How Do You Use Your Apple Devices?

Apple i Phones and i Pads are powerful devices with many apps that make us more productive right at your fingertips, such as:

  • Calculators
  • Address books
  • GPS maps
  • E-mail
  • Texting
  • Office tools
  • Cameras to take high quality photos
  • Many other apps …

Your apps and much of their data are stored on your Apple devices.

How to Backup Your Apple Devices

Apple has made it simple to backup all of the apps and data on your Apple device to the i Cloud account accessed by your “Apple ID” credentials. The backup is done automatically by setting an i Cloud option on your Apple device, connecting your Apple device to your Wi-Fi, and plugging it in to charge. This usually occurs when you are sleeping.

Apple gives you 5GB of i Cloud space at no charge. If this is not enough, you may purchase another 50GB extra space for just $0.99 a month. I recommend doing this, if needed.

Benefits of Having a Backup of Your Apple Devices

The i Cloud backup of your Apple device is like a “clone” of your iPhone or iPad. Apple users love their devices and seem to upgrade to newer devices every few years. When setting up your new Apple device, you can choose to ‘restore’ from the i Cloud backup of your older device. When the restored setup completes, your new Apple device looks just like your old one, with all apps, photos, contacts, and files in place! Amazing!

Enjoy your iPad and iPhone and protect your investment by backing it up.
