Manage iCloud Drive Settings from iPhone 6
Edited by Grimm, Courtney, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we are going to show you how to manage iCloud Drive settings from your iPhone 6.
To begin, we are going to need to press the Home button.
This is the circular button at the bottom center of our phone.
We may also press the Notification or Lock screen button, located on the upper right side of the phone.
This will take us to the Lock screen, where we will swipe to the right to enter our phone.
If we have a Passcode or Touch ID set up, as we do, then we will also need to enter a Passcode or press a finger onto the Home button.
This button doubles as a Touch ID sensor, and will unlock our phone.
Once in the phone, we are looking for the Settings icon.
This icon is a gray and silver box, with a series of gears inside of it. This word "Settings" will be underneath of this icon.
Give a single press on this icon, this will open up the main Settings panel.
The word "Settings" will be written in black at the top.
We are going to scroll down until we find "iCloud".
If we scroll down past the first, second, third, and finally fourth area, we will see in the fourth area at the top it reads "iCloud".
Give "iCloud" a single press, this is going to open up our iCloud settings panel.
The word "iCloud" will be written in black at the top.
On this menu we will see "iCloud Drive" as the very first option.
Give a quick press to "iCould Drive", this will take us to a new menu labeled "iCould Drive".
This also means that iCloud Drive has been launched.
The first thing we can do to iCloud Drive is turn if on or off.
Turning iCloud Drive off will prevent it from storing data and information in our iCloud. However, if we would like to keep our information up to date with our iCloud Drive then we can turn this option on, or in our case, leave it on.
We can then add all of the different items, games, and other things that we would like to have set up for our iCloud.
However, if we are concerned we are using data on an application we don't use or need, we can choose to turn them off.
To turn an application on or off, simply press down on the white circle to the right of each option.
When an option is turned on, the sliding bar behind the circle will be green. When it is turned off, this bar will be empty. For example, we are going to turn off "Bard's Tale", "Dropbox", "Excel" "Fruit Ninja", "GarageBand", "iMovie", "Keynote", "Lakatoo", "Match", "Numbers", "OneNote", "Pages", "PowerPoint", "Telegram", "WhatsApp", and lastly "Word". None of these applications need to be connected to our iCloud Drive. However, we would like for our browsing history to be saved so that we can later go back and view it if needed so we have kept Safari turned on.
We also have the option to turn off "Use Cellular Data".
In our case, we don't mind keeping cellular data turned on since the only thing connecting is Safari, which will simply be uploading the browser history or our personal preferences to iCloud. However, if you would like this option turned off, simply tap on the white circle to the right of the option unless the sliding bar is no longer green.
Finally, we have the option to "Look Me Up By Email".
We will tap on this option one time, this will load a list of any applications that allow people to look us up using our Apple ID, or our other information.
Currently, we have no applications that allow people to do this, however if we did have them set up, they will all appear here.
Now that we are finished with this system, we can tap "iCloud Drive" in the top left-hand corner to go back a page.
Then we can tap on "iCloud" in the top left-hand corner to go back another page.
This will take us back to the main settings panel for iCloud.
From here, we will tap on "Settings" located in the top left-hand corner.
This will bring us back to the main Settings page, where we will scroll back to the top.
Next we are going to double press on our Home button, this will allow us to close our Settings panel by pressing down on it and swiping upwards.
Then we are going to tap on the Home screen panel.
This will take us back to the Home screen, at which point we can begin using our phone or going back to whatever it was we were doing before starting this tutorial.
This concludes our tutorial on how to setup and manage iCloud Drive for your iPhone 6.
