No, you don't need a Mac. Just an Apple id. The purpose of iCloud is to sync all of your Apple devices (iPhone, Mac, iPad, etc.) and allow content to be accessed from any device.

I just wanted to share a little techy organization tip with ya! I hope you enjoyed! Let me know if you're inspired to try it out. I definitely haven't found anything that I like using more than this. It's simple, everything's in one place, and it works.
Happy Tuesday everyone!
