iCloud is built into every Apple device. All your stuff — photos, files, notes are safe, up to date, and available wherever you are. It works automatically, so all you have to do is keep doing what you like.
How to login?
iCloud: Go to System Preferences > iCloud.
Enter your Apple ID and password.
Click Sign In.
Go to iTunes > Account > Sign In.
The iCloud account is like a personal portal to several most important features and functions. With iCloud, you can access documents in iCloud Drive, find a lost device with Find My iPhone, and manage your app purchases and subscriptions.
How to log into iCloud?
1. Open your iPhone’s Settings app. The silver icon, stylized like a mechanical gear, comes pre-installed on all iPhones and can’t be removed. If you’re unsure where you’ve arranged the app on your screen, swipe left to search for it.
2. Tap the blue text reading “Sign in to your iPhone.”
3. Sign in with your Apple ID. Your username will be an email address.
4. You’ll see a blank screen with the text “Signing in to iCloud”
5. When prompted, enter your iPhone’s four-digit passcode.
6. Once signed in, you’ll now see your name at the top of the app, next to an icon and above the words “Apple ID, iCloud, iTunes & App Store.” Tap it.
7. You’ll be redirected to a screen “Apple ID.”
5 Ways to Access iCloud on Your Android
iCloud on Samsung
Viewing calendar on Android

Start by opening icloud.com and signing in.
Click Calendar, then select the calendar you wish to sync from the left-hand menu.
Check the box labeled Public Calendar, then click Email Link when the WebCal URL appears.
Send the URL to an email address you can access from your Android device.
On Android, install the CalDAV Sync app.

Open CalDAV Sync and select Add Account >WebCal.
Paste in the URL, click Next, and adjust the settings as required.
Viewing notes on Android
To sync your notes, open System Preferences and click internet Accounts. Select the Google account that’s associated with your Android device. Here, you’ll see several items that you can sync with your phone. By selecting Notes, everything that you add to the Notes app will be sent to your phone. It shows up in your Gmail app, under a new label called Notes.
Reminders on Android
Use Apple’s Reminders app to keep track of your tasks? If you’re using CalDAV-Sync or SmoothSync, you can sync them to your Android phone easily by downloading OpenTasks from the same developer.
Because CalDAV provides support for task sync, OpenTasks simply piggybacks on the CalDAV connection set up by the other app to get your reminders.
Syncing your contacts between iCloud and Android is easy. Open iCloud.com in your browser and log in. Open Contacts you want to export. Then click the gear icon, choose Export vCard, and save the VCF file to your computer.
Next, transfer this data to your Android phone, either via USB or using cloud storage. On Android, open Contacts>Menu, go to Settings > Import. Here, browse for the VCF file and import the contacts.
Start at your Home screen.
Tap Settings > [your name] >iCloud.
Scroll to the bottom and tap on Find My Phone.
Slide to turn on Find My iPhone and Send Last Location.
Locate your devices easily.
You can take your devices anywhere. This means that you might leave them anywhere. Whether they’re in a room or under a sofa pillow, chances are they won’t be lost. The Find My app helps you locate your devices.
See all your devices on a map.
Is your iPad at home or at the office? Use the map to get a picture of where devices are. Some devices also mark their own location when the battery was critically low, to help find them even if they run out of power.
Play a sound to find your device.
When you can’t find something but you think it’s nearby, you also can play a sound to detect its location.
Put it in Lost Mode.
If the device goes missing, you can put it in Lost Mode to lock it immediately and you can also start tracking location. You can also display a message and a contact number on your device’s Lock screen, so that whoever finds it can call you without accessing the rest of the information.
Erase it with ease.
Worried that your device has fallen into wrong hands? You may want to erase your personal data and restore it to its factory settings. If you retrieve it, you can restore it from backup.
