iCloud Drive - what it does, how it works

Recommended Posts


Here’s what iCloud Drive does:

• Store and access all of your documents in one place from any of your devices

• Keep files and folders up to date across all your devices

• Create new files and folders from iCloud-enabled apps

• Work on the same file across multiple apps


Here’s how you access your files in iCloud Drive:

• Using any supported web browser*, you can go to iCloud Drive or iWork for iCloud (Pages, Numbers, and Keynote) at iCloud.com. In iWork for iCloud, you can find your Pages, Numbers, and Keynote files

• On your Mac with OS X Yosemite, you can go to iCloud Drive in Finder

• On a PC with Windows 7 or later and iCloud for Windows, you can go to iCloud Drive in File Explorer

• On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 8, you can access your files from Apple apps like Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, or any apps that support iCloud Drive


What does not work:

- unlike on Mac and the PC, where iCloud Drive can be used as just another storage device, is not available on iOS devices.

- there is no shared storage space that allows sharing files between Mac, Windows and iOS devices.

- THERE SHOULD BE - but somehow, there isn't.ImageUploadedByTapatalk1426386531.673404.jpg
