How to Back Up your iPhone and iPad

Having a copy or a back up of your device’s information is important especially if your device needs replacing or you’ve misplaced it.

How to back up your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch through iCloud:

  1. Connect your device to a Wi-Fi network
  2. Go to Settings > [ your name ], and tap on iCloud
  3. Tap iCloud Backup
  4. Tap Back Up Now. You will need to stay connected to your Wi-Fi network until this process has completed.

If you want to check that the backup has completed:

  1. Go to Settings > [ your name ] > iCloud > iCloud Backup

Under ‘Back Up Now’, you’ll see the date and time of your last backup.
