How to View iCloud Backup
I recently got an iCloud account and backed up my iPhone to it. But I am wondering how to access iCloud? I want to view what does iCloud back up, especially photos, does iCloud back up all my photos? Is there anyone who knows how to check iCloud backup? Thank you!
As far as I know, Apple iCloud offers great features to users. It can automatically back up almost all data stored on your iOS device once a day when the device meets the three conditions of plugging in to a power source, screen locked, and connected with a Wi-Fi network. However, iCloud has its limit because Apple only provides users one way to access iCloud by logging to iCloud official site and you can only view part of data not complete data. You will find that those data you can reach on iCloud website site includes photos, contacts, calendar, notes, mail, etc. If you only need to access these data, it’s totally fine to log in and use your iCloud account.
