    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.

    I use Box for some things. I have 50 gb of storage there. I even have my contacts in a CSV file on an email account.

    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.

    Honestly I only use iCloud because of Find my iPhone and it's strictly just for find my iPhone besides that everything gets backed up to iTunes

    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.

    I will never back anything up to the cloud. I'm totally against it. Yes it's easy access for you from anywhere but it also is for anyone else.

    iCloud done automatically and iTunes done whenever I remember to. Prefer iTunes though, but I don't have the time to be honest, so iCloud is good enough.

    For these reasons, soooooo many people don't use iTunes or iCloud backups, because they are nearly useless. Most folks use 3rd party software to backup the Apple devices
    Judging by the amount of responses here already I would disagree with you. Seems like the majority here use iCloud

    I honestly never restore from a backup though my backup of choice is iCloud! I just make sure to keep my apps in iTunes to easily drag and drop them when setting up as a new device!

    iCloud easy automatic‼️ but sometimes if I need to have phone looked at for an issue (1 time) or with new phone I tend to use iTunes.

    Do use back up if cleaning up and deleting music😜👍
