ICloud Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
iCloud is a cloud storage and cloud computing service from Apple Inc. launched on October 12, 2011. As of 2018, the service had an estimated 850 million users, up from 782 million users in 2016.iCloud enables users to store data such as documents, photos, and music on remote servers for download to iOS, macOS or Windows devices, to share and send data to other users, and to manage their Apple devices.
ICloud doesn't integrate Microsoft files, syncing feature performance is poor, has storage issues and it automatically turns on, according to Ricardo at trustradius.com
"It seems kind of like a "black box," and is difficult to keep clean. Impossible to integrate with Microsoft files. Automatically turns on, so difficult to keep things straight. That feature about syncing pictures was a disaster. All of a sudden, I got messages saying that my iCloud was full, and I did not upload a thing yet."
Ramy says"I had the bad idea of trusting iCloud to backup my files. I had all my files from university there, with all my projects and all my important things. All gone... this is not only a poor service, it's a plain scam."
Christoffer says"After a complete digital crisis (6 years of important files and documents) because I depended on icloud "safely" "backup" important files and documents..
ICLOUD IS FAR FROM SAFE!!!
TONS OF IMPORTANT BACKED UP FILES GONE!!!
6 YEARS OF BACUKPS DESTROYED!!!
Now you might wonder why?
The simple truth is Apple is removing your files without letting you know...
After I've been testing and analyzing files "safety" in ios or apple environment I came to the quick conclusion after barely a week...
I photographed my new saved files on IOS and then checked EVERYDAY for a week if there were files being removed or missing without my knowledge. After only a couple of days apple had deleted MANY important files that I stored on iOS without letting me know..
For a very long time I was expecting this outcome since through the years files were just missing all of a sudden??? I almost thought I was getting crazy, being extremely aware and backing up files to icloud almost everyday now since I can't afford to lose important information and files that I store on my apple devices.
Unfortunately you can back up as much as you want within APPLE iCloud but is not safe at all!!!
FILES WILL BE MISSING AND FAST!
Now I will get rid of all my Apple gear that I praised for years because of being naive and fall for the simplicity of many apple software and products.
It's simply not worth investing your time with this FRAUD company!
From now on I will get a REAL SAFE BACKUP using hard drives and never cloud again! Also whatever PC with a Microsoft environment, probably and android phone.
Hope that this information will help others that has been in doubt and with the same issues regarding files and safety within Apple.
It was "fun" trying out Apple and it's environments but it was FAR FROM WORTH IT since I'm now left with big amounts of lost data and information that will be extremely hard to recreate...
NEVER will I use or trust Apple again."
Tacao Moura says"Downloading files to a pc is very frustrating. I want to download my library to the hard drive. There is no easy way to do this. Sync just doesn't do anything. This is a very complex, frustrating and time consuming. Definitely will change to other service."
Haak Sten says"I bought a 50GB storage plan, and uploaded one large iphoto.libary file. I can now only see my folders, but no pictures....can not get support on this, as the que is enormous at Apple these days. Very disapointing"
