Take Control of iCloud, Second Edition

Take Control of iCloud 2nd EditionThis new edition by TidBITS author Joe Kissell is overflowing with up-to-date iCloud advice for you, whether you are flat-out confused by iCloud, need help integrating iCloud Keychain into your password-management strategy, are running into the confusing limitations with iCloud Photos, or want to understand how iCloud syncs files like those from Pages or Keynote between your Mac and iPad.

Joe walks you through getting started with iCloud (whether you have one or more iCloud accounts), and then explains the key aspects — and hidden gotchas — of iCloud’s core features, all while helping you understand why it might not match your expectations. Among the many features Joe covers are working with Apple’s media stores, iTunes Match, My Photo Stream, iCloud Photo Sharing, Documents in the Cloud, Mail, Contacts, Calendars, iCloud Keychain, Find My iPhone/iPad/Mac, Find My Friends, and iOS backups.

You’ll also find the answers to questions such as:

  • What if I have more than one Apple ID?
  • How can I use multiple iCloud accounts without messing things up?
  • What if I want to use both a third-party password manager and iCloud Keychain?
  • How do I share calendars with people who are not using iCloud?
  • What if I want to make my contacts available on my spouse’s iPhone?
  • How quickly should I expect iCloud to sync my data?
  • How do I configure my email software to use my iCloud email address?
  • How do I add photos to My Photo Stream from Windows?
  • How does Dropbox’s Camera Uploads feature compare to My Photo Stream?
  • Where does my Mac store documents that I save in iCloud?
  • How can I configure my AirPort Extreme to work with Back to My Mac?

This updated e-book covers OS X 10.9 Mavericks, iOS 7, Apple TV, Windows, and the latest versions of the iCloud Web apps.
