If you want to know how to set up iCloud, check out or guide. If both your devices are already on it, here's what to do next:

Check your iCloud storage

Before you sync, make sure storage is available on your iCloud account.

  1. On your iPad or iPhone, go to Settings,and tap your name at the top.
  2. Tap iCloud > Manage Storage.
  3. You can see iCloud storage details on the graph at the top of the screen.

  2. Tap Manage Storage > Buy More Storage or Change Storage Plan.
  3. Choose a plan and follow the on-screen instructions.

Choose apps to sync

If you're syncing your iPhone with your iPad, the next thing you need to do is sign in to iCloud on both devices and choose the apps you want to sync. You may need to download an app on your iPhone that is not already on your iPad and vice versa.

On your iPhone:

  1. Go to Settings, and tap your name at the top.

If both devices are connected to the internet and you've signed in with the same iCloud settings and Apple ID, they'll stay connected once they're synced.

Turn on Automatic Downloads

Once you've synced those apps on your iPad and iPhone using iCloud, you can also turn on Automatic Downloads to sync other apps found in Settings, such as Music, Apps, Books & Audiobooks, and Updates. Follow these steps for both your iPhone and iPad:

  1. Open Settings, and tap App Store (or iTunes & App Store.)
  2. Under Automatic Downloads, you can turn on automatic app and app update downloads by tapping the switch for each setting.

After completing this step, any app you download on your iPhone or iPad will automatically appear on both devices.
