Lots of computers and laptops have been given and received as gifts over the holidays. We know this means that are a lot of people now wondering how to set things up the best possible way. Make sure you are getting the most out of your Apple® devices by taking advantage of iCloud service and connecting all of your devices to your new computer or laptop. This fantastic Apple service is designed to keep all of your Apple devices in sync; imagine being able to synchronize your iPhone® device, iPad® tablet, iPod® device and computers.

The iCloud service works by keeping all of your photos, files, and even videos stored on iCloud.com, your iOS® devices and even on Windows® computers. Its ability to share iTunes® files and iBooks® files between six family members through the Family Sharing® service makes it extremely convenient for families. Parents can even track the location of other iOS devices when they’ve been misplaced or when they’re looking for their teenager who doesn’t answer calls or text messages. Additionally, parents can even set up their credit card information for their kids’ app store purchases. By synchronizing your Apple devices with iCloud service, you can prevent data loss while increasing availability to your family members and to the files, photos and other items you need and love.

Here is a brief description of how to set it up:

  1. Make sure your device is running the latest version of iOS software
  2. Turn on iCloud service by following the instructions in the setup assistant
  3. Enable automatic downloads
