Photos With iCloud

  • By Integr8

There are numerous aspects to the iCloud service.  It’s becoming more and more difficult to simply describe what iCloud does as a whole without causing even more confusion.  In order to explain iCloud as best I can, I am writing a series of posts to cover the numerous features in more depth.  I have found the majority of people I’ve helped describe their photos as being the most valuable piece of data on their iPhones, iPads, iPod Touches and their computers.  With this being the case, I will start the series off with how the Photos feature in iCloud works.

Sync And Back-up With iTunes

In a previous post, I covered the inner workings of iCloud. I explained that iCloud consists of both syncing and backup services. You also learned the difference between the two services. If you need some clarification on the topic, I encourage you to check out, Syncing and Backing Up With iCloud, prior to venturing too far into this post.

In this post we will cover how iTunes syncs and backs up your iOS devices, what data is synced, what data is backed up, where this information is stored, and I will include some important pointers about syncing using iTunes. Keep in mind, this isn’t a step by step tutorial but instead, it’s meant to work in conjunction with, Syncing and Backing Up With iCloud, to help you make the decision on how to best protect your data.

Sync And Back-up With iCloud

iCloud has now been around for quite some time but I still get questions about it all the time. These questions are valid and incredibly important to have the answers to. This post will cover the inner workings of iCloud, explaining how it works, what data is and is not backed up.

The overall explanation of iCloud is that it’s a service offered by Apple that can back up some data from your iOS devices while syncing other data across most of your Apple devices. All of this data is stored securely on Apples servers for you to access at a later time, if needed. You can back up your devices over a Wifi network either manually, or automatically. iCloud syncs your data not included in a backup over WiFi or a cellular internet connection, in real time.

What’s Your Backup Plan?

SafeNo one can deny that we are now, well into the digital age. You store contacts, calendars, emails, passwords, documents, photos, videos, and countless other important data on our computers and mobile devices. I have already covered the topic of backing up information found on our iPads, iPods, and iPhones, and in this post, I’ll cover what you need to think about to create the best backup plan possible.

To put the importance of a proper backup plan into perspective, here is a list of a fraction of the things that can happen to a computer:

• Theft / Loss
• Accidental damage
• Something in the software becomes corrupt over time
• Important photos and documents are accidentally thrown in the trash
• Hardware failure
