Apple users are pretty much aware of how frustrating it could be for them at times to use the iCloud service. Those who have regular dealings with the company’s default cloud storage or even those who don’t even know that they are using the iCloud indirectly, sometimes feel some room for a better option. So here are the top 3 choices that you can opt instead of iCloud.
Placed at the top of the list, iWork Suite is Apple’s tool for creating stuff such as presentations or documents. Moreover, recently the company has made the access of iWork free for everyone.
Creating documents and presentations is easy with iWork Suite but it has certain limitations. For this purpose, you’ll need to shift towards other options like Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides or Quip and Dropbox if you’re going to collaborate on a document.
If you still don’t know what an iCloud Drive is, you can term it as the most basic version of Dropbox with many of the limitations. To use this mini Dropbox on your Mac, simply head to the shortcut in the sidebar in Finder. If you want to access it on your iPhone, you need to have the iOS 10 and then you can directly open the dedicated app for iCloud Drive.
Because of the major problems in iCloud Drive such as Lack of transparency, Poor sharing features, and not enough Reliability, your best choice can be the Dropbox which stands ‘The Best’ in such scenarios.
iCloud Photo Library
Talking about only the image collection, Apple has its own photo backup and sync service. You don’t need to worry about which device you are using. If you own any of the Apple devices, your account must have been linked to the iCloud Phot Library which is automatically keeping a backup for your photos. The best part is that if it sniffs space shortage, it automatically deletes your old photos to make some room. Worry not! your photos already have a backup at the iCloud’s photo library.
If you don’t like this particular behavior of Apple, you can shift towards the options like “Google Photos,” which gives you an unlimited space for photos in a compressed mode. Not only this, there are several other features for you and that too at zero cost.
