Learn how to backup and restore your device using iCloud.

  1. Before you can use iCloud on each of your devices, you need to sign in to iCloud using your existing Apple ID or a new one, then turn on the iCloud features you want to use.

To make sure it's set up correctly, or to set up your iCloud account on another iOS device, computer, or Apple TV, go to the set up iCloud website listed below. Important: Be sure to use the same Apple ID when you set up iCloud on each device.
