How to backup iPhone data!

How to backup iPhone data is forgotten unless you do it regularly.

It is very important to back up to change the model or to transfer data when it breaks down.

On iPhone you can back up in three different ways using iTunes and iCloud, or external memory. Here, we will explain how to back up and restore iPhone data, merit and demerit in an easy-to-understand manner.

#1. Method and features of backup using iCloud

First, I will explain how to use iCloud. iCloud is a so-called cloud service that allows you to move and store data on the net. You can operate with iPhone only, but WiFi environment is required.

1-1. How to backup on iCloud

1. Start setup application from home screen → scroll and select "iCloud"
2. Log in with your Apple ID (If you do not have an Apple ID, you need to register).
3. Next, choose whether to synchronize iPhone's Safari history · bookmark with the PC. If you want to see bookmark page on PC, "join".
4. Select "Backup"
5. ① Turn on iCloud backup switch (yellow green) → ② Back up starts with 'Create backup now' (WiFi environment is required).

When the backup starts, the display "Backup is being created ..." appears. When the backup work is over, the display disappears and the date of "Last Backup" is updated.

When iCloud becomes full, some data can not be saved. When it runs out, it is necessary to devise some data such as uploading some data to another storage service (Dropbox etc.).
