    Hi,

    I see where I have 30Gb of 50GB backed up on Icloud but I can't see where I can Back Up now as I have made some changes I want backed up.

    I have followed instructions I have seen on line but there is no option to BackUp.

    Thanks

    If you wish to backup to iCloud, open the Settings app, go to iCloud, scroll down to Backup, and on the next page you'll find "Back up now":

    Doh !! I didn't expect it to be in the list of apps, but did see it before but thought it was checked as to 'allow' a Backup, not a link to another area.

    Backing up now,.

    Many thanks
