Can I opt out of iCloud?

Can I opt out of iCloud?

Yes. Nothing requires you to use Apple's iCloud service with your iOS device or Mac computers. When restoring your iPhone to iOS 5 you will be prompted with the screen below. The iCloud opt out simply requires choosing the Don't Use iCloud button during the setup process.

opt out of iCloud iPhone restore iOS 5

Alternatively, you can access and control iCloud settings at any time by following these instructions:

1. Navigate to Settings -> iCloud
2. Switch OFF the features you wish to stop syncing with iCloud and your other Apple devices
3. To turn off backups navigate to Settings -> iCloud -> Storage & Backup -> iCloud Backup -> OFF
4. You can delete your account entirely under Settings -> iCloud -> Delete Account

Just because you don't wish to use iCloud doesn't mean you can't sync in the traditional way with iTunes on your computer. All of your contacts, calendars, backups and other files will be saved locally without being uploaded to iCloud.


iCloud is an inbuilt application of iPhone which is provided by Apple Inc. as well as it is used to create backup of your important data from iPhone but sometimes it happens while connecting iTunes you may have to face errors or other issues while restoring the data so, in this case you can go for iPhone data recovery software which help to get back of your all lost or deleted data from iPhone.

I keep getting messages that my divice doesn't have enough storage storage space and I need to upgrade or backup. My divice says I have 19 gb free. I want to be left alone. I back up my own stuff. I hope soon everyone will just buy an external HD.

Hurrah, that's what I was searching for, what a data! present
here at this webpage, thanks admin of this web page.

I get the same message. I don’t know how to back up on my phone. I deleted most of features today and now my phone contacts are missing. I hate I cloud. Now I have a mess to clean up. They give very little storage so you run out and have to spend money for more. Screwed. Brian

I recieved an update and suprize my biggest fear happened, my date is being stolen by a cloud,
How in the good reason was this implanted into a itunes update?
Never wanted, never will, can’t get rid of it and can only wonder what has been stolen.
Dirty pool!

I have deleted my iCould account on my iPhone5 and still not able to synch directly between my iPhone and MacBook Air. I have tried the above suggestions but still unable to synch.

If you're running Mavericks, you cannot sync calendar and contacts directly via USB.

So, yes, you can turn off iCloud, but you give up calendar and contacts in doing so.

Sort of. It is possible to sync iPhone to Mac via USB in Yosemite but it's not easy or intuitive UNLESS you've never gone to the cloud. But try getting off the cloud...!

Greetings from Ohio! I'm bored to death at work so I decided to check out your blog on my iphone
during lunch break. I really like the information you provide here and
can't wait to take a look when I get home. I'm shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my cell phone ..

I'm not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, very good blog!

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and
gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and
screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be
running off the screen in Opera. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do
with internet browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you
know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Kudos

I deleted my iCloud account and now my Calendar isn't letting me add any events, the + sign is greyed out. I've asked forums and everyone tells me to go to my iCloud settings.

when will Apple realize they don't know what all of us want. I hate ICLOUD, I don't trust it and don't want to use it. But they punish you for not using it. There are so many things on my phone I don't want to use EVER. I am a privacy freak and I do not want location services telling anyone where I am, I do not want tips, I do not want HEALTH info on my phone, I do not want their games, I do not want Pass book and I DO NOT WANT to pay my bills with my IPhone. I don't care if it is the greatest thing ever. I DO NOT WANT IT. so what is the problem with me wanting to delete them, like any other app on my phone. Oh I forgot, you know better. If I can't use it like I want to use it, of what value is it to me. I find that I am using LESS AND LESS of my Iphone and will be looking for another brand next time.

I agree with you. I DO NOT WANT TO USE ICLOUD and I am going to get an android phone next I just upgraded to Mountain Lion and now I can't sync my Notes on my iPhone with my computer unless I use frigging I cloud - I don't want all my thoughts ideas contacts information available for apple to spy on me thank you.

Great day! For a second I thought I was reading what I have thought since the day I first turned on my iPhone. Socially inclined I ain't, but if I was, I would still enjoy the option of removing unwanted, excess programs from a tool that still requires me to make most of the decisions. Thanks for your right-on comments.

Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but
I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about making
my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions?
With thanks

You can opt out but you pay in so many other ways if you own an iPhone or iPad. I will NOT purchase Apple products ever again.
