    Default Re: Do You Prefer An iTunes Backup Or An iCloud Backup?

    iCloud all the way. It's so much more convenient because I don't have to worry about it. If anything goes wrong I know I'll always have a recent backup ready.

    I honestly prefer iTunes but use iCloud out of convenience.

    iCloud is the way to go, unfortunately 5 GB (free) is useless today. Between my iphone and ipad it takes all. I hope apple can release more space and match box 50 GB.

    I rarely use iTunes and I really prefer the convenience of iCloud. I broke down and upgraded to more storage last year before iOS 7 was released.

    icloud back ups. They are automatic and don't require any effort as it happens when you charge your device. It's very convenient.

    iCloud is convenient so I use it but once in a while I'll drop a backup on iTunes but my most current is iCloud

    Used to only use iCloud, but as of late I've used both. Just piece of mind

    Itunes because iCloud costs money for storage use.

    thank you for the reminder, Ledsteplin
    50 GB in box, 55 GB at Mediafire and 5.88 GB dropbox.
    Since I bought my iPhone 4S second hand, no iCloud for me, yet. iTunes is answer of the aforementioned choices.

    iCloud is there but really everything I have is "cloud" based (email is IMAP, Evernote) plus I have almost everything (now 1 TB of space) on Dropbox.

    My 16 GB iPad is on T-Mobile, and there's thousands of Optimum hotspots around me so connectivity and space are never an issue.

    I totally agree... Once a month I use iTunes to back up, iPhoto to import my photos and videos.

    I use both. ICloud is set to backup automatically, so that means iTunes won't backup unless I force it. When I'm doing a restore though, I always go through iTunes backup. It's just a better and quicker experience for me.
