What is iCloud?

    iCloud is a service offered by Apple to remotely and securely back up your information stored on your iPhone or iPad. It means when you change to a new iPhone you can easily download almost all of the content of your old device onto your new one. 


How to set up iCloud on your iPhone:

  1. Connect your device to a Wi-Fi network.
  2. Tap Settings, then scroll down and tap iCloud.
  3. Scroll down, tap Backup, and make sure that iCloud Backup is turned on.
  4. Tap Back Up Now. Stay connected to your Wi-Fi network until the process completes.
  5. Make sure that the backup finished: Tap Settings > iCloud > Storage > Manage Storage, then select your device. The backup should appear in the details with the time and backup size.
