In a nutshell: No, you can't. Apple uses proprietary protocols for iCloud access (both data and backup) so you can't just switch backends by redirecting some DNS entries. And as far as I know, nobody has reverse engineered the protocols yet (at least not the full set required to implement an alternative server-side solution).

I suggest you use the +/- buttons on the upper left. At the time of posting, there is no mouse-input way to zoom the map in or out. I tested it on Safari on a Mac with Yosemite (10.10).

I'm a little hesitant to post this because I can't try it right now and there is, as always, a chance that it won't work. But, because you are willing to repurchase apps, the transfer should be fairly achievable. I would first restore from a backup of your old iPhone to your new iPhone. If you have already setup the new iPhone then you would need to wipe ...

The ics file has an organizer line.

'Documents & Data' was deprecated & is removed when you first convert your iCloud (Mavericks/iOS 7) storage to iCloud Drive. Alternative suggestion [untested] How about - as you ...

To expand on Stuart's comment to your question, I think the question you want to ask is "can I move my iTunes media to my iCloud folder?" Apple has a document telling you how to move your iTunes media. Since iCloud Drive shows up as a regular folder there shouldn't be any problem with moving your media to it.

The file that houses your reading list (and bookmarks) is called Bookmarks.plist and it is located in ~/Library/Safari/. You could restore it via TimeMachine or any other backup you are (hopefully) running.

iTunes on your PC can make a backup of your device quite easily - especially if you have the two devices paired before the fall. If you haven't paired it, you'll need to have at least the digitizer working to tap to trust the computer once.
