As a participating MLTI IV school, each teacher and student is provided with cloud-based storage for documents, photos, music, etc.  However, in order for this cloud storage to work, you must take a few minutes to set it up properly.  Let’s take a quick look at iCloud.

iCloud provides access to your data anywhere there is an internet connection.  Your AppleID has 15GB of storage for your use, which is plenty for most people wishing to save school work.  With iCloud you can access your files on the iPad, iPhone, or a Mac computer.  To start synchronizing to iCloud you must first have customized the MLTI issued AppleID.  If you have not done that, STOP and contact Tyler Patten in the Technology Department.

If you have customized your AppleID, and know your username and password, you can proceed with these steps.


To enable iCloud on the iPad:

1.) Go to the Settings app

2.) Click on the tab called “iCloud” on the lefthand side

3.) Sign In using your Apple ID

4.) Click through the prompts that read “Agree”, “Merge”, and “OK” (You can request that a copy of the user agreement be emailed to you)

5.) Click on iCloud Backup towards the bottom of the page

6.) Turn iCloud Backup to On

7.) Click “Backup Now”

That is all you have to do to ensure you do not lose all of your data if anything happens to your device.
