All About iCloud - 1 class iCloud securely stores your photos, videos, documents, music, apps, and more — and keeps them updated across all your devices so you always have access to what you want, wherever you want it. iCloud also includes services such as backup, Find my iPhone, and secure password syncing. Even if you have only one Apple device, iCloud can be a vital service for you. Bring your Macs, iPads, and iPhones and we’ll make sure they’re set up properly and ready to go. Note: Students should update their devices to the most recent macOS and iOS versions before class. 246320 M 9/10 9:30-11:30am Rm 110 Reg $20/Seniors $18 Matthews 246322 T 11/13 9:30-11:30am Rm 110 Reg $20/Seniors $18 Matthews "NEW" Problem?
