How to back up your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch

Backup software creates one or more copies of the data on your digital devices in case your original data is lost or damaged. Different backup solutions protect different kinds of data and different combinations of devices. For instance, through the use of backup and restore App, you can preserve your information such as Personal Data, including Contact, Picture, Music, Video, Calendar, Boomark, SMS and Apps (that is all your installed Apps) in any place of your choice. You can preserve them both at online and/or offline storage.

Three Ways to Back Up Your iPhone

They are iCloud, iTunes, and Acronis True Image 2018. The iCloud and iTunes backup have their advantages and we recommend using them. But for complete peace of mind when backing up your iPhone, also use Acronis True Image 2018 to protect and easily recover all your data.

1. How to back up with iCloud

  1. Connect your device to a Wi-Fi network.
  2. Go to Settings > [your name], and tap iCloud. If you’re using iOS 10.2 or earlier, go to Settings, then scroll down and tap iCloud.
  3. Tap iCloud Backup. If you’re using iOS 10.2 or earlier, tap Backup. Make sure that iCloud Backup is turned on.

4. Tap Back Up Now. Stay connected to your Wi-Fi network until the process completes.

To check the progress and confirm the backup completed. Go to Settings > [your name] > iCloud > iCloud Backup. Under Back Up Now, you’ll see the date and time of your last backup.

Automatically back up with iCloud Backup

To let iCloud automatically back up your device each day, here’s what you need to do:

  • Make sure that iCloud Backup is turned on in Settings > [your name] > iCloud > iCloud Backup. If you’re using iOS 10.2 or earlier, go to Settings > iCloud > Backup.
  • Connect your device to a power source.
  • Connect your device to a Wi-Fi network.
  • Make sure that your device’s screen is locked.
  • Check that you have enough available space in iCloud for the backup. When you sign in to iCloud, you get 5GB of iCloud storage for free. If you need more iCloud storage, you can buy more from your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac. Plans start at 50GB for $0.99 (USD) a month.

2. How to back up with iTunes

  1. Open iTunes and connect your device to your computer.
  2. If a message asks for your device passcode or to Trust This Computer, follow the onscreen steps. If you forgot your passcode, get help.
  3. Select your iPhone, iPad, or iPod when it appears in iTunes. If your device doesn’t appear in iTunes, learn what to do.
  4. If you want to save Health and Activity data from your iOS device or Apple Watch, you need to encrypt your backup: Select the box called Encrypt [device] backup and create a memorable password. If you don’t need to save your Health and Activity data, you can make a backup that isn’t encrypted. Just click Back Up Now.

    Write down your password and store it somewhere safe, because there’s no way to recover your iTunes backups without this password.

  5. When the process ends, you can see if the backup finished successfully on the Summary screen in iTunes. Just look under Latest Backup to find the date and time.

 

3. Acronis True Image 2018

iCloud or iTunes take care of backing up certain applications and settings, but the Acronis True Image 2018 app protects user generated content — photos, videos, contacts, reminders, and calendar appointments — in a more complete way. To get the app, go to the Apple App Store and search for Acronis True Image. If you will store iPhone backups in Acronis Cloud Storage you’ll need a trial or subscribed Acronis account.
