    If I backup my phone via iTunes on my computer, will it backup all settings? For example:

    apps a, b and c set to only show banner locations (via the phone's Settings app)

    apps d, e and f set to never allow location (via the phone'e Settings app)

    within WeatherBug, specific locations set and all the various settings within the WeatherBug app

    Would all the above be restored if I wiped my phone and restored it from the iTunes backup? Basically, is an iTunes backup like a Norton Ghost backup of my computer's hard drive?

    Be sure to do an ENCRYPTED back up in iTunes. Apple will not back up sensitive date (including Health Data) unless the backup is encrypted.

    Thanks for the tip, but will everything be backed up?
