How to export all your iCloud contacts with iCloud.com

iCloud can keep all your contacts in sync across all your devices and on the web. Not only that, iCloud gives you the option to export your contacts right from iCloud.com. That's convenient for anyone who is adding new email services, switching services, or simply wants a local backup for extra peace-of-mind.

Once downloaded, you'll be able to import or upload the standard .vcf file type to any app or service that supports it.

How to remove an iPhone, iPad, or Mac from Find My iPhone and iCloud

Find My iPhone and iCloud work together so you can keep track of all your iPhones, iPads, and Macs, all in one place. If you're upgrading to a new device, trading in your existing one, or even selling it, however you'll want to make sure you completely remove it from Find my iPhone before letting it out of your possession. This ensures the new owner can't access your data and that they'll be able to link the device in question to their own iCloud account.

How to copy/paste between your Macs and iOS devices

A few weeks ago, I put a call out on Twitter for Continuity-based copy/paste apps:

Since 2010, I'd been using Syncopy to sync clipboards between my Macs; unfortunately, the app had been virtually untouched since its release, and it got buggier with every OS X release. And that's not even talking about its iOS support, which was minimal and very quickly outmoded.

So, 2015 around the corner. Time for a new app to sync my clipboard. What better resource to turn to than Twitter? And though I didn't find a Continuity-based app, the iCloud-based ones I did find are pretty fantastic.

Disconnecting from iCloud is scarier than it should be

As a long time user of Apple's cloud services dating back to iTools (and even dabbling with AppleLink back in the day), I just assumed that most people used iCloud. Until I started working at an Apple reseller and helping people with their Macs and iOS devices. And that's when I discovered that a lot of people don't. What's more, if they do start using iCloud and later change their minds, Apple makes decoupling from the service absolutely terrifying.

How to set up and use iCloud mail, contacts, calendars, and more

iCloud includes push email, calendaring, and contact services. That means whenever you get an email, it's immediately made available on all your devices. Whenever you make or change an appointment on your iPhone, it instantly shows up in your Calendar app on your iPad and Mac. Whenever you add or change contact information, its reflected in the contacts on all of your devices. iCloud will also sync Bookmarks, Notes, and Reminders. You're prompted to set all this up when you first set up your iPhone or iPad, but if you chose not to, it's never too late. You can also set it up at any time!
