Do you still wonder how to backup MacBook Pro to iCloud? Read this tutorial with detailed steps to get this problem solved.
Backups are becoming more vital and necessary since everything we create and the store is finished on our computers. So we are always on the way to look for the best way to back up our data. For MacBook Pro users, obviously, a preferred way is to backup MacBook Pro to iCloud. However, for fresh MacBook Pro users, even those who have MacBook Pro for a long time, how to backup MacBook Pro is still troublesome. So in the following, we are going to share how to solve this problem step by step.
Step 1. Turn on iCloud. Your MacBook Pro must be running OS X v10.7.4 or later > Open System Preferences from the Apple menu in the upper left corner of your screen > Click on the iCloud icon > Enter your Apple ID and password to sign in > Check the box indicating that you wish to use iCloud to back up your information > Click the Next button.
Step 2. Choose which data you need to back up. Apple provides 5 GB of space for free when you sign up for iCloud. So, if you only wish to use this space, choose your most important documents and data to back up. And also you can upgrade your iCloud space for backing up more data.
All options are automatically checked by default, and you need to uncheck the boxes next to the information that you don’t want to be backed up.
Step 3. Enable Photo Stream. When you check the Photo Stream box, iCloud will save the last 1,000 photos for 30 days. If you have set up iCloud on your iPhone, this will automatically sync photos you have taken without having to connect your phone to your Mac.
Step 4. Close the System Preferences window. iCloud will now automatically sync the data you have chosen to backup MacBook Pro to iCloud.
