It took eight years, but Apple finally did complete the transition replace the iCloud Documents and Data service with iCloud Drive. What’s going on, why did Apple do this, what might this mean for your business, and what should you do now?

What should you do now

Most iCloud users will find that Apple has already transferred its content to iCloud Drive. It is easy to use and provides a much more elegant user experience.

There are some users, mainly those who had iCloud accounts before the introduction of iCloud Drive in 2014, who may not yet have activated the newer online storage service. This can be a particular problem for users who want to support pre-iOS 8 and Mac devices running older operating systems, as they do not support iCloud Drive.

That shouldn’t be a large number of users, so eight years after the launch of the first and nine since the delivery of the latest incompatible Mac OS, Apple clearly thinks it’s a good time to disable such access – as it warned last year.

If you’re using iCloud Documents and Data on a system that supports the newer online storage system, you’ll need to enable iCloud Drive to see your iCloud files.
