I am having problems performing an iCloud back up on my iPhone 6 plus. Every time a backup is performed the following message always appears “The latest back up could not be completed”. I have not previously had a problem with my iCloud backup on!
With a Wi-Fi network connection, you can make a backup of your device using iCloud. You don’t need to plug your device into a computer or even be at home to back up with iCloud. However, it seems that a number of users have had problems backing up to iCloud. It may takes you practically all day to get your iPhone/iPad successfully backed up and you have no idea if your good fortune will continue. Next, we are going to share you some tips on this issue.
How to back up your iOS devices to iCloud?
Back up automatically: Go to Settings > [your name] > iCloud > iCloud Backup (or Settings > iCloud > iCloud Backup), then turn on iCloud Backup.
Back up manually: Go to Settings > [your name] > iCloud > iCloud Backup (or Settings > iCloud > iCloud Backup), then tap Back Up Now.
What if iCloud backup couldn’t be completed?
If you are having this problem, here is how you can troubleshoot:
- Reset Network Settings by tapping Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings
- Delete older backups that you do not need. To do this, go to Settings > iCloud > Storage > Manage Storage
- If there is an iOS update, upgrade your device
- Reset your device by holding down the home button and the sleep/wake button together until the screen goes black and you see the Apple logo. (Before doing this, you may want to back up your device using iTunes). Go to Settings > iCloud > Storage > Manage Storage > Select your device that you are unable to backup. Then wait for a few seconds (Backup Options should be loaded completely before you proceed – no spinning wheel). Then Tap Delete Backup. After your backup is deleted, tap Settings > iCloud > Back up and turn iCloud Backup off then on again. Then tap Back Up Now.
Do I have any other ways to back up my data?
Definitely yes! Just open iTunes and connect your device to your computer. If a message asks for your device passcode or to Trust This Computer, follow the onscreen steps. Select your iPhone, iPad, or iPod when it appears in iTunes. Then just click Back Up Now. If you are not intend to back the entire device up, there’s a professional iOS backup tool called iFonebox can help you back specific data up.
