  • iCloud: Syncing

    Posted October 12, 2011 - 2:42 pm

    Once you have iCloud set up on your devices, you can take advantage of the service's syncing capabilities. You'll be able to access your contacts, calendars, mail, documents, photos, and more across all your devices and on the Web. The syncing process on iCloud, however, is different than the iTunes syncing process Apple users have become familiar with. With iCloud, your data is seamlessly pushed across all of your devices; you won't actively have to choose when you want to sync your device. Instead, your data is automatically stored onto iCloud, and your iOS devices and computers collectively sync to and pull information from this central server on a regular basis, keeping everything up to date.
