Back Up Your De­vice to iCloud

It's im­por­tant to keep your iPhone or iPad backed up to iCloud, es­pe­cially if you're in­stalling an iOS up­date or up­grad­ing your phone. Hav­ing a re­cent backup is the fastest way to re­store every­thing, in­clud­ing your set­tings, when re­set­ting your de­vice or set­ting up a new pur­chase.

You can set your iPhone or iPad to au­to­mat­i­cally back up by go­ing to Set­tings > iCloud > Backup and tog­gling on iCloud Backup. Your de­vice will now au­to­mat­i­cally back up when plugged in, locked, and con­nected to Wi-Fi. You can also man­u­ally back up your de­vice by go­ing to Set­tings > iCloud > Backup, and se­lect­ing Back Up Now. Man­age Your Ap­ple ID Ac­count

You can do every­thing short of ac­tu­ally chang­ing your Ap­ple ID right from your iPhone set­tings by go­ing to Set­tings > iCloud and then tap­ping on your name and en­ter­ing your pass­word. Here you can up­date your con­tact in­for­ma­tion, change your se­cu­rity ques­tions, and cre­ate a new pass­word. Un­der Con­tact In­for­ma­tion, you can also choose whether or not to re­ceive news and an­nounce­ments from Ap­ple or change your pri­mary pay­ment method un­der Pay­ment. If you want to change your Ap­ple ID, you can go on­line to ap­pleid.ap­ple.com, sign in, and se­lect Edit, then Change Email Ad­dress un­der Ac­count set­tings.

If you've re­cently up­graded your iOS de­vice, you've prob­a­bly no­ticed that your older de­vice still ap­pears un­der iCloud's list of back­ups. Th­ese pre­vi­ous back­ups take up un­nec­es­sary stor­age space and (as­sum­ing you have your most re­cent iPhone backed up) they don't re­ally do you any good.

To delete an old backup, go to Set­tings > iCloud > Stor­age. Next, se­lect Man­age Stor­age. Un­der Back­ups you'll see a list of all the de­vices you have backed up to iCloud. Tap on the name of the de­vice you no longer want backed up, and then tap Delete Backup.
