Backup iPad to iCloud

Making an iPad backup to iCloud is a good idea, if you want to always have access to your backups and not only from your PC. Surely, iCloud has its advantages: it makes copies automatically, you will have all your devices synchronized, you need only WiFi, and you don’t depend on PC.

But there are also some disadvantages:

❌ There is not much free space in iCloud, only 5 Gb free. You have to pay, if you want more
❌ It doesn’t keep copies more than 180 days
❌ Your data will be stored on Apple’s servers
❌ Restore from iCloud overwrites all iPhone data

But anyway, how do I backup my iPad to the cloud?

Open: Settings > Username > iCloud > iCloud Backup > Back up now
