iCloud, a service conceived by Apple, offers an online space for Apple users where it is possible to synchronize the data of their iPhone, iPad and iPod. Using the same Apple ID, you have easy access to your data anytime, anywhere. If you are an iPhone user, in this article we show how to sync iPhone with iCloud. Here is the step by step guide.

Step 4. Disconnect iPhone from computer.
Step 5. After disconnecting it, your iPhone will continue to appear in the iTunes window (under Devices), unless you click the eject button.
If you click the eject button, your iPhone will be removed from the iTunes window, but the Wi-Fi sync will remain on. Your iPhone will reappear in the iTunes window the next time iTunes opens.
