Take iOS device for example, iCloud is the official cloud service for its users. But most of them may wonder what data iCloud will back up? Does iCloud backup call history? Does iCloud backup messages?

Let me get it clear what on earth iCloud would back up:

  1. App data
  2. Apple Watch backups
  3. Call history
  4. Device settings
  5. HomeKit configuration
  6. Home screen and app organization
  7. iMessage, text (SMS), and MMS messages
  8. Photos and videos on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
  9. Purchase history from Apple services, like your music, movies, TV shows, apps, and books
  10. Ringtones
  11. Visual Voicemail password (requires the SIM card that was in use during backup)

Some people are fond of using iTunes to create iOS backups on PC/Mac. But do you know neither iTunes nor iCloud allows you to access the important data unless you restore the backup to your device? And you can't backup data selectively.

What's more, do you know what consequence will happen if you restore an iCloud backup or iTunes backup to get back your call history? All your current data will be replaced by the data from the backup!
