While technology is amazing, we all know that sometimes it fails us. Most people have been in that place where your computer or cell phone either breaks or crashes, and they are left crying into their pillow at night because they have lost all of their important contacts, sentimental pictures, and more. Backing up your iPhone is just as important as backing up your computer, probably even more important. Just as it gets put in more situations a day where all of your information could be lost.
So how do you back up your iPhone to make sure that this doesn’t happen to you? There are a few easy steps that will keep you safe against any frustrating situation.
How To Back Up Your iPhone
Backing up an iPhone is easy! We can thank Apple for that. They have made sure to streamline the process in a way that anybody can do it. Backing up your iPhone will keep your data, contacts, photos, and app information safe and sound and accessible from any device.
Here are the five easy steps:
First, make sure that your device is connected to a wifi network.
Find your settings, and then click on “iCloud”.
Click on “Backup”.
Click “Back Up Now”.
To double check that it finished click “Settings” > “iCloud” > “Storage” > “Manage Storage” and select your device.
By backing up your cell phone to iCloud, you are basically copying all of the information to an external hard drive that can be accessed from any other device as long as you have the log in information. Once setting this up, your phone will automatically sync all information to your iCloud. Specifically, when you are connected to wifi and constantly back up your iPhone. If your phone breaks, you can now access all of this information from your computer. If you get a new iPhone, you will also be able to open your iCloud on that device and copy all of the previous information onto your new phone.
Apple makes it so easy that there is no excuse to not back up your iPhone! You will thank yourself later when you drop it in some water and still get to access all of your information the next day.
