Manage Apple ID and iCloud settings on iPhone

Your Apple ID is the account you use to access Apple services such as the App Store, the iTunes Store, Apple Books, Apple Music, FaceTime, iCloud, iMessage, and more.

Use iCloud to securely store your photos, videos, documents, music, apps, and more—and keep them updated across all your devices. 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 iPhone if you lose it.

iCloud provides you with a free email account and 5 GB of storage for your mail, documents, photos and videos, and backups. Your purchased music, apps, TV shows, and books don’t count against your available storage space. You can upgrade your iCloud storage right from iPhone.

Note: Some iCloud features have minimum system requirements. The availability of iCloud and its features varies by country or region.
