    I think it's something magic that you back up all your stuff from your iPhone on to
    It sort of floats on a cloud until you need it. I'm sure there is a more technical term lol
    It there on your phone for you to access and your email and password make it secure, ahem my 12 year old just told me that.;-)

    Think of the Cloud as a fancy word for the Internet. iCloud is a Disk in the internet which your phone, laptop, desktop can all talk to on which they can store photos, music, contacts and so on such that they can all be shared amongst all your devices.

    So, it can automatically back up your phone for example and if you get a new phone, you can say to the new phone hey go off to my icloud and restore all your settings and pictures from there.

    hope that helps

    Please don't feel too bad about asking the question mate. You are not alone in not quite getting it. Jennifer Lawrence for one, as a purely random example

    Jennifer Lawrence is a lovely young actress (Hunger Games, Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle) who was recently in the news (along with a SLEW of other celebs) when her iCloud was "hacked" and a number of "personal photos" were made public.
