Chapter in this post:
I have to admit, the new edition of Anton Ochsenkühn's book about iCloud and Apple ID come to me when called. Basically, I know what iCloud does and what you need an Apple ID for, but how it all relates and which data, who, how, when, where backs up, has been a book with seven seals for me.
Thanks to Anton Ochsenkühn's almost 200-page reading, the context now makes a lot more sense. And yes: You can actually bring together 200 pages on the topic without setting the font size to 16pt or repeating yourself over and over again. There are so many areas in which the iCloud or Apple ID is entangled that it actually makes sense to write your own book just about them.
Note: The author or amac-buch Verlag provided me with the book free of charge. Thanks for that!
I think you can get a good idea of the areas covered in the book from the table of contents.
The overriding topics are divided into five chapters, but under them there are numerous sub-topics or questions that I would like to mention here in extracts. However, it is by no means a complete list, because the table of contents spans almost four book pages and would go a bit beyond the scope here.
If you can't find what you are looking for in the table of contents, you can also look around in the index, which for my terms contains all the important terms on the subject of iCloud and Apple ID and even a few more.
For me, the book is a great treasure trove if I ever want to write instructions on certain topics and improve my background knowledge a little.
As you can see from the other books of the amac-buch Verlag As is used to, the “iCloud & Apple ID” book is also very well and clearly presented.
The content is loosened up with many screenshots and small hint boxes and you discover things here and there that you didn't know while leafing through.
The index is also an extremely helpful tool if you want to see what certain terms mean. Not everyone knows that the abbreviation “2FA” stands for “two-factor authentication” or the option “Mail Drop” offers.
There are some of my readers who don't use iCloud. They can surely save the money for the book. But if you own an iPhone, iPad and Mac and want to take advantage of the possibilities of iCloud, you will probably not find a better reference work than this book by Anton Ochsenkühn. I think anyone who wants to know more about the functions of the Apple Cloud can get the book.
In any case, Sir Apfelot is very happy that it is now on his bookshelf, because readers sometimes ask me how certain things work in the iCloud. However, here and there I can't help because I have no idea where to delete your Apple ID as I've never wanted to delete it.
In the book “iCloud & Apple ID” all these stories are finally explained with detailed instructions.
If you are interested in the book, you will find the latest edition from 2021 with the latest screenshots for iOS 14, iPadOS 14 and macOS Big Sur here at Amazon. A corresponding Kindle version for just under 7 euros there is also.
