Now that iOS 11.4 has been released, iPhone owners can enjoy a new feature called Messages in iCloud. This automatically saves iMessages and text messages, including media such as photos, to iCloud. As a result, older messages can be removed from local storage to save space, and everything in the Messages app can be synced across Apple devices.
Apple provides in-depth information about its stance on privacy, including details on iCloud encryption. All iCloud content is encrypted when it's transferred, and the following items are encrypted while stored on Apple or third-party servers:
TextInput is a normal part of the iOS operating system. Small amounts of data are written by the iOS keyboard to TextInput on iCloud to be accessed by devices that are logged into your Apple ID.
One of the great features of iOS 11 and later is the Files app. Saving and browsing files directly on an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch now has native support. Not only can files be stored locally on the device, but iOS can take advantage of cloud-based storage solutions such as iCloud or Dropbox. Individual apps can even be configured to use different locations for file storage by default.
Recently Apple fans found out how to get Amazon Alexa on iPhone. Now Amazon has added more convenience for iCloud Calendar users who happen to have an Alexa device including the Echo Dot, Amazon Echo or Echo Show. Thanks to the latest update, Alexa is capable of interacting with a linked iCloud Calendar account.
