MacVoices #15193: Joe Kissell Takes Control of iCloud for the Fourth and Best Time

Joe Kissell  has been hard at work on the fourth edition of Take Control of iCloud, making sure that he knows what works and what still needs improvement. Joe reports the improved reliability and expansion of iCloud, the implementation of iCloud drive, and the logic behind some of the iCloud offerings. With all of Apple’s cloud services and initiatives, Joe helps us set our expectations about what should be considered “iCloud”, what isn’t, and why the boundaries can be confusing. Want to get the most out of iCloud? Start with Joe’s conversation here and then get the book and follow Joe’s lead.
