Switching to iOS 9?



Well…..you might want to wait, as there has been a number of complaints around the world describing the mess that iOS 9 can leave your phone in.


We’d suggest waiting for the next update of iOS 9 is released, however if you just can’t wait, PLEASE make sure to back up your phone so if the most terrible of terribleness happens, you still have all that precious data!


If you have a lot of media on your device, then we’d advise backing up over iTunes. However, understand that if you have photos taken with an iPhone or iPod on an iPad in your camera roll, they won’t be restored from a back up, and vice versa.


You can restore data to a device at anytime with a WiFi connection on iCloud Backup.



Back up with iTunes 
Connect your iPhone or iPad to a computer. Open iTunes. Go to ‘File,’ ‘Devices,’ and ‘Back Up’. You can also find the ‘back up now’ button under Summary in iTunes.


Want to make sure that it’s worked? In the iTunes menu option, go to Preferences’, then click on ‘devices’. If you see the name of your device and the time that you backed up, you’re all good like candy canes at christmas.


Back Up on iCloud

On your iPhone or iPad, open the Settings app, select ‘iCloud’, and tap Backup. Turn on iCloud Backup. The device will automatically update when it is connected to the Internet via WiFi, the screen is locked, and it’s hooked up to a power source. To do it manually, go to Settings, then iCloud, select Backup, and tap Back Up Now.



Save your data! Do it!
