apps you use most. It’s also where you can open System Preferences,
which lets you customize your desktop and other settings on your iMac.
Click the Finder icon to quickly get to all your les and folders.
iCloud stores your music, photos, mail, and more. And it wirelessly pushes
them to your Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and even your PC. All without
docking or syncing. So when you buy a song on one device, it’s automatically
downloaded to all your others. And with Photo Stream, your latest photos
appear everywhere you want to see them. To customize your iCloud settings,
open the Apple menu, choose System Preferences, and click iCloud. Then sign
in with your Apple ID and choose the iCloud features you want to use.
