Welcome to MacFormat, the UK’s best-selling Apple magazine
Apple’s iCloud has had its fair share of problems since it rose from the ashes of the old MobileMe service, but most of the issues have been ironed out. However, as iCloud has continued to balloon in size by rolling in even more services, it’s easy to get confused and frustrated with what Apple has done – but help is at hand with our in-depth guide to everything that iCloud covers in 2015, from managing your iCloud Drive storage to understanding how iCloud Photo Library really works, we’ve got it covered. We’ll even show you how to work more effectively in iCloud Drive on a Mac and iOS device.
Talking of iCloud, it’s been a slightly troubled start for Apple’s iCloud Music Library in iTunes 12.2, but Apple seems to have patched the worst issues. iTunes 12.2 brings us Apple Music, the first music streaming service from Apple. You get the first three months free, so there’s no reason not to give it a try. You’ll find our guide to the new service on page 18.
Also, as it’s summer we know that you might be taking high-capacity drives on holiday, filled with music, movies and photos. Check out our group test about rugged drives before you go (page 94).
