Apple iPad Air 2 support.

Backing up with iCloud.

The steps below are based on using the latest software. If the screenshots or steps look different to you, you should update your software, to keep your iPad working smoothly and securely.

It's a good idea to regularly back up your iPad in case it gets lost, stolen or damaged. With iCloud, you can back up your contacts, calendar, pictures, apps and settings. When you sign up for iCloud, you automatically get 5GB of free storage. Once you've set iCloud up, it'll automatically save your content when you connect to Wi-Fi.

If you've got more than 5GB of data stored on your iPad, you should back it up using iTunes.

To back up your iPad using iCloud:

  1. On the homescreen, tap Settings

  2. Tap iCloud

  3. Enter your Apple ID and password, then tap Sign In. If you don't have one, tap Get a free Apple ID

  4. Once you've read the Terms of Service, tap Agree

  5. Choose what you want to back up

  6. Tap Storage & Backup

  7. Make sure that iCloud Backup is switched

  8. Tap Back Up Now

    Note: You need to be connected to Wi-Fi to use iCloud Backup.
