iCloud is a cloud storage and cloud computing service from Apple Inc.
The service allows users to store data such as music and iOS applications on remote computer servers for download to multiple devices such as iOS-based devices running iOS 5 or laterand personal computers running OS X 10.7.2 “Lion” or later, orMicrosoft Windows (Windows Vista service pack 2 or later). It also replaces Apple’s MobileMe service, acting as a data syncing center for email, contacts, calendars, bookmarks, notes, reminders (to-do lists), iWork documents, photos and other data. The service also allows users to wirelessly back up their iOS devices to iCloud instead of manually doing so using iTunes.
1. Setup an iCloud account: My family already had our account established since the switch to iOS 5, but if you don’t, Apple has a handy how-to page ready to go to get you up to speed.
2. Go to iCloud.com, login, and open up your calendars: On the left hand side you’ve got a list of all of your calendars, ready to go. Next to each one is a white symbol with some lines in it, kind of like the RSS symbol but withan extra line. Click on it to proceed to the next step.
3. Enter the emails of your iCloud family: You’ll need to know your family’s email addresses, specifically the ones they use for iCloud (which likely end in @me.com). You’ll probably want to keep this a private calendar too, so make sure that box is ticked off as well.
