Back up your devices using iCloud or iTunes

If you back up your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, you will have a back up copy of your information to use if your device is ever lost, or damaged.

Backups allow transfer of data from your old device to your new one.

Choose a backup method

Before you get started, read about the difference between making backups with iCloud and iTunes.

Decide which method is best for you and follow the steps below. In case you ever need an alternative backup, you can always make one in iCloud and another in iTunes.

Method 1: Make a backup using iCloud

  1. Connect your device to a Wi-Fi network.
  2. In iOS 8 or later, tap Settings > iCloud > Backup.
    In iOS 7 or earlier, tap Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup.
  3. Make sure that iCloud Backup is turned on.
  4. Tap Back Up Now. Stay connected to your Wi-Fi network until the process is complete.
  5. Make sure the backup is finished by tapping Settings > iCloud > Storage > Manage Storage, and then select your device. The backup you just created should appear in the details with the time and backup size.

Follow these steps if you need help making a backup in iCloud.

  6. Just click Back Up Now. If you’re using Windows click File > Devices > Back up (if you don’t see a File menu, hold down the Control = B keys).
  7. You can see if your backup has finished successfully in iTunes Preferences > Devices.
