Backing up your iOS device to iCloud is one sure way to make sure your messages, contacts, photos and more are stored safely. It’s important to backup your iPhone data just in case anything happens to your device. Additionally, when you purchase a new phone, a backup will allow you to restore all of the information from an old phone to a new phone. It will also give you the option of accessing this data at a later date. Find out how to extract data from your iCloud backup file below.
Choosing to backup your iPhone data to iCloud will give you three different storage options. The free option is 5GB and then the paid options are 20GB, 50GB, 100GB and 1TB. Once you have backed up your iPhone to iCloud, it is saved to Apple’s online storage service and secures your data by encryption.
