Should I download and install iCloud for Windows?, do I really need it?.
It’s pretty much a thing that iTunes won’t stop asking you upon launching iTunes in Windows. Do you really need it?. Well, I would say, to stop the annoyance, just install it, because it won’t do any harm if you install it and don’t use it, and it’s free.
Same with Quicktime, except, that is a program that is required for viewing specific formatted-videos on your Windows computer, so yes, install both, tick both boxes, just do it, you won’t regret it. With iCloud, you get:
- 5GB free storage.
- Notes can be stored in the cloud.
- All of your music can be stored there.
- Mail, Calendar, Contacts, and Reminders.
- Find My iPhone is accessible from iCloud.
And much more, but there are competitors of iCloud that offer even better deals. I personally, always use Google Drive, because you get up to 15GB’s free storage for all the same things that iCloud has.
In Windows, you should just install iTunes first, then after it finishes installing, just go to your desktop search bar and search for Apple Software Update, and then launch it, and install iCloud and Quicktime 7 from there.
