There are multiple ways to backup your iPhone data. (Apple Support)

iPhones are some of the best and most premium smartphones that you can buy today. Equipped with flagship features, Apple's iPhone provides one of the best and most secure smartphone experiences that you can get. If you already own an iPhone, then you must've known that it is extremely important to keep your iPhone up to date with the latest software version. Apple periodically pushes out new updates for its devices to improve user experience with bug fixes, more refinement and new features.

However, the update process has one downside. Sometimes when you update, your iPhone gets interrupted in the process, causing you to lose all your data. This can be a disaster especially if you have precious photos or important work documents. Fortunately, Apple has provided a solution for this issue as it allows you to backup all your important data. If you replace your iPhone, you can use its backup to transfer your information to the new device.

To do this, Apple provides multiple ways. You can backup data via iCloud where you get 5GB of free space to store all your important documents and precious photos. If you run out of this storage space, you can upgrade to higher storage by paying a monthly subscription. You can backup via Mac or Windows PC too.
