I just bought my first Apple product (iPhone) a few days ago and from the moment I switched on I have been asked to use the Apple ID and iCloud for pretty much everything.
I have a concern, i.e. if I have an Apple ID registered with my real name, address, etc. will Apple and/or iCloud always know all my browsing data, my emails, email passwords, etc.?
If yes, is there a way to be completely "cut off from the cloud"?
I am not feeling completely secure enough to check my normal e-mail from the iphone until I am 100% sure nobody (at least at Apple) can read it.
What steps can I take to ensure that my data is least exposed to the world/Apple?
e.g. would using fake personal data help?
If you ask why, well, there's nothing much I want to hide except some nighttime activities I don't want anybody to know about - for obvious reasons :-)
