How to register in iCloud

The iCloud cloud storage system is a uniformly distributed server across the global Internet. In addition to reliable storage, the iCloud system is a convenient media file manipulator when the i-user uses more than one device in everyday life. For example, an office manager uses an iPhone at work and an Apple MacBook-based computer at home, and both devices are connected to the iCloud cloud server.

Since the new user logs in to iCloud and starts uploading personal content to the company's cloud servers, no one else (including system administrators) has the right to view user information.

There is an option in the settings of this storage, in which any images uploaded to the cloud are synchronized between all devices connected to it. When the manager takes the necessary photo for work on the computer on the iPhone, she will immediately appear in his MacBook, thanks to the cloud storage.

The following information can be stored in iCloud:

  1. Photos and pictures.
  2. Videos and media files of various formats.
  3. Music and audio recordings.
  4. Text documents of all directions.
  5. Any other files at the discretion of the user.

Many users who recently bought the fifth iPhone have a question - how to create a new iPhone on iPhone 5s?

How to create an account in iCloud

If you look at the user’s search queries, you can see that people are mostly looking for how to properly create Icloud on iPhone 5s, and how to create iCloud on iPhone 4 for free.

But as regards the issue of registering a bank cell for the user's personal data, there is no need for any financial costs.

There are two ways to make icloud, each of which the owner of the equipment chooses to his taste:

  • Creation of an electronic storage address using a computer.
  • The same thing using the phone.
How to create a new Apple ID account

Option 1: via computer

In the search bar of the PC system settings, iCloud is registered and the transition to creating a personal ID is carried out. The following is the standard form for filling out user personal information in the form of a questionnaire. The system will offer the user control questions that may be needed in case of restoration of lost access to the repository. A prerequisite is to specify a backup mailbox, to which a link will come when the cloud is created: by clicking on it, the user activates his personal Aikloud.


The icloud service has a very wide range of functions. In addition to the usual synchronization of media files, here you can:

  • correspond
  • log in to different sites,
  • get access to different payment systems,
  • back up files
  • track the location of other people (with their consent),
  • look for a lost device.

As you can see, a useful thing, so do not neglect its use. Now let's get down to business.

Via iphone

First of all, you need to create an Apple ID. To do this, open the “Settings” on the device and find the “Enter IPhone” item. Item may vary by device.

On older versions of the operating system, you need to find the "iCloud" section and go to "Create a new Apple ID" in it. This mainly applies to iPhone 4 and iPhone 5.

Next, you will need to find the inscription: “You do not have an Apple ID?” And click on it. It is located below the line for entering the password when entering the account.

Next, select "Create Apple ID" and enter your information. First, they will ask you to enter the date of birth, then the name and surname, email and will be asked to come up with a password.

It remains to enter your phone number and select a confirmation method: by voice call or SMS message. We enter the code in the appropriate window, and the account partially becomes confirmed.

Now we agree to the terms of use and enter the password of the device itself to confirm the actions. If the device had any data or other accounts, the system will offer to transfer them to a new account. If it suits, we agree, if not, then we simply refuse.

Via computer

Account registration via PC is possible. Creation is accessible through any computers, even those who do not work on Mac OS. The first method is for Mac OS.

First of all, you need to open the Apple menu:

Next, select the system settings section (second paragraph) and click on the iCloud icon. Log in to your existing Apple ID account or create a new one.

We go through all the previous steps for entering data and get to the secret questions. Here you will need to select three questions and write an answer to them. It is advisable to write down the answers in order to be able to restore the account if you forget its data.

After that, you need to accept all the conditions and open an electronic mail box. We find the letter from Apple and confirm the account.

Enter the password, click on "continue" and log in to your account in the system of icloud. Now all the benefits of the service are available to users.

Through the site

An account is also created through the icloud com website.

First you need to go to We enter the created account or create a new one.

Enter the same data as before: date of birth, last name and first name, email, mobile phone number, answers to secret questions and other information.

We agree with all the conditions and introduce captcha. Next, you need to confirm your account using the code received in the email. We copy and enter it on the site, after which we additionally confirm acceptance of the terms of use.

Now in any browser, open the site and enter the login information - Apple ID and password from it. Registration has been completed and full access to management, synchronization, and in general to all the functions of the iCloud service is open.

ICloud for Windows

You can also use the service from Apple through a special client for Windows. This will allow you to have a desktop version of the service and not waste time opening the site. In addition, the program runs faster than the site.

To download it, you need to open the official site of ICloud from a PC running Windows, after which a proposal to install the program will appear at the top of the screen.

Click on the button "Download Now" and install the cloud. It remains to log in to your account and synchronize files.

Create iCloud Email

In addition to the regular mailbox in Iklaud, users also receive the following benefits:

  • 5 free gigabytes of cloud,
  • complete lack of advertising,
  • specially made for iOS, Mac OS,
  • There is a function to create virtual mailboxes.

Registration of the iCloud email service is available only to Apple users. Unfortunately, you cannot create such an address on Windows. There are two ways to create email:

  1. On an iPhone or iPad.
  2. On a PC running Mac OS.

Let's consider everything in order.

IPhone, iPad

Be sure to connect your device to the Internet. You can use both Wi-Fi and mobile network.

  1. Open the device settings, go to the item "Mail, address, calendars" and click on "Add account". Select "iCloud."
  2. Provided that the user does not have an Apple account>

The process of creating a mailbox on Mac OS is almost the same as the previous one.

  1. Open the system settings and open “iCloud”.
  2. In the window that opens, select "create Apple ID."
  3. Enter the country of residence, date of birth.
  4. Next, select the "get free e-mail in Iklaud" item, specify the data for the new mailbox.
  5. We select 3 control questions and answer them. Be sure to remember the answers.
  6. It remains to confirm the backup email, if it has been added.

Thus, we created a pure email without the Apple ID account itself. If you need to create an account to download applications from the App Store and use other functions, then we connect the account to the Mac using the system settings and the "iCloud" section.

Create iCloud Mail on Windows

Creating an electronic mailbox on computers running Windows is not possible. First you need to register it through one of the devices of Apple products, and only then it will be possible to use the functionality on Windows.

As you can see, creating an iCloud account for an iPhone is very simple. In addition, this can be done using different methods for different devices. You do not have to have an iOS or Mac OS device. However, to create an email, their presence is required.

To activate Apple ID, connect a free account in the iCloud menu in the iPhone settings.

Create an account on Mac

  1. Open the system settings.
  2. Go to the iCloud section. Click Create Apple />
