How to Sync Your iPhone and iPad?

- Advertisement -

A while ago, the only way to sync your iPad and iPhone was to use iTunes on your computer. But this process is now much more comfortable with the help of iCloud. iCloud which was introduced in 2011, it allows you to store data like documents, music, photos on Apple’s servers. You can also use and download the data available on the platform onto iOS, macOS and Windows devices.

The service also enables you to backup iOS devices directly if you so choose to use it for setup and restore purposes. Your data stays secure both when it’s in transit and storage. The specific tokens that are used for the authentication of data and the end-to-end encryption all contribute to protecting particular information.

  2. Select iCloud >> Manage Store

On the source device:

  1. Go to the Settings, now, click on (Your Name) > iCloud. Then choose iCloud Backup at the bottom of the list.
  2. Make sure that the iCloud Backup toggle is switched on and then click on the Back up Now button.

  3. Then select the most recent backup available.

  2. While in the Settings app on any of your logged in devices, tap on “Your Name” >> iCloud
  3. Then disable the apps or the categories that you don’t want to sync. This’ll ensure that the changes that are made on this device will not affect the other Apple devices.
  4. If you so much wish to continue with this, repeat steps 1 – 3 on your other devices as well.

Some apps in the App store make use of iCloud to store their data. This makes it very easy to sync information across various devices when you install the same app.

iCloud also makes it very easy and smooth to set up a new device or restore data on a new device or restore data on an existing device. All you have to do is to navigate to Settings, tap on your name, choose iCloud and then choose iCloud Backup. Tapping the toggle will activate it.
