    A backup is a file that stores info on your iPhone on your computer so if something ever happened to your iPhone or you need to do a restore you can put everything back on to your iPhone.

    To do a backup the plug your iPhone up to iTunes and sync. And it will backup your iPhone.

    I would recommend to do a backup and the more often you do a backup the less time it will take. I backup everyday and it takes to seconds to backup my iPhone.

    Whenever you sync your iPhone on iTunes it automatically backs it up. No need for you to do more than just plug it in and sync.
