(music playing) Hi! I am Christopher Breen. Welcome to Up and Running with the iCloud. In this course, I'm going to show you how to get the most out of Apple's syncing and light storage service, iCloud. We'll go over syncing and accessing your data, so that you can find it on all your compatible devices, including your Mac, or Windows PC, and your iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. And exactly what might that data be? Well, that would include your e-mail, your contacts, calendars, notes, bookmarks, pictures, and purchased music, e-books, movies, and TV shows, and apps.
I'll also give you some pointers on iCloud's unexpected features, including Find My iPhone, and shared photo streams. Now let's get started.
