Part 1. Fix the iPhone Won't Backup to iCloud Issue


As an official backup offered by Apple, iCloud features on supporting iOS users to sync data via Wi-Fi or cellular data. It is an online drive for iPhone user to store iOS data. iOS users are required to have enough iCloud storage for backup. Why wont my iPhone backup to iCloud? When I first met this issue, I went to Settings > iCloud > Storage > Manage Storage to check whether my iCloud storage is sufficient or not. If the iCloud's space is enough, I will go further check as below.


1. Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset Network Settings to reset network settings. Connect to the Wi-Fi again to backup again. If that can't work, then I will connect to a different Wi-Fi network.


2. Go to Settings > iCloud > Tap on Sign Out at the bottom and log back in.


3. Go to Settings > iCloud > Storage > Manage Storage. Choose a backup, then tap on "Delete Backup" to remove the previous iCloud backups for your iPhone.


4. Restart your iPhone by holding down the home button and the sleep/wake button together until the screen goes black and you see the Apple logo.
