Apple Merging ‘iCloud Documents and Data’ Service With iCloud Drive in May 2022

Apple prepares to merge its iCloud Documents and Data service with iCloud Drive starting in May of 2022, according to a support file released late last week (through MacGeneration).
iCloud Drive and iCloud Documents and Data share the fundamental ability to backup information from apps. ICloud Data and documents was often a cumbersome, confusing experience. On the other hand, iCloud Drive is more unified, with users able to access their files and material through the Files app throughout all their gadgets.
As Apple discusses, beginning in May of next year, users who are utilizing iCloud Documents and Data will have their accounts automatically moved to iCloud Drive. However, users need to manually make it possible for iCloud Drive to see their files once the merger takes place.
In May 2022, the iCloud Data and files service, our previous file synchronization service, will be interrupted and completely replaced by iCloud Drive. If you utilize iCloud Documents and Data, your account will be moved to iCloud Drive after that date.
If you use the iCloud Documents and Data service, you should trigger iCloud Drive by following the actions below to see your files. Upgrading to iCloud Drive does not change the storage space utilized by your files saved in iCloud.
iCloud Drive launched in 2014 as a merged, seamless method for Apple users to keep all their files, documents, and more integrated throughout all their gadgets. To activate it, users on iOS or iPadOS devices can go to Settings -> > iCloud and allow iCloud Drive, or through System Preference -> > iCloud, and select iCloud Drive on macOS.
