Having successfully backed up my iPhone  and iPad to iCloud, my question is , when do the back ups happen ? do you manually go to the settings and initiate them or they just happen every time  your device is plugged and locked? I have left my phone to charge over night and checked and see if  it indeed had backed up , but it showed the original back up done a day ago. Is there a setting that can trigger them ? Thanks .

    I have the same problem. I have to sync manually, otherwise nothing happens...

    Same problem.  It's supposed to do backup when plugged in, connected to wifi, and locked. 


    Auto Syncing with iTunes using WIFI does work and I think it has the same requirements as auto iCloud backup.  It even wakes up the mac to do the sync (WakeOnDemand using a TimeCapsule is awesome).

    All is working, now, I just came back from swimming and plugged my Ipad since I was reading a lot and doing other stuff , and it backed up automatically . So I guess this was something that might have been related to the servers? , who knows, but it was fast and quick . Nice. Hope all of you have the same experience. These communities are so helpful . Thanks.
