  • iCloud encrypts your backups and iTunes encrypts too
  • itunes backup do not require internet where as iCloud backup is internet dependent

  3. In iOS 7 or earlier, tap Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup
  4. iCloud Backup should be turned on.
  5. Tap Back Up Now and wait till the backup completes
  6. Make sure the backup finished
  7. Goto  Settings > iCloud > Storage > Manage Storage, and then select your device.
