iCloud: Many Uses, One Storage Space
As you’ve discovered in this chapter, iCloud is much more than just a typical cloud-based file-sharing service. However, after you set up your free iCloud account, you can choose which of iCloud’s features and functions you want to utilize from within Settings on each of your device(s).
You are not required to use all of iCloud’s various features. You can turn on only those features you believe are beneficial to you, based on how you typically use your iPhone and/or iPad, and what content, data, and information you want to synchronize or back up to your iCloud account.
