Backing Up Your Mobile Device

If your mobile device contains important data it is essential that you keep it backed up.

This can be done manually or automatically, but it is recommended to initialize automatic backups to eliminate the risk of forgetting. Manual or automatic backups are available on both Apple’s iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads and also Android devices, such as those manufactured by Samsung and others.

The easiest form of backup sends your data into the ‘cloud’, which is just a system of computers not managed by the companies that offer their services for safe storage of your data.

Apple offers 5GB of free storage for such data and Google is popularly used for cloud backups in Android devices.

You also can back your device up to your home computer. For example, Apple’s application iTunes, once downloaded and installed onto your computer, can be used to complete this task.
