Fetching records in CloudKit fetch the entire record, including downloading any associated assets. This makes it not feasible to fetch many records at a time. Instead, we'll see how to fetch a subset of each record, keeping the overall size of the request small. We'll also introduce paging to request a single visible set of records at a time.

Working with images in CloudKit can be tricky. There's no server code you can add to process images to create multiple versions, for instance. In this episode we'll see how we can pick an image from the user's photo library and upload them to a new Photo record, which contains original and thumbnail versions of the uploaded picture. We'll leverage some helper methods to automatically translate from a UIImage to a CKAsset and vice-versa.

In order to use CloudKit to read or write private data (or to write in the public database) the user will have to be signed in to iCloud on their device. If they are not, they'll not have a great experience, and things won't work. In this episode we'll check the account status before trying to save a record in CloudKit. We'll also respond to the notification to know when the user's account status has changed so we can react accordingly.
