Safely store your photos and videos, documents, and more in iCloud so they’re available even if you lose your iPhone.
Set up iCloud. If you haven’t already signed in with your Apple ID, go to Settings > Sign in to your iPhone. If you don’t have an Apple ID, you can create one.
Content stored in iCloud is pushed wirelessly to your other devices where you’re signed in to iCloud with the same Apple ID.
iCloud is available on devices with iOS 5 or later, on Mac computers with Mac OS X 10.7.5 or later, and on PCs with iCloud for Windows 5 or later (Windows 7 or later is required). You can also sign in to iCloud.com from any Mac or PC to access your iCloud information and features like Photos, Find My iPhone, Mail, Calendar, Contacts, iWork for iCloud, and more.
Note: iCloud may not be available in all areas, and iCloud features may vary by area. For more information, go to the iCloud website.
