Let’s make two important points.

  1.  You should backup your iPhone.
  2. The Senior Tech Club can help make it easy and automatic.

Why should I backup?

The National Cyber Security Alliance on the StaySafeOnline.org,  proposes that backup are a key element of your online safety.

These days, our digital devices contain vast amounts of data, from family photos and music collections to financial/health records and personal contacts. While convenient, storing all this information on a computer or mobile phone comes with the risk of being lost.

Data can be lost in several types of incidents, including computer malfunctions, theft, viruses, spyware, accidental deletion and natural disasters. So it makes sense to back up your files regularly.
