Is there a really good tutorial somewhere on iCloud?

I don’t really want all my stuff backing up to the cloud, sharing across devices, etc., but I would like to be able to make some educated decisions on how I want to operate my cloud. I’ve never really worried much about it before, but now that I’ve been iMac-free for while, I have more and more on my iPad that I really don’t need on my phone. In addition, I don’t really want pictures from my phone to be on my iPad.

Bottom line - I just need a good tutorial on how to do all things cloud.

Recommendations?

Sorry for the apparent information overload, but iCloud has a lot of features.

Thank you!

I know I should probably search before asking, but figure there’s always someone on here who can point me to the better options. As slow as my videos can be to load, I can’t usually afford to try out a bunch of different ones to find one that works!

No worries! I had the above links bookmarked in my Tutorials folder and I was happy to help.
