On your iOS 8 device: Go to Settings > iCloud > Backup, then turn on iCloud Backup.

On your iOS 7 device: Go to Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup, then turn on iCloud Backup.

Back up manually

On your iOS 8 device: Go to Settings > iCloud > Backup, then tap Back Up Now.

For information about messages that may appear while backing up, see the Apple Support article Troubleshooting creating an iCloud backup.

Important:   If you don’t back up your iOS device to iCloud for 180 days or more, Apple reserves the right to delete your device’s iCloud backups. For information, see iCloud Terms and Conditions.
