Backup iPhone to Mac: By backing up your videos, images, and text messages, you can prevent data loss in the event that you misplace your phone or it gets damaged.

Backup iPhone to Mac

To protect your text messages, movies, and even images on your phone, you must back them up. Definitely, we carry our phones everywhere we go, but they can disappear just like our keys.

Fortunately, losing both your phone and your data is preventable. Cloud services like iCloud or OneDrive or your computer are the two simple options for backing up your iPhone.

Each approach has advantages and disadvantages. Backing up to a cloud service might be simpler because it just needs one device; your phone. Backing up to the cloud, unfortunately, limits you to how much data you can store with that cloud.

1. Connect your iPhone and your computer with a cable.

2. In the Finder sidebar on your Mac, select your iPhone.
