My music on iTunes keeps getting deleted on my computer. If I turn on iCloud will it back up my music on my phone and keep it on my computer? Or does iCloud not back up music? It says it backs up photos, but I just want my  music backed up.

    iCloud does only backup your iTunes music purchases.


    "What is backed up


    You get unlimited free storage for:


    Purchased music, movies, TV shows, apps, and books


    Notes: Backup of purchased music is not available in all countries. Backups of purchased movies and TV shows are U.S. only. Previous purchases may not be restored if they are no longer in the iTunes Store, App Store, or iBookstore.
