If you're an iPhone, iPad, or iPod user, then no one can stress enough how important it is to backup your data. iPhones have quickly become one of the most important possessions anyone can have, and it is so very easy to lose them in an Uber, get them stolen, broken, etc. Even if you're extra careful with your iPhone you still need a backup so that whenever you upgrade to a new iPhone, you can simply and conveniently download all your data into your new iPhone!
For all these stated reasons, you need to backup iPhone. However, before you learn how to backup iPhone, you need to know that all different methods of backup produce different results. As such you have to use the backup method which is ideal for you specifically.
There are a few things you need to know about backing up to iCloud. It stores all your data into the cloud, and has a total of 2TB storage, though only 5GB out of that is free. If you have a large amount of data, you would also need to have a strong internet connection, else the backup would take a very long time. When you get a new phone, you'll have to download all the information from iCloud using a WiFi connection.
Now that your iPhone has been backed up, you can rest assured that if something happens, you'll still have all your precious data. If you want to view and access your backup data, you can use a free iCloud backup extractor tool. However, if you're reading this after you've already lost data, then know that all hope is not lost. You can still restore iPhone data without backup. However, this whole trouble can be avoided if you just create a backup.
Backing up your iPhone using iTunes is also an effective means of saving your data, however there are a few significant differences that you should know about. Backing up with iTunes would store your data in your Mac or PC, and the storage capacity would depend upon the remaining capacity of your computer. However, this is a good option to go for if you don't have a stable internet connection.
If you would like to access and view iTunes backup, you'll have to use a free iTunes backup extractor to extract iTunes backup. However, you can also use a tool which directly lets you view and access your data before backing them up. This might be more convenient for you. Read on for more on that.
