Prepare for iPhone 6 with iCloud for Windows

Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 pre-orders began early this morning. Lucky potential iPhone 6 buyers may have managed to get one of the new devices for delivery on launch day. The unlucky ones will probably have to wait a few weeks after the iPhone 6 launch day. Wherever you are on the spectrum, if you’re planning to buy an iPhone 6, you won’t want to waste time fiddling with Apple’s iCloud service.

Here’s how to prepare for the arrival of your iPhone 6 by setting up iCloud before it arrives.

Once you have your device, simply complete the setup process on your device and you will be given the account credentials for iCloud. Even if you don’t have an iCloud account, you can download and install the tool and save yourself some time.
