You can make a backup of your device using iCloud with a Wi-Fi network connection and for this you need not connect your device into a computer or even be at home. Plus point of iTunes backup is that as the hard drive of a computer has a lot of space available, an entire phone backup can be stored on the computer without running out of space or having to purchase additional storage. Also backups are fast, as it is relying not on the internet connection but just USB transfer speeds.
However, negative point is that iTunes backups require availability of your computer for plug in and synchronizing your iPhone.
There is also an option to backup manually when you’re on the road and haven’t backed up in a while or when you’ve been working away from a power source (Apple says if you don’t back up your device for 180 days or more, the company will delete your device’s iCloud backup files).
9. To verify that the backup finished successfully, open iTunes Preferences and select the Devices tab. Now, if your device is lost, damaged or ever replaced, you’ll have all of the data that was stored on that iPhone stored on your computer.

In this post, we’re going to examine how much space you use in the iCloud, what you use it for, and if you have enough or need to buy more.
On the page that opens you get a full breakdown of all space used by Backups, Documents and Data, and Mail.
If you need to purchase more iCloud space, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the Change Storage Plan button. On the bottom of the iCloud preferences box a gauge shows how much space you have and how much space you’re using.

Clicking on any of these items will provide more detail or show tips on how to conserve storage space.
If you backup devices to the iCloud: delete backups that are not current and delete backups from devices that you no longer own. If you use Pages, Keynote or Numbers it worth looking at what documents you are storing in the iCloud. Keynote presentations, in particular, can take up a lot of room.
As you get close to the 5 GB limit, you will get a warning message on your device or on your Mac. Until you make space or buy more space, some iCloud services will temporarily be disrupted. The biggest problem… iCloud email routing is suspended until the storage problem is resolved. My advice is to take a look at your iCloud storage situation now and avoid these unnecessary headaches. Backing up your Apple device can give you peace of mind in knowing that when you backup your iPhone all your data are safe.
Since all current iOS devices have capacities greater than 5 GB, it’s easy to fill up that free storage space.
If you’re travelling or away from your computer for days at a time, it can mean long time gap between backups. Here, you might receive a pop up saying that there are apps on your iPhone that aren’t in your iTunes library, which means they aren’t backed up.

You’ll be able to plug in a new iPhone and restore all of that data onto the new device.
For example, in order to save space you can disable photos in your iCloud backup when you have backed up a lot of photos through iTunes. On the right-hand side is a list of all Apps and Devices that are using space on the iCloud. If something goes wrong during updating your operating system or due to some software glitches, you can restore your phone to the way you had it the last time you made a backup. Moreover, that 5 GB free storage is per iCloud account, not per device so users with multiple iOS devices will find the free space gets used up quickly. If you do have iTunes installed already, make sure that it is updated to the latest version. If you want to encrypt the backup (that is, secure with a password) you can select that option to the left.
This backed up data can be used later if your device is lost or damaged or you can move all the data to a new iPhone if you ever replace your device.
