    Backing up to icloud

    I finally downloaded the 5.0 update and it gave me iCloud. I don't fully understand what that is. Is it better to back up all my things to iCloud or my computer? I'm scared if I back it up to iCloud if I lose my phone or iPad I'll loose everything.

    You can use both. By backing up your iPhone or iPad to iCloud, if you loose or damage it you can restore from the cloud. The back up takes place automatically once every 24 hrs, or by choose via the settings on the device.

    Hi,

    If you back up to your computer and iCloud, and your house gets broken into, and both your computer and iPad are stolen, at least you will have a backup stored FAR away with iCloud.

    Regards,
