Creating a New iCloud Account on Your iOS Device
What is iCloud?
iCloud is a service from Apple that will securely store your photos, videos, documents, music, apps, and more in the cloud on Apple’s servers—and keeps them updated across all your devices be it iPhones, iPads, MacBooks, or even in Windows computers. With iCloud, you can easily share photos, calendars, locations, and more with friends and family. You can even use iCloud to help you find your device if you lose it.
For example, if you took a photo using your iPhone, it will show up in your other devices with iCloud setup and installed. If you have an iPad, the photo will also be available in your iPad picture gallery. If you have a MacBook it will show up in your Photos app. Lastly, if you install iCloud on your Windows 10 PC, that photo from your iPhone will also be available in your Windows PC photos app. All of this sharing is done in the background through iCloud services.
All you need is an iCloud account or an Apple ID. iCloud accounts are free and can be created when you first turn on your new iOS devices or later in Settings. If using Mac OS, (laptop, desktop) this can be done in System Preferences or through Apple’s iCloud Website.
You can use an existing email account to use as your login. If you are using an iPhone, your mobile number can be used. In this case, Apple will send a verification and prompt you to create an @icloud.com email account.

Apple offers iCloud as a free service, you automatically get 5GB of free iCloud storage for your photos, videos, files, and more. Ideally, the 5GB will get you a good amount of storage for safely storing all the basics, like contacts, calendars, and notes. If you need more iCloud storage for iPhone backups, you can upgrade from any of your devices to 50GB for $0.99 per month, 200GB for $2.99 per month, and $9.99 per month for 2TB of storage.
