    Hello aatli_us


    As it turns out, iCloud does backups will backup you SMS messages. Take a look at the article "iCloud: Backup and restore overview" for more information about what that process look like.


    You get 5 GB of free iCloud storage for:

    • Photos and videos in the Camera Roll
    • Device settings (for example: Phone Favorites, Wallpaper, and Mail, Contacts, Calendar accounts)
    • App data
    • Home screen and app organization
    • Messages (iMessage, SMS, and MMS)
    • Ringtones
    • Visual Voicemails


    Hope that helps,
