Que Es iCloud

iCloud.com is official site of Apple’s cloud storage service i.e. iCloud. It is originally American and the whole site is available in English language. But for the convenience of the users and customers who speaks Spanish, icloud.com is available in Spanish language too.

Spanish is one of the most popular languages in the whole wide world. There are 500 million+ Spanish speakers in the world as a first and second language. 25% of the population in the United States speak spanish language. So, it is very much wise decision by iCloud to have the website in Spanish. www.apple.com/es/ is a web address to view the website in spanish language.

icloud_ques_es

Que Es iCloud is a keyword to have every page of the site in Spanish language. It is like a cheat code in video games and computer games. But only Apple’s website is available in Spanish language. You cannot have icloud.com or itunes.com in Spanish language. You can only view Apple’s website in Spanish language.

Hope apple.com along with icloud.com and itunes.com will be available in Spanish and other languages such as Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, etc. ‘Que es’ literally means ‘which is’ in English language. Everything in icloud.com i.e. the default website and que es icloud is same. All the features and user-interface is same in both.

icloud login page is same. The only thing that is different is the language. https://www.apple.com/es/ is the web address for Spanish version of apple.com.

iCloud Storage Upgrades and Downgrades

Apple’s iCloud is one of the best cloud backup services among all. You automatically get 5 GB of free storage service when you sign up for iCloud. You need to buy extra storage and upgrade your iCloud space if 5 GB is little for you. Plus you have to keep in mind that your purchased music, movies, TV shows, books, apps and photo streams don’t fall under the free storage.

If you have already bought plans of 20 GB or more, then you can even downgrade it anytime you want. This means both upgrade and downgrade of iCloud storage is possible. You can buy 20 GB plan to replace your previous 10 GB plan. You can downgrade your 20 GB plan to 10 GB plan.
