MacVoices #23092 – Joe Kissell Takes Control of iCloud (1)

Joe Kissell has just updated Take Control of iCloud to the 9th edition, more than another Take Control book. Joe discusses the upsides and downsides of end-to-end encryption via Apple’s Advanced Data Protection, and what it means for older devices. iCloud is integrated in with many Apple services. We also look at moving between different country versions of the App Store and why subscriptions make it a challenge. (Part 1)
