iCloud Drive tips & tricks
Get more out of iCloud Drive with these essential tips
Control the f low of data
If you’re on a contract with a limited data allowance, you need to keep an eye on which of your apps use iCloud Drive. In Settings > iCloud > iCloud Drive you can stop individual apps using Drive altogether, but it’s better to scroll to the bottom of the list and turn off Use Mobile Data to restrict all apps to only accessing iCloud Drive over Wi-Fi, which is usually unmetered, or at least more generously provisioned. This is particularly useful if you’re roaming on a foreign network where higher data charges and lower caps will almost always apply. Remember, you can review how much mobile data apps have used by scrolling down in Settings > Mobile, and restrict them to Wi-Fi, though for all communication, not just Drive.
