A while ago, the only way to sync your iPad and iPhone was to use iTunes on your computer. But this process is now much more comfortable with the help of iCloud. iCloud which was introduced in 2011, it allows you to store data like documents, music, photos on Apple’s servers. You can also use and download the data available on the platform onto iOS, macOS and Windows devices.

The service also enables you to backup iOS devices directly if you so choose to use it for setup and restore purposes. Your data stays secure both when it’s in transit and storage. The specific tokens that are used for the authentication of data and the end-to-end encryption all contribute to protecting particular information.

The first thing to do before syncing is to check if you have enough iCloud space:

  1. Navigate to Settings on your iOS device and then tap on your name.
  2. Select iCloud >> Manage Store

Syncing all Data

To carry out synchronization of data across an iPad and an iPhone. You have to make sure that your devices are on the same Wi-Fi network. You will also need to make sure that the iCloud is up-to-date.

  2. Make sure that the iCloud Backup toggle is switched on and then click on the Back up Now button.
