Learn all about iPad syncing features available on your tablet in this free lesson.
You can sync your iPad wirelessly to iCloud, which will work in the background to sync important information between your mobile devices. For example, you could purchase a song in iTunes on your iPad, then listen to it on your computer. Or you could create a to-do list on your computer, then keep up with it on your iPad.
When you sync your iPad with iCloud, you gain access to several different features, including:
You can use these features on your iPad and other devices, including an iPhone, Mac, or PC. Review the full list of iCloud Features from Apple to learn more.
If you want to use iCloud to sync information between your other devices (like your iPhone, iPod Touch, Mac, or PC), you'll also need to set up iCloud on these devices. Review the instructions below as needed.
If you purchase something on another device from the iTunes Store or App Store, you may want it to appear automatically on your iPad. To enable this feature, open Settings, tap iTunes & App Store, then turn on the Music, Apps, and Books controls.
Even if you don't have any of your devices, you can still view your important iCloud information online. Simply go to www.iCloud.com and sign in with your Apple ID. From here, you'll be able to view your calendar, locate your device, and perform other functions.
