Description

In today's world, we use many devices to keep ourselves connected. You may know that 'the cloud' is used to connect our devices, but what does 'the cloud' mean and how can it be best used with our all of our Apple devices? In this course, we'll discuss and compare the five most common cloud services that easily integrate into the Apple device ecosystem: iCloud, Google, Microsoft, Dropbox and Amazon. We'll help you set up each of these services and explain how they can be used for syncing, storing and accessing your media (like photos and videos), documents and other information. This course is suitable for anyone who uses multiple Apple devices (Macs, iPhones, iPads) daily, from beginners to experts. We'll start by defining 'the cloud' and introducing each service. Next, we'll guide you in setting up and using each service in a step-by-step manner - - it will be helpful to follow along with your Apple Device. Finally, we'll compare and contrast each service so that you can decide which best suits your needs. By the end of this course, you should have a strong understanding on how to best use cloud services on all of your Apple devices.
