iCloud Drive is among the many interesting features introduced in iOS 8. You can now have easy access to any file within an app through iCloud Drive. This works not just for your iPhone/iPad but also for other devices like Mac (OS X Yosemite) and Windows PC (running Win 7 or later). You can also create folders on your iCloud drive and use them just as you’d use your local folders and files.
There have been a lot of glitches in iOS 8 (that has basically marred the much-tooted experience) but we hope that Apple doesn’t screw up iCloud Drive too. For those of you who are using OS X Yosemite (or Windows 7+) and are running iOS 8 on their iDevices, iCloud Drive can be handy and useful. If you’re looking to enable iCloud Drive on iOS 8 for iPhone or iPad , here’s how:
Step #1. Open Settings
Step #2. Tap on iCloud
Step #3. Tap on iCloud Drive
Step #4. Toggle iCloud Drive to ON.
That’s all. Turn off Use Cellular Data, if you don’t have an unlimited data plan (or if you don’t intend to use your cellular data for iCloud Drive).
iCloud Drive is more or less Apple’s answer to Dropbox and Google Drive which have already been in existence for quite sometime. The sole objective of introducing iCloud Drive is to provide a file/folder platform where users can simply drag and drop any file, photo, data or documents and access files within an app quite easily. Formerly, all files were locked within (and to) an app and it was almost impossible to access these in a file/folder system.
