How it works

Mac Format - - CLOUD SYNCING -

iCloud Drive works by con­nect­ing your Mac, iOS de­vice or even your PC across a wired, Wi-Fi or cel­lu­lar in­ter­net con­nec­tion to Ap­ple’s data cen­tres, all the while us­ing your Ap­ple ID for au­then­ti­ca­tion. De­vices run­ning the lat­est ver­sions of OS X or Win­dows 7 or above can ac­cess iCloud Drive, a vir­tual drive onto which you can drag and drop any kind of files or fold­ers to store them. Some of Ap­ple’s own apps such as Tex­tEdit, Num­bers, Pages and Key­note can also store doc­u­ments and you can work from them di­rectly from iCloud. OS X and iOS de­vices can also use iCloud for backup, restor­ing set­tings, con­tacts, photo shar­ing and iCloud key­chain, which, rather hand­ily, al­lows you to store pass­words across all your de­vices to make it easy to log into web­sites.
