Many users may have this type of problem. They do not know how to make an iPhone backup in an easy and fast way. Especially when a new version of iOS would be released, more and more users want to learn how to back up an iPhone in case of suffering from a large loss of important data. Here, I would like to tell you how to back up your data on the iPhone in the middle of 3 methods.
Method 1: Apowersoft Mobile Manager
If you are looking for an easy and quick way to back up your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus contacts, especially to pass contacts from iPhone to PC, external disk or other devices such as iPad, iPod, etc., the software free Apowersoft Mobile Manager is an ideal option. To know how to do it, follow the steps mentioned below:
- Download and install the Apowersoft Mobile Manager
- Start the program and connect the iPhone 6 to the PC. During the connection, a pop-up box will be displayed on the phone, press “Trust” to complete the connection.
- Click on “Contacts” in the main interface. You will see a complete list of your contacts.
- Click on the “Name” box and then you can make a backup copy of all contacts to the PC in XML file format using the “Export” button. Contacts in the form of XML gives the convenience of viewing on the computer. You can also pass the contacts to other devices by connecting the third device to the PC with the same manager and click “Import” to load the backup of the XML contacts.
Method 2: Backup iPhone 6 In iCloud
iCloud is another backup solution that allows users to have 5 GB of free space to store data. To pass contacts from iPhone 6 to iCloud, you need to go to “Settings” -> “iCloud” -> “Storage and Copy”, and then slide the button to activate the contacts. Finally, you can tap “Back up now” to start the backup process.
However, you should keep in mind that the capacity of iCloud is not enough for most users in terms of storing all the data. When making backup copies of iPhone contacts, it is necessary to make full use of 5 GB for the most important contact lists and information, so there is always not enough space left for large files such as photos, videos, music, etc. On the other hand, to guarantee the security of the data, the backup to the iCloud requires a WiFi network with excellent performance.
Method 3: Backup iPhone 6 With iTunes
Due to recent reports about iCloud vulnerabilities, iTunes should be a safer way to book iPhone 6 and 6 Plus contacts. But before using it, please make sure you are using the latest version of iTunes 11.4 so that it can be fully compatible with the new iPhone running on iOS 8. Now follow the steps to make the full backup:
Step 1: Open iTunes and connect your iPhone to the PC through the USB cable.
Step 2: Search and select your iPhone device in the top list.
Step 3: The information interface of your iPhone 6 will be displayed, select “This computer” and then “Encrypt local backup”.
Step 4: Click “Make copy now” to back up your contacts.
The backup of iTunes is much slower because you have to copy all the information from the iOS 8 device including music, videos, photos and other large data, you can not choose only the contact lists to make a backup. Sometimes, the process could be interrupted due to a lot of reasons.
