Apple reportedly willing to pay internet providers to secure smooth content delivery

Apple is reported to be negotiating to pay ISPs for better streaming service. Frustrated with the quality of their iCloud service, Apple is said to be building their own CDN (content delivery network) to better manage pushing out the software updates, apps, and media that they distribute over the internet. But to make that happen, Apple is negotiating with the largest ISPs in the nation to guarantee faster and more reliable delivery for Apple services.

Norway deems iCloud agreement 'convoluted and unclear', breaks law

Forbrukerrådet, the Norwegian Consumer Council (we're just going to call them that going forward) is accusing Apple of breaking Norwegian law with their iCloud terms and conditions. At issue is that the aforementioned terms and conditions reserve many legal rights for Apple, and practically none for the users. The Norwegian Consumer Council has lodged a complaint with the Norwegian Consumer Ombudsman over the issue.

How to delete songs in the Music app to free up space on your iPhone or iPad

iPhones and iPads don't come with an unlimited amount of storage space. One of the biggest culprits when it comes to eating space is music. Sure, the individual files aren't large, but many people have hundreds if not thousands of them in their collections and they can really add up. Deleting music can free up valuable storage space. Whether you're using iTunes in the Cloud to bring down your music or syncing it with iTunes, the process of deleting a song is the same.

How to free up iCloud storage space by deleting unused Documents in the Cloud

If you use an iPhone, iPad, or Mac with Documents in the Cloud, you can use up a lot of your iCloud, you can use up a lot of space quickly. Since Apple only provides a paltry 5GB for free, and only 50GB maximum, it pays to clean it out as often and as well as you can. Luckily you can delete documents and data stored in any app right from your iPhone or iPad, even if you saved it in a Mac app.

Interested in a flatter OS X interface? Look to iCloud for clues

Based on what I posted last week, it's clear that many of you — like me — want Apple to adopt a more uniform user experience between iOS 7 and OS X — a flatter interface for OS X 10.10. Rumors have abounded since January that Apple is working on just that by creating a "flatter" interface for OS X 10.10 (code-named Syrah) that makes icons and other interface elements more consistent with their iOS 7 counterparts. We don't have to work too hard to imagine what it'll look like: Just open iCloud in a web browser.

How to move existing iWork files from your Mac to iCloud

If you've been using iWork — Pages, Keynote, or Numbers — on your Mac for a long time, chances are you have older files stored locally rather than in Apple's online service, iCloud. While those files are still perfectly good, they don't benefit from iCloud's Documents in the Cloud sync service, which lets you open copies on any other Mac, iPhone, iPad you may have logged into your account, nor can they be shared or accessed via iCloud.com. If you want all of that sync and access goodness, you'll need to move your Keynote, Pages, or Numbers files from your Mac to iCloud. Luckily, it's easy to do!
