Apple users can get a lot of convenience from iCloud. For example, they can create backup files directly by iCloud, which is quick and safe. What they need to do is to connect their Apple devices to WIFI, so that they can back up almost everything they want. All the data that can be backed up are listed below for your perusal.
- 1. iMessage, SMS messages and MMS messages
- 2. Photos and videos stored on the Camera Roll
- 3. Purchased media files like audios, videos, books, etc
- 4. Ringtones & voice messages
- 5. Apps and settings
- 6. Other data
But the question comes that what should we do if we want to view the iCloud backup files and download iCloud backup content. Don't worry! Here you will see a simple solution to this question.
The backup files that stored are safe than you can imagine. And you are allowed to get access to them by signing into your iCloud account on the official site. However, you can only view a part of the backup files instead of all of them. You can view the calendar, contacts, reminders, notes, and Numbers and Keynote documents. But you are not able to have access to the photos, audios, videos, ringtones, visual voice messages, text messages, iMessage, MMS messages, and apps, etc. In order to view this kind of data, you may need a third party software.
If you have deleted some important data files on your Apple device by mistake, and you happen to have an ideal backup file on the iCloud.
