Removing unused apps will trim down the amount of storage you’re using, and also speed up the backup process since there’s less for iTunes or iCloud to backup.
Next, back up your iPhone or iPad
You can backup your iPhone/iPad in a couple ways. The first is by using the iCloud service or by using the iTunes right on the Mac or on your Windows PC meanwhile using the iCloud service for backup is much more easier but do note that backing up is quite obligatory so that in case things goes south, you can easily retreat back to the way things were formerly.
Backing up through iCloud
Using the iCloud service to back up your iPhone.iPad before updating to the new iOS 13 is safer and easier than using iTunes meanwhile, you might prefer the other way if you have issues uploading files to the cloud as this would require lots of data/active connection. as well as power. It would be great if you get the device plugged to power.
But to do that, what you do is to go to Settings > tap on your name > iCloud > iCloud Backup > Back up now.
Backing up through iTunes
Using the iTunes can also be used back up your iPhone data. This is another way to backup your data and prepare it for iOS 13 upgrade but you will need a computer with the latest iTunes installed and an Apple Lightning cable.
To do this, you need to connect your iOS device to the computer and unlock it. Enter your PIN code if prompted to approve a connection between the computer and device.
In iTunes, click on the small thumbnail of your device next to the Music/Movies drop-down menu.
With the Summary option selected on the left, you should see a screen full of details about your device. On that screen is also a Backups section. Leave iCloud selected, but check the Encrypt iPhone backup box.
You’ll be asked for a password that will be used to encrypt the backup. Whatever you do, do not lose or forget the password you enter — without it, you can’t restore your iOS device’s backup should you need to.
With a password entered, click Back Up Now and let iTunes work. A few minutes later, you’ll have an encrypted backup stored on your computer. An encrypted backup will prevent you from having to enter account passwords for apps like email or Facebook when restoring a device, as opposed to iCloud backups that can be hit or miss.
After the back up is done, the next thing is obviously installing the iOS 13 and when that is done, you can head through to restore your files and data back on the device. The fact that you can install this OS on nearly many older iPhones means you might still steer clear of the new iPhone 11.
