Throughout the day, you often turn to iPhone 5: use reminders on the calendar, take important notes, make calls, add contacts, scroll through the Internet or just play. And this is not a complete list of what your iPhone 5 is capable of.
And over time, iPhone 5 turns into a repository of important information that you have collected over the long months or even years. Useful contacts, saved bookmarks, save games, important notes. After all, this info is dear to you, is not it? And in order not to lose it, the device must be synchronized with iTunes, and then iCloud must be backed up. Unfortunately, many troubles can happen in our life, because of which we can lose our devices. Perhaps after a successful birthday you lose your fifth iPhone, and a long search will not yield any results.
It’s worth saying right away that when an iPhone is backed up on a computer, the content is transferred from the iOS device to the computer, and vice versa, to delete or modify the content. Please note that if you deleted information from iTunes items, then when synchronizing contacts and other data, you will only receive the information that you entered into synchronization. Accordingly, only it will be transferred from iTunes to iPhone 5, and all other files stored in your gadget will be deleted.
Before the synchronization of contacts and other data is started, you need to download and install the latest version of iTunes on your computer. If you don’t have it initially, you can always download it from the official Apple website.
So, if you were able to download iTunes, then half the battle is ready. Connect the device to a personal computer using the USB cable that is included in the kit, and then select iPhone 5 in the iTunes program. After that, a list of data that can be synchronized and backed up appears:

We select the data we need (there is a window that selects all the information that is on the gadget) and then click “synchronize”. Probably the most important here is the synchronization of contacts, so start with it. Information is not synchronized for very long, so you do not have to wait long. If some part of the data is synchronized for too long, then there are some problems with iTunes.
If the backup is not created and the information is not synchronized, then this problem can have different reasons. If the computer does not see the iphone, then most likely the error is related to outdated or crashed USB drivers. To fix this problem, simply download the latest USB drivers from the official Apple website. If some buttons are not active in the iTunes program, then the program may be outdated, and again you need to download the latest version.
