For an iPhone user, it’s necessary to back up your device on regular basis in case of data losses.

You may think of iTunes when talking about backup issues. Out of question, iTunes is professional in this field. However, it’s impossible to carry a USB cable everywhere you go and also, for those iPhone owners whose USB port is damaged, iTunes doesn’t seem to be a good choice either. 

So, how to transfer iPhone data to PC over WiFi? This is exactly what we’re going to talk about in the following contents.

Method 2 Back up iPhone Data without USB Cable via iCloud

If you don’t have a USB cable or the port on your iPhone is damaged, iCloud also seems to be a good alternative to iTunes. With a 5-GB-free storage plan, iCloud is loved by millions of iOS users in need of iPhone backup. But do make sure you already have a valid iCloud account regisgtered.

In spite of some shortcomings of iCloud, let’s still have a look at how to use this practical service anyway.
