For anyone who takes pictures, writes notes or receives files on their smartphone, it is very important to learn how to backup their information so as not to lose it. Your device can be stolen or it can get infected with a virus or simply you can break it and with no backup, all your files are lost.
What is iCloud?
iCloud is Apple’s storage solution for your precious memories and you can use the cloud to backup, coming with 5 GB of memory for free. It is simple to enable iCloud and if you follow our instructions you will learn how to do it.
Steps and indications
First you need to know that users are able to access the iCloud backup from anywhere, as long as they benefit from internet connection.
Secondly, you need to head to Settings, tap on iCloud and then tap Backup. By moving the slider to the right you can switch on your iCloud Backup.
Thirdly, if a notification saying your iPhone will no longer back up automatically to your computer, all you need to do is tap OK.
Finally, you need to know that your data backup will begin and it will update every 24 hours, if you have your iPhone or your iPad connected to Wi-Fi and plugged for charging. Usually, this will happen at night while you sleep. Most first backups take longer, but once the option is activated, you will not have to wait so much next time it updates itself (in 24 hours more).
Some of the things that iCloud backs up are: iTunes purchased music, apps, iTunes purchased Tv shows, ringtones, messages, iTunes purchased books, videos and photos from Camera Roll, notes, home screen, device settings (mail, contacts, wallpaper, calendar accounts). Enjoy!
