iCloud allows users to upload and store the docs, photos, contacts, and emails sync. In daily business operation, it increases efficiency, cut down the risk, and works from anywhere using any Apple device. Real-time data sync allows more flexibility to use the product across the platform. Faster access to data from iCloud make daily route work easier.

Apple iCloud is used across the company when we desire to share files or folders we cannot normally share from our Microsoft Sharepoint drives. This is most often the case when sending to outsiders. We also use it to keep specific files with us on the go. iCloud is great because of its mobility and security.

I use Apple iCloud and have used it for a long time now. I use it to back up everything across multiple platforms. It has my contacts, important dates, photos, videos, and files. It is being used across my company and it addresses the worry of not having my important items backed up. I have had times where devices have failed and iCloud has backed me up and given me the reassurance that things are safely backed up.

As we are a wholly Microsoft for education place, the vast majority of campus is on One Drive. However, our department is almost all on various Mac laptops/desktops and also iPads. Also, as most of us have iPhones, we're all using Apple iCloud in some capacity, so it makes sense for some things to be accessible on what we are already using.

I use iCloud at both work and at home. It is helpful to share information at a moment's notice and have a secure back up of information that I might need to reference as you would any cloud storage solution. Its integration with all apple products very much speeds up the ease of use for all those involved because training time is very low and it is easy for many people to understand how it all works.

Apple iCloud is used for staff members who use their own Mac products with the company. It is a way for us to collaborate without having to teach staff new programs or moving them from the programs they are used to. It is mainly used to sync calendars and documents. It addresses the communication gap.

I use Apple iCloud for quick access to Pages documents and Numbers spreadsheets. It serves as my virtual depository that I can access from anywhere and proves to be very convenient, especially when traveling. Forget about keeping up with paper files - even if I only need a specific document once a year, I can find it with ease.

I use Apple iCloud for most of my company files. Mainly the files that I may need to access when I am away from the office. I have found it is an excellent business tool and has given me the flexibility I desire so I can be out of the office and still maintain access to just about anything I would want from my office computer. The files I need for mobile access are all automatically filed under my Apple iCloud folder, therefore, I don't even have to worry about making a decision where to file something or if I would want access to it later.

We use iCloud as our main source of syncing and sharing files, contacts, calendars, and more. As Mac users, as well as iPhone and iPad users, having all of my synced content at my fingers makes working easier and more efficient, and allows us to work together in automated ways. iCloud creates a safety net in the cloud in the event our machines are unavailable or are lost.

We use Apple iCloud to backup all of our company iOS devices. Our primary objective is to make sure we do not lose contacts or photos, as that is what we care about most. However, it doesn't hurt to backup text messages and Safari data too.

Apple iCloud allows our staff can access a document and edit live so that it doesn't have to be passed around via email, and we don't need to worry about saving the most up to date version or someone being unable to open it. In contrast, someone else has the document "locked for editing."

I use Apple iCloud for backing up my business documents, emails, SMS/iMessages, contacts, photos, and other information. Using Apple products, including an iMac, a MacBook Pro, and an iPhone has some built-in advantages. I can pick up where I left off with all of my work on all of my other devices and have it all stored in a secure, easy to access location. This wouldn't be accomplished without iCloud. We use a traditional server environment for most of our work, but the ease of use of iCloud with the syncing across devices is a big time saver. And Apple has great built-in security that most other products do not.

  • We use Apple iCloud for staff devices to store and create cloud backups of Apple Applications.
  • We also are a 1 to 1 Pad district for many of our students, and we use Apple iCloud in our Middle Schools.
  • Students can easily access documents from their iPad, and the documents follow them if they have to use a different device.

Apple iCloud is used on a department by department basis within my organization. I would say that it is primarily utilized by the administrative and creative production teams at my place of work. My organization utilizes several cloud tools to store documents and files and iCloud is one of the premier solutions in the marketplace. I use iCloud to store, organize, and share with both internal co-workers and customers that use iCloud as their primary cloud business solution.

As far as I know, Apple iCloud is not necessarily used by an entire department or even across the whole organization, but more so on an individual basis. The majority of the individuals in the Corporate office use Apple's iCloud. iCloud allows me to store and sync my documents, pictures, etc... so that I can easily access them on any of my Apple devices, whether I am at home or at the office.

After much debate over what kind of cloud storage to use, we use Apple iCloud to store all of our photos and videos for Tripawds.com and our other business endeavors such as writing, website management and consulting. We are full-time RV travelers and knowing that our data is safely stored in the cloud gives us the peace of mind we need as nomads.

iCloud is used for calendar, contacts and other data synching. It's also the backbone of Apple's communication services with iMessage and device verification. Various Mac and iOS applications rely on iCloud for data syncing and backup. iCloud is used by my team and all of my clients for these services. Basically, if you have a Mac or iOS device, you're using iCloud.

Apple iCloud is being used primarily by department - we use it to store documents, pictures, text, brainstorms, and notes on our personal devices, then share throughout the department to a second party site such as Google Docs or Dropbox. It's a really useful tool to be able to keep large amounts of data in multiple places for safekeeping.

Our company uses iCloud on our employee's Mac computer or Apple iPhone. It is deployed across the organization for everyone that uses these products. As an administrator, I love that it "just works" and provides automated backups of employee's desktop and documents folders, ensuring that critical data is securely kept in the cloud.

We use Apple iCloud as a whole department as a way of sharing Apple-based information without the need for "hard" storage and transfer devices such as external hard drives. It allows us to transfer data without having to first convert it to an alternate file type such as Microsoft Word or Excel.
