70% of iPhone/iPad users are at risk of full data loss
If your iPhone or iPad dies you may lose all it’s data with no way of recovering it.
It appears that most iPhone/iPad users are given (at work or from a family friend) or purchase an iPhone/iPad on a plan from a Telco provider and have very little idea of its capabilities and its VULNERABILITIES.
It is also evident from our survey that most iPhone users have never been trained in how to use one, only use about 25% of its capabilities, use it ONLY as a phone and maybe a messaging devices and have NEVER been shown how to do basic maintenance such as backing up phone contacts, photos etc.
There are currently a number of very important iOS updates that need to be installed to keep your device operational and to secure it from viruses and hacking. And as you guessed it, 70% of iPhone users have no idea how to carry out such basic maintenance.
… are you prepared to lose your iPhone contacts, photos or music stored on your iPhone or iPad? This will be the case if the device dies, is destroyed, damaged or hacked and you don’t have a backup.
iPhones and iPads DO NOT back themselves up automatically, they are not that clever, and they need regular maintenance…. please upgrade them to at least iOS 9.0.2 (current as of October 2015)
There are two ways of backing up data on an iPhone or iPad (iCloud and iTunes)
If you have an iPhone, iPad or iMac, setting up iCloud is the easiest way to backup your device automatically over WiFi and every user gets a FREE 5GB of data storage with each account.
According to our research over 70% of iPhone/iPad users have NEVER or RARELY backup their data or even know how to do so.
- Backing up iPhone or iPad using iCloud
- Backing up iPhone or iPad using iTunes on a Mac or a PC
- Backing up a PC, iMac, Macbook, Macbook Air and Mac Mini using an external HDD
