How to Get All Your Apple Devices in Sync

Do you own more than one Apple device? Are you looking for a way to simplify your life and make more efficient use of your multiple devices?
One of the most popular features of Apple devices is their ability to synchronize with one another, bringing a new level of convenience and productivity to multi-Apple device households. Files, pictures, and messages on one of your Apple devices can easily be accessed, shared and readily available on other devices with just a few simple steps. For example, you can access the photos on your iPhone® device from your iPad® tablet wherever you are.

  1. Make sure your device is updated and using the most recent update of iOS® software
  2. Select a device, preferably an iPhone device or iPad tablet

  7. Select your location preference once prompted
  8. Set up an iCloud feature email to synchronize notes
