Is the world PERFECT?
If you answered YES, stop reading immediately and go check out the great apps on App Store Download. If you answered NO, congratulations, you’re more sane than 99.99999% of the world’s population. The truth is, in the real world, Sh*t happens. That’s just the way we humans like to roll. Problems, Issues, Obstacles, are part of our daily lives. Without them, we really won’t have much to do in this world. Life just won’t be as INTERESTING.
Now you might be wondering: What does the world not being PERFECT have to do with my iPhone?
The answer: Sh*t Happens.
You might be sitting around playing with your iPhone, and out of nowhere, the screen just goes dark. Your iOS malfunctions and crashes, thus resulting in the loss of all your important data. Or maybe something went wrong while updating your iOS. These are things that you simply can’t predict. The iPhone is a Machine, and Machines have a tendency to malfunction every once in a while. Your job is to be prepared, and make sure that if and when your iPhone goes dark, you have all your important data backed-up to your Local Drive or the Cloud, so that you can recover (restore) all your lost data from the backup.
In this blog post, I’ll be sharing a simple method that you can use to backup all you data, and have it at your disposal when you need it.
Thankfully, as the iPhone as evolved over the years, the process to backup your data has become less complex. In fact, you can now backup all your iPhone data with just a Click.
So, without further ado, here are the steps to create an iPhone Backup on your Local Drive and iCloud:
Creating a backup on iCloud is really easy; so we’ll start with that first.
1) On your iPhone, go to Settings > iCloud
Log-in to iCloud using your Apple ID and Password, and select the data that you want to backup to iCloud .i.e. Mail, Contacts, Reminders, Notes, Photos, etc…
Once you’ve synced your iPhone or iOS Device with iCloud, iCloud will automatically backup all your data without you having to do anything.
Local Drive – Backup or Restore your device:
1) Connect your iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad to the computer you normally sync with and select your device.
2) Click Summary.
3) Do one of the following:
Back up or restore from a backup manually:
Click Back Up Now or Restore Backup.
Restore your device’s files and settings:
If your backup is encrypted, iTunes asks you to enter the password before restoring your files and settings. Encrypted backups have a lock icon in the list of backups in iTunes Devices preferences.
Encrypt your backups:
Select “Encrypt Device backup,” type a password, and click Set Password.
4) Click Back Up Now or Restore Backup (below Backups).
