Hi, just a quick question (and warning) on iCloud, I'd google
but my internet
is too slow now. We have been chewing through the data on out data sims at a rate of a gig every couple of days with minimal use so I'm wondering if it's iCloud using the data. I had photo
sharing set up on 5 devices, handy when you take a picture on the iPhone
and it magically appears on the PC and iPad
as well, but...not so handy if it's using data. It only transfers when connected to wifi
, but we set up one phone
as a personal hotspot and share it's internet
with all devices.
I guess I'd assumed it does it via wifi
but on second thought I guess it uploads it to iCloud then downloads it individually to each device. Making a 10Mb picture use 50Mb of data, or a 100Mb video clip use 500Mb!
I've since disabled iCloud sharing, but just wanted to confirm this is the way it works?
