Apple has implemented a very important function in its new update, but this function was secret, nothing was announced or said, why?
The «One More Thing» that we were missing
Yesterday the iOS 9.3 update, in which we find the Night Shift mode, the Note passwords and the settings to order them to our liking, improvements in battery and performance, etc. But one of the first things I found had not been named, nor had it been dealt with in the betas, or at least nobody had noticed, and it is: iCloud for iBook.
What does iCloud for iBook allow? It allows us to do something that could NOT be done before, although some think so, and that is to store all our PDF documents, epub, iBooks etc in iCloud, directly, as. In fact we can have them in iCloud Drive. This is a very good thing that should have come sooner, and in some situations I have wanted to restore my iPhone or iPad and I have lost all the books and PDF that I had stored, and it was a nuisance.
Before they were kept in iCloud purchases, as with applications or music, that is, the digital store knew that you had already bought it and offered you the option to download it again, but you could not store files and books downloaded from other stores or other websites. Any PDF you would lose if you didn't save it on your Mac.
Apple looks for ways to improve and enhance its services. Both Apple Music that is coming out and iCloud, which offers you 5Gb of free storage and for only € 1 more it gives you 50Gb, an option that I will not hesitate to hire as soon as the free ones are short, for now I can hold out well. To boost their storage service they launched iCloud Drive and they promoted the use of this tool for third-party applications, such as Pixelmator
Between one thing and another, and now with the implementation of iBooks, they will fill up our free 5Gb right away, although, like me, they do not have the photos in the cloud, so they will force us to hire the payment plans, which although they are very cheap, but with many users they can do a very good deal.
End by saying that I don't understand why they didn't name iCloud guidance on iBooks in the presentation. I think it's a great and useful function that I encourage you to discover and try.
