Good but not always preferred

2018-10-17

Pros

Data syncing is easy. Data backup is handy.

Cons

The only thing that saddens me is that I'm the only one who uses iCloud. My whole family uses Android and Windows. Also, to totally enjoy iCloud's features, users have no other choice but buy the monthly premium plan.

Apple is on the right path, but they are far behind

2018-08-23

Pros

I like how relatively inexpensive it is to purchase large amounts of backup storage, especially knowing that my phone is constantly being backed up to the cloud.

Cons

I hate that I can't edit documents in the cloud, the UI is confusing, especially when trying to share your data with the family members on your plan.

Almost perfect

2017-09-10

Pros

When I change a file on a local device it is instantly uploaded to iCloud. 4) Wonderful web interface: The interface for accessing your files via the web is wonderful.

Cons

In many ways this is only a minor issue because Apple have exceptional security. However, if someone ever managed to hack into Apple servers, then your data would be compromised.

Quick and useful

2018-08-14

Pros

in terms of backing up my apple device data, icloud is very useful in the sense that it backs everything up automatically without you having to think about it

Cons

The constant popups that icloud sends you can get quite annoying and the adjustment from android to apple was not helpful either.

Long Time User

2018-05-30

Pros

I really think that iCloud is a great platform if you use it immediately. I've been toggling between iCloud and the google suite which has been difficult to utilize both.

Cons

I wish there was an easier way to integrate my Google suite information into my current iCloud account.

missing piece to connecting laptop and mobile phone

2018-03-24

Pros

Once set up the, using iCloud is a background activity that makes processes smoother.

It makes sense to share an iCloud account for shared access to photos and so on, however set it up incorrectly and you will also share messages and browser history.

Why Use iCloud? Better Options Exist

2018-07-03

Pros

It is very convenient to synchronize data across all your iDevices.

Cons

I am not convinced that it is worthwhile to pay Apple for extra iCloud space since there are apps like Amazon Prime that offers unlimited free photo storage. For someone who subscribes to Prime anyway it makes much more sense.

Great easy tool to keep all your data safe

2019-01-05

Pros

The best thing about iCloud is that it comes with any Apple product, it is easy to use, and ensures that all data is stored through daily syncing.

Cons

Apple users and buyers should not have to pay additional for storage, would rather put it into google drive.

Basic cloud storage

2018-06-30

Pros

It makes back-ups to the cloud automatic and the user interface is simple and intuitive.

Cons

Free storage is only 5 GB. That is measly compared to the average user requirements nowadays. Additional storage is really expensive.
