Apple iCloud

It is great if you are a die-hard Apple user. It integrates virtually every aspect of Apple products among different devices, making it super easy to share things. It fails pretty hard when tasked with other product types (such as Microsoft), and I have found it rather difficult to manage since it seems to take over so forcefully.

Cons

Apple iCloud

  • You will constantly run into issues where iCloud is optimized or available only for Apple's own product line. That's frustrating.
  • Apple's Mail app and service are just beleaguered by the likes of Gmail. Perhaps even Zoho does better than them on the web.
  • iCloud seems optimized more for a mobile user, so desktop apps & services feel a bit force-fitted.

It's so seamless that I can't imagine another product doing a better job synchronizing all of my devices. I simply do not think about it at all. Everything happens behind the scenes and I'm confident that Apple keeps my data safe and secure. I'm a happy customer as far as this is concerned. I have not had a bad experience with this service.

I love that the system is natively supported in Apple products. Once the initial settings are set, no more configuration is required and backups of important data are automatically kept

With all Apple devices, its performance is very good. I can quickly sign in to my account and access my data very easily. In rare cases, It took time to switch from one folder to other, but in general, it is quite quick. Outside of the Apple ecosystem, this software does not work with any other software.

Support for iCloud is great with chat, phone and email support. Staff are attentive to issues and do a great job in supporting users with questions or issues.

Alternatives Considered

Apple iCloud

Microsoft is incomplete and does not offer the all the features that iCloud does.Google offers a multiple alternatives where some are better and some are not, but they do not interact well together and you never know when Google is just going to kill off one of their services.Ultimately I love Apple hardware and its software works best with it. They do enough and have cool features and work together that accepting any shortcoming is palatable.
