If you want to save Health and Activity data from your device or Apple Watch, you need to encrypt your backup: Select the box called Encrypt [device] backup and create a memorable password. If you don’t need to save your Health and Activity data, you can make a backup that isn’t encrypted. Just click Back Up Now.Write down your password and store it somewhere safe, because there’s no way to recover your iTunes backups without this password.
When the process ends, you can see if the backup finished successfully.
Restore your device from an iCloud backup
Turn on your device. You should see a Hello screen. If you’ve already set up your device, you need to erase all of its content before you can use these steps to restore from your backup.
Follow the on-screen setup steps until you reach the Apps & Data screen, then tap Restore from iCloud Backup.
Sign in to iCloud with your Apple ID.
Choose a backup. Look at the date and size of each and pick the most relevant. After you choose, the transfer starts. If a message says that a newer version of software is required, follow the on-screen steps to update. (If you don’t see on-screen steps to help you update, learn what to do)
When asked, sign in with your Apple ID to restore your apps and purchases. (If you’ve purchased iTunes or App Store content using multiple Apple IDs, you’ll be asked to sign in to each) If you can’t remember your password, you can tap Skip this Step and sign in later. But you won’t be able to use the apps until you’ve signed in with your Apple ID.
Stay connected and wait for a progress bar to appear and complete. Depending on the size of the backup and the network speed, the progress bar might need a few minutes to an hour to complete. If you disconnect from Wi-Fi too soon, the progress will pause until you reconnect.
Now you can finish setup and enjoy your device. Content like your apps, photos, music and other information will continue to restore in the background for the next several hours or days, depending on the amount of information there is. Try to connect often to Wi-Fi and power to let the process complete.
