iCloud is a cloud storage service Apple Inc. unveiled in 2011, which offers users a free storage of 5GB to store/backup data like documents, photos, and music on remote servers for download to iOS, Macintosh or Windows devices, to manage their Apple devices if lost or stolen, and to share data with other users.
Switched from iPhone 5 to a new iPhone 6? Or simply did something silly to delete the important photos in your Apple device? iCloud makes it possible to retrieve all the most important data in your iPhone, from your photos and music to your personal and business documents. But you cannot do a selective iCloud restore - it's all or nothing. You can't selectively restore aspects of an iCloud backup. Once the restoration starts, all data in iCloud backup file will be synced to your iPhone. And that'll be a big trouble if you lost your iPhone or bought a new iPhone and want to restore photos from iCloud Backup File alone.
