    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.

    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.

  11. 11
    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.

  12. 12
    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.

  13. 13
    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.

  14. 14
    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.

    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.
