Restore from Backup on iPhoneSource: iMore

Thankfully, Apple makes backing our things up super easy. Whether it's iPhones and iPads backing up to iCloud or the ease of moving to a new Apple Watch when the new hotness lands on your doorstep, there's a tool ready and waiting. Time Machine and iCloud immediately spring to mind, but there are tons of third-party backup solutions that we love, too.

So today's for everyone who backs up and everyone who wants to back up better! May your data be safe and your restorations speedy. And if you aren't backing up yet, go and do it now!
