If you need to access iCloud data on your Android phone, you can!

Many of us use different devices from various manufacturers and ecosystems, even macOS and iOS (no judgment here). Whether it's a MacBook Pro that we're editing on or the latest iPhone that we're comparing to one of the best Android phones, we use these devices too. If you also have a foot in each ecosystem, you may be wondering how you can access your iCloud data from your Android phone. It's actually easy, if clunky. Don't worry; we'll show you what you need to do to get the best of both worlds. Here's how to access your iCloud data from an Android phone.

How to access your iCloud data on your Android phone

  1. Open Google Chrome (or your preferred browser) on your Android phone.
  2. Go to
  3. Log in and validate your credentials (Hopefully, you're using some sort of two-factor authentication!).
  4. Apple will ask you to trust this browser. Tap Trust.

  5. Once logged in, you will be able to access Apple's Photos, iCloud Drive, Notes, Reminders, and Find iPhone (or Find My) apps.
  6. Tap on one of these apps (I'll tap on Notes) to access content, add content, or even take screenshots or download content (like photos).

It couldn't be simpler, right? True, this is not as ideal as having purpose-built Apple apps on Android (there are only a couple like Apple Music and the Move to iOS apps), but at least there is a way to access some of your most important iCloud data. I should also note that you can access your iCloud account settings in this way as well. And with iOS 15, Android users will be able to answer and participate in FaceTime calls for the first time.

How to watch England vs India: Live stream Fourth Test cricket online

Having bounced back from defeat with an impressive win in the third Test at Headingley, Joe Root's men will be hoping they can now forge an advantage as the series moves to London - watch every ball of this fourth Test with our England vs India live stream guide below. England managed to dismiss India for just 78 on Day 1 in a scintillating bowling display, but there was even better to come from the hosts' top-order batting, with all of the top three managing to notch up half-centuries in their first innings. Skipper Root meanwhile continued his extraordinary 2021 form, clocking up yet another three-figure score. With a buoyant home side now hoping to carry on where they left off, India captain Virat Kohli and head coach Ravi Shastri must unravel how their attack was so routinely undone with the new ball last time out.
