If the iCloud backup is enabled, iCloud will automatically backup your iPhone, if your iPhone is connected to the Wi-Fi, connected to a power source and the screen is locked. Apple will delete your backup in iCloud if within 180 days there is no new backups. In case the backup isn’t working, you probably don’t have enough free storage space. If you want to upgrade your storage plan, go to:  Settings — iCloud — Storage — tap Buy more storage. If you are not interested in adding more storage, you can do the following:

  • Select which apps you want to back up. Include only the apps that contain important data. Go to Settings– iCloud– Storage, and then tap Manage Storage, select the application you want to backup to iCloud
  • Delete unwanted photos and videos before backing up. You can also save the photos and videos to your computer before deleting them.
  • Turn off backups for Photo Library, especially if you already backing up your photos to your computer.
  • Delete old messages from your device, especially messages with attachments. To delete a message, swipe over it, and then tap Delete.
