Send Terminal output to iCloud

You'd probably have to create a script to squirt the data into a Note, if you wanted to view it on a iOS device.

And an AppleScript within a shell script is a better way of doing this. Writing files directly to the Mobile Documents folder might work fine, but isn't how you're supposed to do it. Those folders are there for apps, not for users to play with.

I think it's a very foolish thing to do that could easily break your iCloud setupů And have you ever seen a "Reset iCloud" button anywhere? Exactly. You really don't want to spend your life on the phone to Apple's tech support line.

Instead of foolish, it might be better to say risky.

We don't know whether it's foolish... yet. We don't even know if it's risky.

As I say in the hint, if you want to see it on iOS, you need to save the output to a folder for an iOS text editor.
