Helen Lee Schifter, the former Conde Nast and Hearst editor may have a degree in English, not computer science, but she is wise enough to know that the cloud is the latest thing in data and photo storage, and if you are using anything else, you are missing out. She uses Apple products, so naturally, she uses Apple’s iCloud for her storage. It comes in handy when she needs access to any form of data on either her phone or laptop.
How Does iCloud Work?
In part, it’s all about the economics of devices. Say you buy a new iPhone with 64 gigabytes of memory. Your alternative, if you are not a power user, is to buy one with 16 gigabytes of memory. However, 16 gigabytes, although saving you perhaps $130 or more, will possibly not be enough. Don’t worry though. For 99 cents a month, you can get 50 gigabytes of memory in the cloud.
Even if you didn’t upgrade your phone for three years, you would definitely save a hefty chunk of change. And if you are willing to plunk down just $4 per month, then you can get 200 gigabytes of storage. Pretty much enough to take care of your entire family for a couple of years.
Works Across All of Your Devices
Helen Lee Schifter agrees that another thing very handy about the iCloud is that it works across all your Apple devices. Whether you have an iPhone, tablet, or an Apple computer, you are free to access your photos, data, and music across all of your devices. This makes it particularly handy as you can access all your photos and music from everywhere.
Great for Business Travelers
Providing it’s nothing illegal like the US government secrets, you can pretty much download anything, including business plans.
This makes the iCloud great for businessmen, as they can store and encrypt their closest kept business plan. This means it may be possible even to not bring a computer to China or Indonesia for business at all. Simply borrow a computer from the company you are giving a presentation to, or rent a computer, and do not worry in the least about your information getting stolen or your personal computer cooking out.
And for lovers on their honeymoon in Cancun, feel free to download all your ultra-romantic and personal photos to the cloud, then delete them from your phone.
When you come back to the U.S., don’t worry at all about customs wanting to inspect your iPhone. Your private and personal memories are stored on the cloud, not on your iPhone.
The cloud is extremely safe, and as long as you never share your iCloud password with anyone, ultra-private.
Take Advantage of the iCloud While Prices are Cheap
Nobody knows what will happen in the future. (In actuality, the prices for the iCloud are more likely to drop rather than rise.) But you never know. For both business, your personal life, and for the family, the iCloud is often an ideal solution.
