This video tutorial shows you how to create a backup image of your Apple iPhone, iPad, iPad 2 and iPod Touch. By creating a backup of your iOS device, you can simply plug-in your phone and restore it – along with your contacts, apps, music, movies and more. If you have recently upgraded from an Apple iPad 1 to an Apple iPad 2, you can also move your information quickly and easily to a new device. If you have additional questions, please feel free to connect with me on Facebook.

Well, did the backup. Buuuuut… all app data is gone. No getting it back, cuz I traded in my old phone to get the new one. I still have the backup saved on my computer. Any help?

McDonald's Man says:

My iPod Touch, with the latest iOS, is saying that it can't be backed up because there isn't enough iCloud storage available. However, I just did a backup through the PC application, and it seemed to work fine. Any ideas?

Zaina Arekat says:

I have a question, or a couple of questions maybe…
I'm running my iTouch on iOS7, and I need to restore my device for some other reason. So if I backup my device, restore it, and use the backup, will i still have iOS7 or will iOS8 come in its place?
Does backup include apps and app versions? Lets say I am happy with the older twitter app version and I don't want to lose it for accessibility related issues. I am a blind iOS user, so those little details really mean a lot and makes a difference on how I interact with certain apps.
Thank you so much! A response from you is really appreciated!!

Taylor Chouinard says:

Rebecca Hall says:

HELLO Can you advise how you can view the contents of the backed up IPAD material on the computer.  The reason for backing up the content was to ensure that if the IPAD was lost, the information etc. was on the computer. Thanks M

FahdTF says:

sooo when you backup its likesaving your data on computer, then for instance your phone has lost data we can restore it, right??

Elipsis150 says:

I plugged in my iPod Touch and tried this process and it didn't work. It gave me the option to transfer over my apps (which I opted not to do since I don't want them on my iPhone) and then it gave me the option to back up purchased content from the iTunes Store which I did… But that's ALL that it backed up… The rest of my library was not touched. How do I get it to back up all of my songs and not only the ones purchased from the iTunes store?

santabanta333 says:
