11 Back Up Your Data
You may not be able to prevent your iPhone from getting lost or stolen, but you can prevent losing all of your precious photos, texts, and data. This is a pretty basic tip, but it’s one that can turn out to be crucially important. And it’s something that all savvy iPhone owners do on the regular (or, at least, we hope).
It doesn’t matter whether you use iCloud Backup, or you manually copy your data by connecting your iPhone to a computer via iTunes. The important thing is that you make regular backups. In fact, it’s probably smart to back up your data to multiple locations in case of severe tragedies — like losing both your laptop and your iPhone.
