What is iCloud or Google Drive?

iCloud is an online storage vault owned and operated by Apple that syncs your data across all of your devices instantly and without any fuss. Google Drive is Google's exclusive cloud storage service, allowing users to store their media files and documents on Google servers and access them from wherever they choose.

Google Drive is Google's cloud storage and syncing service that stores personal files, Google Docs, Excel, and Slides documents. It syncs photographs, documents, music, and more like iCloud. iCloud is a set of technologies for managing mobile devices, especially Apple devices.

iCloud is pre-installed on all Apple devices and stores photographs, music, movies, notes, contacts, and more. iCloud isn't confined to iOS or MacOS; it's now accessible on Android with no functionality constraints. Visit iCloud.com to establish an account or sign in using your Apple ID. Google Drive supports Android, Windows, iOS, and MacOS. Both have Play Store and App Store applications.
