Introduction To iCloud Drive

The iCloud Drive was first launched alongside the iOS 8. It is a cloud storage space provided by Apple so that their users can manage their documents across their Apple device and iCloud.

Therein, proceed along with filling out the form of creating a new Apple ID by providing your name, your desired Apple ID and your billing address. Then, continue by agreeing to the ‘Terms and Conditions and Apple Privacy Policy’ and by clicking the Agree button several times, you would have thus created a Apple ID.
  3. You can then proceed to Toggle On the iCloud app on your Apple Device by going to your Apple device’s Settings and you can have this option Toggled Off if you do not wish to sync your iCloud Drive with your Apple Device. A Toggle On indication would appear green next to the iCloud Option.
  4. When you have created the Apple ID, use that to perform a iCloud Login on iCloud’s webpage – www.iCloud.com.
