I am changing jobs. My current phone is supplied my bu current employer as is my laptop - I do not have a home computer or a "personal" phone. My question is how does one back up my iPhone (this will then be handed back to my current employer along with my laptop) and then reinstall all my apps etc with my new employer on the iPhone they are getting me. I have about 60-something Gig on the phone (mainly photos, music etc) and would prefer not to use iCloud due to my perceived security of iCloud - rightly or wrongly - if the consensus is that it is good these days then that is worth considering (does it have a minimum term of signing up as I would probably on use it for this transfer), alternatively I have a bout a million external HDD's.

 

 

 

All advice or links to useful tutorials welcomed, seems when you google it the search is so broad I'll have left my job before I find the answer...cheers

iCloud make sure you log out of iCloud before passing phone back to the employer you are leaving, Then log into iCloud on the new iPhone and sync everything across

Just make sure the icloud is on your own personal email and not tied to a company one at all.  Had a mate that had his icloud as his work email address and now can no longer buy apps etc (forgot password can't get a password reset email now etc).

Thanks Mate, I am presently trawling the apple website trying to find out if I have to sell my soul to Apple for a year or if there is a one month only option. It's like trying to find your way out of a casino in Vegas finding an answer on there...

Sounds like you need to visit a friends place and backup the handset to iTunes on a PC / MAC

Cool, do you know if that can be a one-off or if you have to sign up for a minimum term? That's the bit I cant find on the apple website, cheers
