Is your iPhone set to back up automatically to iCloud?
If your phone is lost or stolen, or you drop it in the toilet (I haven’t done that yet but I know it will happen one day), wouldn’t it be great to just go to the Apple Store, buy a new iPhone, enter your iCloud account, and boom! You are back in business!
Here’s how to check your iPhone is backing up:
- On your iPhone, go to Settings > iCloud.
- Scroll down to Storage & Backup, and click it.
- At the bottom, see if iCloud Backup is turned on. If it’s not, turn it on! (It will warn you if you need more storage space.)
Don’t forget your device needs to be on a wifi network, and plugged in, and locked for it to back up. So make sure this happens regularly.
