Step 4: Choose iCloud Backup.

Now that you know how to back up iPhone 14 to iCloud, you can do it whenever you want to make a backup of your iPhone.
You may also enable the Back Up This iPhone switch at the top of this menu if you want your iPhone to back itself up automatically.
This usually happens at night or when you don’t normally use the phone.
If you don’t want your iPhone to use cellular data for creating backups, turn off the Back Up Over Cellular option. Depending on what you’re backing up, they can be several GB in size, which can take a lot of cellular data.
Furthermore, you only receive 5 GB of complimentary iCloud storage. This may seem like plenty space at first, but in a few months, you’ll simply outgrow it. If you require more storage capacity, you can purchase one of the iCloud upgrades from the choices on the iCloud Backup screen.
