine because I don't have to keep deleting everything to free up space.

    Pros

    What I liked most about this software is that it has a low cost for a big space storage, and I can upload my files and organize them neatly, without further issues. The sync feature is also great, which allows me to free up space on my iphone or macbook, or any other mac device, and even access my files without internet connection.

    Cons

    Personally I didn't find any cons, so far, but I would advise new users to organize well their files, or they may get very lost! And please do research what is the best storage for your budget, Apple had offered me a good deal with this one!
