How to back up an iOS device to iCloud
Authored by: morespace54 on Oct 03, '12 12:19:10PM

My own "safety" strategy is to:

1. Back up the iDevice to my Mac via iTunes.
2. Once in a while, while I'm away from my computer (and preferably on a WiFi network), I go to "Settings" and enable iCloud backup (a message pop-ups saying your device won't be backed up with iTunes from now on). Dismiss and let the backup go through.
3. Once the iCloud backup is completed, turn the option OFF and keep backing up with iTunes once back home.
