iOS 13 introduces a dramatic new look for iPhone with Dark Mode, new ways to browse and edit photos, and a private way to sign in to apps and websites with just a tap. It is faster and more responsive with optimizations across the system that improve app launch, reduce app download sizes and make Face ID even faster.
You may have been hearing these a lot about upgrading your iPhone to iOS 13 but end up doing nothing for fear of data loss. It is common to have this concern that updating to the latest version sounds great but what if I lose my significant data during the process? No worries. This article is going to give you 5 ways to backup your iPhone before you are planning to upgrade to iOS 13.

\"\"Part 1: Backup iPhone with iCloud
iCloud is an included feature on every iPhone with at least iOS 5, which can back up your iPhone data automatically once you turn it on. Simply follow the steps below to turn on the iCloud Backup.
Step 1: Connect your device to a Wi-Fi network.
Step 2: Tap Settings > iCloud > Backup.
Step 3: Turn on iCloud Backup if it isn\’t already turned on.
Step 4: Make sure you are on a WiFi connection and tap Back Up Now.
Step 5: Check your backup by tapping Settings > iCloud > Storage > Manage Storage, and then select your device. You should see your latest backup listed.
iCloud Backup charges nothing for the first 5GB of files. Otherwise, you’ll have to pay a monthly fee. For 50GB, you\’ll pay $0.99 per month. For 200GB, the cost is $2.99 per month. And for 1TB, Apple charges $9.99 per month. These prices might not seem steep, but they\’re still significantly higher than the prices of most online data storage services.
Photos and videos can fill up your free 5GB fast. If you take a lot of pictures and still opt for iCloud Backup, you can choose to back up your most recent 1,000 photos in My Photo Stream, and they won\’t count against your storage limit. Today\’s iPhones store up to 128GB of data so even with a 1,000 photos in My Photo Stream and 5GB of free iCloud storage you can easily run out of free storage.

\"\"Part 2: Backup iPhone with iTunes
To backup using iTunes, a computer running iTunes is needed. Then you need to allow your phone to communicate with your computer—either through Wi-Fi or by connecting the devices with a USB cord. Backing up via iTunes to your computer is pretty straight forward. Just follow these steps:
Step 1: Open iTunes.
Step 2: Connect your iPhone to your computer.
Step 3: Click File > Devices > Backup or click Backup Up Now from Summary page.
Using this method you can backup everything from your iPhone – photosvideostext messagesapplication data, etc., from your iPhone to your computer as often as you wish. Since iTunes is free your backup is free. Still there are a couple of things to remember when using this method.
You have to remember to do the backup. It is a manual operation, not automatic. It only takes a few minutes, but your initiative is required. You can make this automatic, but most people find that this uses a lot of network bandwidth (think LTE, 3G and 4G) at the wrong times and end up turning it off.
You need to have enough free space on your computer\’s hard drive to store the iPhone backup. Again with up to 128GB of storage on your iPhone, that could be an issue.

\"\"Part 3: Backup iPhone with Google Drive
There is a permission for iOS user to install Google Drive on their iPhone or iPad. You can backup photos on Google Photos, and contacts to Google Contacts. Moreover, your files could be backed up on Google Drive.

Step 1: Firstly install Google Drive on your iOS phone and open it.
Step 2: In the top left, tap on Menu bar.
Step 3: At the top of Menu, tap Settings > Backup.
Step 4: And than tap to Start Backup.


You can see all your files across all devices after your backup . Photos will be backed up with the original quality, after that you can see and edit the photos with the Google Photos.
To restore your contacts backup on your iPhone, move to your iPhone settings > Accounts & Passwords > Add Account > Google. Sign-in to your Google account together with your login credentials. Tap Next. currently switch Contacts possibility on. As for calendar events, merely install your Google Calendar app for your new device.
