Why is this iCloud & iTunes stuff so incredibly difficult to understand?
I have only had Amdroid before getting my iPhone 6, which I love by the way. Just a personal preference is all. I feel that it has more options and just a lot better phone in my own opinion. However, it is a lot more complicating too. My questions are stuff like why do I have to have iTunes if I do not ever use it? I hear that I have to go through iTunes for this and for that. I was told that I. Like use it instead of iCloud yo upload all of my personal things onto it rather than the iCloud. I don't get that as I barely get the iCloud features. I merged everything to my iCloud when I tapped onto update my iOS and it asked if I wanted to update to iOS 10. Well, had I known it wasn't going to be like downloading the other versions, I definitely would have learned more about it. Here is what I did. I simply downloaded everything that I wanted to keep stored onto the cloud. I did not even mess with iTunes. I also "merged" everything with iCloud too. I do not like merging as I have gotten myself into some difficult situations by doing so. Things can get very messy if you have a computer or multiple devices when I do that. I do not have a computer at this time either but I am in the process of purchasing another one as I am not used to only having access to a cellphone. Anyhow, as I was reading up on Apples website, it was stating that I had to have a computer to do certain things. I any issues with my phone thus far. However, I did not do everything that was required for the download apparently. It told me that I had to have two other things downloaded. Such as an Apple Beta Software Program and one other thing that I have written down here someplace. Regardless, whatever it was is stated on the Apple website. Why do I have to have these things if everything is working correctly? I get worried about messing around with and downloading things that I know nothing about. More often than not, when I do this after my phone is working just fine, it has a lot of issues afterward. So, do I need what they are talking about no matter what? If I were to turn off my iCloud would my photos all still be on my phone? Will I lose everything that I download? 8 just feel like there are so many little details about this costly little device that I do not know about and want to know and understand every detail about. I love it. I find it less user friendly than the Androids, however, more challenging and a lot more variety of things that a person can use on these. I just do not know everything that I am missing. Another example is that I have a Google and a Yahoo account... I have photos spread all over my phone and cannot figure out how to combine the
Into one place. They are literally scattered. It's awful. I just want a normal place where I can easily store my photos and albums easily. My phone looks like a sloppy mess and is completely unorganized. Where can I go to a good website that is fairly understandable to look this stuff up at? Please forgive the long post. I am not a dumb person at all. I am just not great with these iPhones as they have so many options and I am never sure whether or not if I am selecting the correct one or not. One more thing... I am a very private person and I do not share anything with anyone that I do not know personally. Therefore, everything on my phone is set to private too. I am very big on stuff like that. Any help would be greatly appreciated. That is, if you actually read this in its entirety. 😕 My apologies for any typos as I am having to type fairly quickly.
