Back up, back up, back up!
I realize a lot of people won’t be able to back up their iPhone to iCloud without a little work. You might see this message on your iOS device, “This iPhone cannot be backed up because there is not enough iCloud storage available.”
I realize that the idea of paying Apple more money on top of what we already spend on devices, accessories and AppleCare doesn’t sit well with a lot of people. But if you lost your iPhone, got a new one to replace it and someone told you that you could download a backup of all of the data from your lost phone for just $12, you’d probably say yes. And that’s how much extra storage on iCloud costs a year.
Remember iTunes? Good ol’ iTunes. If you’re running MacOS Mojave (10.14 or earlier) or you’re on a PC, you can just plug your phone into your computer and back it up to iTunes instead of using iCloud.
MacDailyNews Take: And, with macOS Catalina, we’l be able to use Finder to back up as iTunes fades away.
