When it comes to desktops or laptops, one of the most important tasks for the user is to back up the system. Backing up frequently allows you to retain the data you have been working on for days or months, and in case of a system glitch or problem, having a recent backup helps you pick up right where you left off. The best way to create a backup of your iPhone is using the cloud storage feature of Apple – iCloud.
By default, your iOS 14 devices (iPhone or iPad) will start creating a backup on iCloud, the moment you boot them up and start using the devices, and while all of your content is selected for backing up by default, we feel that you should select just a few of the options, and probably the most important one are your contacts.
Backing up your contacts ensures that even if you reset the device at a later date, your contacts can simply be restored from the cloud. The procedure is simple and in this tutorial, we will show you exactly how you can set your contacts for backup on the Cloud.

Step 1. Open the ‘Settings‘ app on the iPhone.
Step 2. Tap on the ‘User Name‘ button at the top of the settings menu.
Step 3. In the user settings menu, tap on the ‘iCloud‘ option.
Step 4. Scroll through the list and toggle ON the ‘Contacts‘ option.
Once you turn on the backup for contacts, you will see that all your contacts will now be saved on the iCloud and you can quickly access them through the iCloud website for PC. Now, if your iPhone needs to be factory reset due to some problem, or it has been wiped during a servicing run, you can then restore your iCloud backup and your contacts will be restored as they were before the reset was performed.
