Interestingly, I had not used such services before. But when I was faced with an unpleasant situation, I needed iCloud. All because hackers deleted our company's files, it's good that thanks to https://setapp.com/how-to/usb-data-recovery we managed to restore them, here is a detailed guide on how to restore files in different ways

Frankly, it seems to me that all these innovations of new versions of iOS - do not bring anything useful. The only useful feature that once came to the iPhone was the ability to share geo-position with friends. On the https://setapp.com/how-to/share-location-iphone website you can find out more about how you can do this.
