Nowadays, with the development of science and technology. Smart phones have penetrated our daily life. Phones’ applications provide great convenience to our lives. The functions of these applications are very powerful. We can solve all kinds of problems and record a variety of important information through these functions. But, we are still losing data because of wrong operation, crash of the mobile phone system, failure of the system update, loss of the mobile phone and so on. Data can have more worth than devices, taking which into our consideration, we must rescue our iPhone data. In this guide, we will teach you how to backup iPhone to iTunes. Let’s get it started.
iTunes is a tool developed by Apple. It provides Apple users two ways to back up. It includes wired and wireless ways that will be described in detail as follows.

Step 4 Click on the Summary tab. It’s on the left panel.
Step 5 A Backup section will show up. Tick on This Computer. Then click Backup up now. The backup process will start. A full backup of your iPhone will be stored on this computer.
Although data can be saved efficiently in this way, but it's very inconvenient for you to use a cable. But you don't have to worry about it, we'll provide a more convenient way to you as following.
In this way, we back up with the assistance of Wi-Fi sync. But not all the iOS and iTunes version can do it. Here are some requirements:
①At least iOS 5 or later.
②At least iTunes 10.5 or a newer version.
When your equipment meets all these conditions, we can start.
Step 1 Launch the updated version of iTunes on your computer.
Step 2 Connect your iOS device to computer with a cable and wait for a while.
Step 3 Click on the Summary tab. Next, choose the Sync with this iPhone over Wi-Fi option. Then save your choice.

Step 5 Finally, go to Settings on your iPhone. Click on General→iTunes Wi-Fi Sync →Sync Now options to connect your device.
iTunes is really a good way to back up, but if you want to have more choices. Here is another way.
iCloud is one of the easy ways to help to backup iPhone/iPad. Apple provides each user 5GB free space to backup. After utilizing the free storage, you need to purchase more space. The biggest advantage is that we can back up our data on the cloud without connecting our phone to the computer. So, it’s very convenient for us to back up.
