So this is our second post in this guide on managing your iCloud Storage. Let’s start:
How to Sync App data with iCloud?
- Go to Settings on your iPhone or iPad.
- Tap on your Apple ID at the top and then tap on iCloud.
- Tap the switches next to the apps to decide whether to keep it synced with iCloud or not.
- It is time for you to now decide what do you want to do with the existing app data.
- If you want to keep data, tap on Keep on my iPhone. If you want to delete it, tap on Delete from My iPhone to get rid of it.
Make sure that only important data gets uploaded on iCloud so that unnecessary files don’t take up the valuable and limited storage space.
Backup of Third-party app data
Please note that not all third-party apps support iClouds storage. You can still turn them off in the same way as I mentioned above.
If you want to disable all third party apps, tap on the button next to iCloud Drive. iCloud Drive acts as a gatekeeper for all third party apps, pages, keynotes as well as numbers. Please note that once you disable iCloud Drive, you won’t be able to work on or access shared files.
How to set up iCloud Keychain
Through Keychain, Apple has tried to bring the password management to mainstream. Though it offers simple functions like a password manager i.e. creating a master password and then using it to access the other accounts, it also works in collaboration with Safari to provide autofill services. This is how you can set up iCloud Keychain on your device:
- Open Settings on your phone, tap on your Apple ID and then open iCloud.
- If you scroll down, you will find an option called Keychain.
- Tap on the switch next to the Keychain and set it as On.
- It will ask you to enter you Apple ID password, do enter.
- If this is the first time you are setting up, it will ask you to set up a master password. (Skip step-6).
- If you have used Keychain before, it will then prompt you to enter your current master password.
- It will also give you an option to verify a new device after the creation of a master password.
