The most straightforward way to link content between your iPhone and iPad is with iCloud. When you enable the iCloud service on both the iPhone and iPad, you can automatically share content between devices. You can also link other iOS devices to iCloud to propagate your content to all of your devices. All devices must use the same Apple ID in iCloud in order to share content. Data is automatically synced to iCloud whenever your iOS devices are connected to the Internet, so your iPhone and iPad exchange data in real time.
