iCloud is a service offered by Apple Inc. enabling users to store various types of data such as music files, emails, contacts and calendars on remote servers using cloud computing technology. iCloud gives users the flexibility to download any data stored on these servers to any other device using Apple's operating system, or Microsoft Windows. iPhone users also have access to iCloud. However, if for some reason the user does not want to use this service through their iPhone, they can simply turn it off by changing the settings.
