What are the ways to do iPhone backup?

You can backup your iphone in many ways. Different solutions are available, iCloud backup extractor and Itunes are offered by apple, other backup methods from third-party vendors. Both iCloud backup extractor and Itunes have advantages and disadvantages, but they are generally recommended.

IPhone backup to the icloud

With iPhones iCloud backup, you can automatically backup data to the cloud. All you need is a WiFi connection.
•    History of music, movies, shoe apps, tv, books purchased from Itunes store or ibook store or app store
•    Vidoes and photos, home screen , setting app data, SMS text, MMS messages and even ringtones.
To select the iPhone backup to iCloud, you have to go to the setting of your ios device in iTunes and select the iCloud backup option or choose directly from the IOS device itself. Backups can be performed automatically or manually, though anything purchased like music, books, or movies is not backed up. Still, they will be downloaded from the app, iBook, and iTunes store when you restore it from iCloud backup.
Though apple provides the user with 5GB of free cloud storage per apple id, one can quickly eat up the entire 5GB of storage if they are backing up the photos and videos, but you have the option to purchase extra iCloud storage with a fee. iCloud automatically syncs files. It has an automated sync, but it is not a proper backup because if you delete a photo from your iPhone, it cannot be recovered from the backup destination

Itunes backup

Most users are more familiar with Itunes because they use it to buy music, books, and apps from the apple store, for iPhone backup using iTunes, plug your iPhone into your Mac or Pc, open iTunes and sync your files using mac or pc. Itunes backups all your photos, images, files purchased, memo call logs, and calendar, application data, unlike iCloud, but you cannot copy files to the cloud by using Itunes.

It would help if you had an iPhone backup extractor because it can help you recover your file in a few clicks. It allows you to recover essential files without causing more data loss on the ones that exist. This feature of choosing only a few files to download from the backup without affecting the rest of the flies that are there is not in iTunes and iCloud backup.

How do you fix "iPhone backup failed"

Many people get the cryptic iPhone backup failed alert on their iPhones, but how can you fix this, and what does it mean? It means that the iPhone is not taking proper regular backup of your files to the iCloud

There are two simple ways to fix this problem-

Fixing iCloud backup

There are only a few reasons why iCloud backup would fail, and it generally happens when the Apple ID associated with your iPhone has run out of storage space, the solution would be buying more storage. Unfortunately, you will have to pay some monthly fees for this. Buying more space also has an additional benefit. For example, you can create a family sharing group from your apple device, and other family members can use your area without compromising data privacy. Another thing you can do if you do not want to buy additional storage is you can free up space in your cloud, either by removing data that is already taken up space or by backing up fewer data.

Enable iTunes backup

One thing you can do is that instead of backing up through iCloud backup, you can backup to your mac or pc. It will do it automatically if you have WiFi and your computer is on.
Disable iCloud backups and back up files manually
Though it is not recommended to disable automatic backup, you can still do this by going to settings and turning off iCloud backup. I recommend leaving this function to enable regular backup to a mac or pc with iTunes.
