Backup your mobile phone data in a few easy steps

Losing data happens to everyone. You maybe organizing your files, traveling outdoors, or just multitasking. By some weird improbable accident, you delete them all or lose the data – even important files from work or your vacation pictures. You lost them and you have no way of retrieving them. This would not have been a problem if you have backup data. So how do you prepare a backup?

Clients are constantly worried of losing the entire contents of their mobile phone. Naturally, the most common problem that consumers face whenever they have their mobile phones repaired is the lack of backup data, according to Mobilecare, one of the leading mobile repair companies offering on-site repair in Dubai and Sharjah.

With problems such as broken LCDs, software issues, and ever-growing security threats, you can never be too cautious when it comes to your mobile phone’s data. Here are a few ways to keep your phone data safe:

FOR APPLE PRODUCTS

1. Backup your data on iCloud and iTunes. Apple’s very own cloud storage, the iCloud, provides you with 2TB of storage space and encrypts your backup data. On the other hand, iTunes allows you to transfer data such as MP3s, videos, photos, and PDFs from your iPhone to your Mac or PC. The storage space depends on the available space on your desktop.

2. To backup data on iCloud, connect to a Wi-Fi network. Follow this route: Settings>iCloud>Backup. Tap Backup Now and make sure your Wi-Fi connection is stable to start the backup process. Once done, go to Manage Storage in iCloud. This will show your backup data. What’s great about this is you can automatically backup data as long as you have enough storage on iCloud.

3. To backup data on iTunes, connect your Apple device to your computer. Once your device is connected to your computer, the device’s name will show up on iTunes. Click Backup Now to start the process. Once it’s done, go to iTunes Preferences>Devices. From here, you will see the name of your device and the created backup data.

These days, losing all the important data from your smartphone is just as bad as losing the device itself. It’s a frustrating experience so you have to be well-prepared for that possibility. Taking the initiative to back up your data will save you a lot of trouble later on.
