How to Manually Backup your iPhone to iCloud.

In this post I will show how to make a manual backup of your iPhone to iCloud. 

If you have set your iPhone to backup to iCloud it will make a backup automatically every time your phone is plugged in and is connected to a wifi network. 

Besides having the auto backup you can force a manual back up at any time from your phone.

This can be useful when it comes round to updating iOS and you want to make a last minute upto date backup before you upgrade your phones software. 

If you open the Storage & Backup setting on the iPhone (I’ll show you how in just a minute) you can see the date and time of the last iCloud backup your phone made and there is also an option to back up now. 

! Before you start backing up your phone please make sure you are connected to wifi, plug your phone into power or check that you have sufficient battery power to complete the backup. 

To manually back up your phone,
  1. Open Settings
  2. Swipe down and select iCloud
  3. Swipe down and select Storage & Backup
  4. Swipe down and select Back Up Now 

Your phone will now backup to iCloud.

I hope this helps, and thanks for reading.
