Apple ID Support
Apple ID Video (2 min)
An Apple ID is the account you use to access Apple services
like iCloud, the App Store, the iTunes Store, Apple Music,
and more. It includes the email address and password that
you use to sign in, and all the contact, payment, and
security details that you'll use across Apple services.
No matter where you create your Apple ID, just remember to
use the same one to sign in to every Apple service. That
way, you can access and manage everything with a single
account and password.
Multiple Apple IDs just leads to multiple problems!

iCloud & iCloud Drive
iCloud mostly serves to back up your device and sync limited
kinds of data to other Apple devices, while iCloud Drive
more focuses on sharing among devices and seamless
interaction and co-working among devices, which means that
data in one device can be shared among other devices without
copying, sending or transferring. For example, you create a
new Pages file on your MacBook Air, put a few lines on it,
and then throw it into iCloud Drive. Then you may continue
working on it wherever you go as long as you have access to
it via your iPhone or iPad.
What does iCloud back up?
E2EE (End-to-end encrypted data)
End-to-end encryption provides the highest level of data
security. On each of your devices, the data that you store
in iCloud and that's associated with your Apple ID is
protected with a key derived from information unique to that
device, combined with your device passcode which only you
know. No one else, not even Apple, can access end-to-end

Use the Contacts app to store information--phone numbers,
email addresses, location, birthdays, and more--for your
friends, family, and coworkers.
Information you put in Contacts is accessed automatically in
other OS X apps such as Mail, Maps, FaceTime, and Messages.
When you start typing a contact's name in Mail, for example,
the email address is filled in for you.
If you have Internet accounts--such as iCloud, Google,
Facebook, LinkedIn, and Yahoo! accounts--you can import
contacts from those accounts into Contacts, so you can
easily manage all your contacts in one place.
