So I bought a new iPhone 5 64GB and I enabled iCloud backup. For a while now it has not been able to backup my iPhone, since the 5GB of iCloud storage quickly ran out. I didn't feel like upgrading my storage plan, since there's anyway no storage plan that is able to backup 64GB. So I decided to store the backups on my computer.
I connect my iPhone to my Mac and iTunes 11 opens up. Nothing is where it used to be and when I finally find my iPhone in the top right corner I'm presented with two options:
- Set up as new iPhone
- Restore from the backup of ...
(My itunes is in Swedish, so this is what I think it would say in English.)
So whatever I choose I lose all my data, which is really stupid, since the point of doing backups is to not lose data.
Is there any way to backup my iPhone without first deleting all data?
Note: This question seems similar, but it's for iTunes 10: How to set up new iPhone without deleting its data?
