As far as I understand, there are two ways to implement iCloud: CloudKit and NSFileManager iCloud methods.

I would use NSFileManager. CloudKit is for storing a server-side database that supports queries, indexes and sharing … that's overkill for a simple settings file.

Also, I believe if you use the NSFileManager API the user will be able to see the settings file in the Files app (or the Finder), which could be convenient.
