Problems accessing iCloud storage
Many users believe that the iCloud media library does not turn on due to a breakdown or application disruption. But in fact, everything is absolutely not the case. Access to the iCloud library is available only to those who are registered in the Apple system. However, in today's time there is an unlimited number of fakes of Apple products, which seem to look like real ones, but in fact it turns out that an empty Chinese hack is hidden under a layer of variegation. Of course, the possibility of using official services disappears.
To understand the original offer the seller or not, you need to remember one fundamental rule: products should be purchased only at specialized Apple centers. Even large retailers can sell fakes. As for the inability to connect, this difficulty lies in the lack of a web connection or registration of a place in the cloud storage.
The main purpose of the program
The iCloud media library is designed to store data from all Apple devices in a single virtual cloud. But on the other hand, this particular service can help solve the main problem regarding the situation of blocking technical equipment due to entering the wrong password. Who has not had such a situation? Since all device information is stored in virtual storage, you can always reset all the options and device settings, thereby restoring the gadget.
So, the media library to some extent helps to prevent blocking devices and continue to use the gadget. And the rest of the possibilities concerning the free transfer of data, their editing and publication in social networks - all this is only a pleasant addition to the main purpose.
Media library system requirements
The conditions for the normal functioning of the program are: the presence of a licensed device and an Internet connection. Still there is a requirement that is to register a profile. Regarding the web: the connection should be provided by the cellular operator, which can tell you more about the possibilities of tariff and traffic on the web.It has already been said about profile registration that registration is supported only by a licensed device.
Deleting iCloud library
Disabling the program will not be difficult. Make it as easy as activating a supplement. You just need to go to the smartphone menu, find the iCloud setting and redirect the slider to the side off. After that, the device will not be synchronized with the cloud storage, which will allow you to store data on your own smartphone.
How to disable the iCloud library is understandable, but it’s not advisable to implement the instruction in practice. The media library carries a lot of necessary functions that will definitely come in handy to any user.
Is there a future for iCloud?

About the size of the storage, Apple has already embodied its plans, however, the expansion is not free.
The decision nevertheless always remains for the user. If developers see that their software is being actively implemented, then, of course, they will be interested in its further development and advancement.And whether to become a user of the iCloud library or not is up to the user.
