MacVoices #16187: Joe Kissell Takes Control of iCloud…Again

Joe Kissell‘s latest accomplishment is the 5th edition of Take Control of iCloud, and he takes us through what’s changed and why a whole new edition was needed. Joe starts with the benefits and possible consequences of using Optimized Storage, and how iCloud’s  performance is involved, then moves on to discuss changes and enhancements to iCloud’s many services. Included in the discussion are Universal Clipboard, the new 2TB level of iCloud storage, iTunes Match, MailDrop, the new two-factor authentication, iCloud backup and lots more. Apple keep’s adding and re-defining iCloud features, and you need Joe’s help to keep up.
