Nearly half of iPhone users are uncomfortable storing personal data on iCloud — Nearly half of iPhone users have little or no confidence in storing their personal information on iCloud, according to a survey of 1001 iPhone users conducted by Clutch, a business-to-business (B2B) ratings and reviews firm. [I have lots of confidence in Apple’s capacity and security, but very little confidence in using a service connecting to New Zealand by a cable coming in from the west and another from the east under the sea in a country prone to volcanos and earthquakes. So I stick to my free iCloud 5GB, which I carefully manage, and only use it for the basics like Contacts, which iCloud handles automatically.]

iMazing 2.2 finally makes it easy to swallow photos between iOS and macOS — The iPhone is great for taking pictures, and the iPad gorgeous to showcase them.
