After turning on the virtual switch associated with the iCloud Backup option in Settings, it’s possible

to manually initiate a backup by tapping on the Back Up Now option.

iTUNES SYNC IS ALSO A VIABLE BACKUP OPTION

When it comes to syncing data between your primary computer(s) and other iOS

mobile device(s), as well as maintaining a backup of your iPhone or iPad, this can

be done by connecting your iOS mobile device(s) directly to your primary computer

via the supplied USB cable, and then by using the iTunes Sync process.

Because iOS 9 is fully integrated with iCloud, maintaining a backup of your device

and syncing app-specific data, as well as transferring data, files, photos and content

between your Mac(s), PC(s), and other iOS mobile device(s), can now much

more easily be done using iCloud.

When you use iCloud Backup, for example, your iPhone or iPad’s backup files

are stored online “in the cloud,” and not on your primary computer’s hard drive.

Because this is the more popular way to back up and sync data, it’s the approach

we’ll focus on in this book.
