“Take Control of iCloud, Third Edition” answers all your iCloud questions
Apple’s iCloud service has changed dramatically in recent weeks thanks to OS X 10.10 Yosemite and iOS 8, and we now have a new edition of Joe Kissell’s best-selling “Take Control of iCloud” to help you adjust to the many changes. Notably, Joe thoroughly explains the differences between (and how to use) iCloud’s My Photo Stream, the still-beta iCloud Photo Library, and iCloud Photo Sharing. He documents the many peculiarities of iCloud Drive. And he helps you with the new Family Sharing feature. The book normally costs $15, but the 30% MUG discount drops that to $10.50. Learn more about the book and buy it via the coupon-loaded link below.
Other new bits that receive attention include iCloud storage price drops, the Mail Drop feature for sending large email attachments, modifications to the iCloud Web apps, Apple TV photo and music features, and security enhancements such as two-factor authentication, app-specific passwords, and protection from purchasing stolen secondhand iOS devices.
Of course, the book still covers iCloud basics like keeping media purchased from Apple in sync across devices, syncing contacts and calendars, using iCloud Keychain to have the same passwords available on all your devices, backing up and restoring iOS device backups, and much, much more. It’s the most comprehensive documentation of iCloud available.
Thanks for supporting Take Control – we couldn’t keep documenting the Apple universe without you! (And hey, given Apple’s minimal help, someone’s gotta do it.)
cheers… -Adam & Tonya Engst, Take Control publishers
