Backing up your iPhone to iTunes or iCloud

To back up your phone to iTunes or iCloud do the following:

Back up to iCloud

If you’re using iCloud, it can automatically back up your data. Use these steps to check your iCloud backup and make sure that it’s up to date:

  1. Tap Settings > Profile Name> iCloud > iCloud Backup. If you’re using iOS 7 or earlier, tap Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup.
  2. Make sure iCloud Backup is on.
  3. Click "Back Up Now"

Restore from an iCloud backup

If you have a new iOS device, or if you need to restore your iOS device to resolve an issue, use these steps:

  1. Follow the steps in the iOS Setup Assistant until you see the set up screen.
  2. Select Restore from iCloud Backup.
  3. Select a backup.

You can go through the iOS Setup Assistant again by erasing all the content on the device. Just tap Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings. This will remove all content from your device, so do this only if you already have a backup. The iOS Setup Assistant is the only way to restore a backup.

Use iTunes

You can use iTunes to back up and restore your content on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

To check that the backup finished successfully, open iTunes Preferences and select the Devices tab. You’ll see the name of the device along with the date and time iTunes created the backup.
