iOS 10: Backup instructions and these devices get iOS 10




It is expected that evening at 19:00 overheat the Internet today. Apple will push the switch and the final version of iOS 10 publish. We tested some time, not only developers, but also in a public beta. These users have gotten recorded several days ago iOS 10.0.1 as Gold Master. Users of iPod touch, a iPads and iPhones can strike and so use the new features, which we have reported here in several contributions (and with release of iOS 10 we will also publish a small Roundup).

Because the devil is known to be a squirrel, you should definitely be a backup of your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad before upgrading to iOS make 10 – or if you new you iPhone 7 or iPhone buys 7 Plus. Apple offers to two backup versions, once the local and in the cloud.

I briefly describe both, but before I start, I write once, what systems iOS 10 is at all compatible. The graphical view: iOS 10 is compatible with all iPhones from the iPhone 5, also with all iPads from the fourth generation, all iPad minis version 2 and the iPod touch the sixth generation (not visible in the graphics).

Most Apple customers will therefore benefit from the new software. The performance on older devices has always been one of those things, maybe let her simply your comments here how it goes with you so, I would be interested.
Backup via iTunes

You lock your iPhone to the computer and start iTunes. In the upper left corner to your iPhone is (or just on the sidebar), which already automatically executes (Alternatively, you can see even the button “Back Up Now”) in the best case the backup. Here, however, are some things to consider. And likely you have a try first if you have little or no unused apps might not extinguished. Frühjahrsputz quasi. I use, for example, among others, Foursquare and Swarm no longer, in this episode flew those apps then stop directly down.


Purchases to iTunes transfer:

Thus in an emergency, the iPhone can be fully restored, the purchases were to be transferred. Here all installed apps are pushed into your iTunes Library – not the backup. This is done so that the backup is less than this, and the apps are kept in iTunes. Transfer Purchases For example, by the menu of iTunes. Storage> Transfer Devices> Purchases from iPhone. (Windows: File> Device)

In a replay of the backups so the apps from the library are brought once, the rest of the backup. About not Carry their purchases, so the backup is sometimes not completely – because then purchases must be loaded manually from the Apple Store again, with many apps can be slow. Normally iTunes should prompt for transmitting, if not, then consider it.

Who enabled the option to encrypt the backup also gets all passwords backed up, this would otherwise after a possible import again be entered – however, require some apps – such as from and to various Google apps – the re-authorization in a uploading to a new device.


The backup is not as large as the used space on the iPhone: the transferred purchases are stored separately in the iTunes Library, stay Photos and Videos transferred, held provided locally, normally in iTunes or the Photos app and be drawn from this database and replayed.

Want should you a furnished iPhone via backup on an iPad dub so be certain data is not transmitted: By the way, photos, messages and attachments in messages, voice messages and apps that are not compatible with the established device (For example, are apps that only are the iPad compatible, not transferred to the iPhone.)
Backup via iCloud

In an iCloud backup the important data in Apple’s cloud is stored. The path here is about the same, instead of the local backup you simply select here Apple’s iCloud from. The advantage are automatic backups, provided several conditions are met.


iCloud automatically creates backups of important data. After having the backup function on the iPhone “Settings”> “iCloud”> “Backup” activated, it will run every day as long as the following conditions are met:

The device is connected via WLAN to the Internet
The device is connected to the power supply
The screen is locked

You can also at any time perform backups manually, as long as the device via WLAN is connected to the Internet. You simply select “Back Up Now” under “Settings”> “iCloud”> “Backup”. What is this secure? Pictures and videos, device settings, app data, position of the folders and apps on the screen, SMS, iMessage and MMS, ringtones, Health data, the HomeKit configuration and visual voicemail.


The following are not backed up: music, movies and TV shows that were not purchased from the iTunes Store, podcasts and audiobooks and photos synced from your computer.

What backup you make is up to you. Who rarely joins his iPhone, maybe wants to restore quickly via WLAN, which is well served with the iCloud Backup. everything is just only a matter of memory size, with the free 5 GB one will probably not come.
Restoring a backup

Either you the device to iTunes connects and selects that you want to import a backup again, alternatively, you will be offered the opportunity for a new device, a backup from iCloud or from an existing backup will be recovered.

In this sense -fröhliches update if their not always up to a new iPhone 7 or 7 waits Plus, or once see if the mass reports problems to new iOS 10 users.
