Some observations from the professionals at MobileREMEDIES®
We have discussed the use of iCloud in several of our past articles. This time we would like to discuss how to add and remove access to your iCloud account by the various applications you keep on your devices.
First, it is important to remember that the more apps you allow to use your iCloud Drive the more of your memory allocation will be consumed, therefore MobileREMEDIES® iPhone repair experts recommend taking the time to carefully choose which apps you wish to give or deny access.
Adding access to iCloud
If you use an app in your iPhone or iPad and would like to access its data from other devices, it is worthwhile giving it access to iCloud. To do this, follow these steps:
- Launch the ‘Settings’ app on your iPhone or iPad.
- Tap your banner where your name is printed.
- Tap ‘iCloud’.
- Scroll down the list and toggle the switch ‘on’ for any app you want to give access to your iCloud Drive.
- The bar will change to green when synchronization is activated.
To do the same thing from your Mac laptop or desktop, follow these steps:
- Click on the Apple menu icon in the upper left corner of your Mac’s screen.
- Click on ‘System Preferences’.
- Click on ‘iCloud’.
- Click on ‘Options’ next to ‘iCloud Drive’. Tick the box for any app you want to give access to iCloud Drive.
- Click Done to close the window.
Removing access from iCloud
If you would like to revoke access to the apps that are taking data from your iCloud free or paid plan on your iOS device follow the same steps as above from your iPhone or iPad:
- Launch the ‘Settings’ app.
- Tap your iCloud banner.
- Tap ‘iCloud’.
- Scroll down the list and toggle the switch to ‘off’ for any app you want to revoke access to the iCloud Drive. The bar will turn white when it’s off.
Follow the same steps described above for your Mac computer, again unticking the boxes next to the apps you no longer wish to have access to your iCloud account. Click ‘Done’ to close the window.
The apps with revoked access will no longer sync across your devices, but the good news is that if you choose wisely, you’ll have a few more megabytes of data in your iCloud storage. MobileREMEDIES® iPhone repair service recommends removing apps like ‘calculator’, ‘news’, ‘compass’ and any other app that is not important for you.
