Backing up your iOS Device

Here are a couple articles on Apple’s website about backing up your iPhone or iPad:

iCloud – This type of backup does not back up all of your data.  This is a selective backup.  You can restore your iOS device anywhere you have wifi access.

iTunes (on your computer) – This type of backup is a snap shot of your device including settings.  You can only recover your backup from the computer you made a backup on.

Google Drive – This is the manual alternative.  Unlimited storage and your data can only be accessed while you have a SVVSD Google account.

How do I choose? – This article is important to read before choosing between iCloud, iTunes backup or Google Drive.  You cannot do iCloud and iTunes backups simultaneously.
