Why We Need a Backup?

The purpose of creating a backup of your iOS device is so that you have a copy of all your content and personalized settings stored. If something goes wrong with your device or your device gets lost or stolen, you can restore the content from your old device to the new one.

One additional and useful feature of iOS 7 is the ability to back up your iOS device wirelessly, and have the related backup files stored online ("in the cloud"). With this feature, your iOS device can be connected to any Wi-Fi Internet connection, and your primary computer is not needed. Thus, the backup can be done anywhere you want, and you can restore your device from anywhere via Wi-Fi Internet connection.
