I'm not sure what that means as I've never encountered that message before. You could do the following though -- Sync your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iTunes on your computer using USB - Apple Support. Or perhaps -- If your iTunes backup couldn't be completed or you can't restore from a backup - Apple Support.

If you attach the phone to a computer and access it using iTunes, you should notice a choice to backup to iCloud or iTunes. If iCloud is selected, you can't backup to iTunes.

Is this something new with iOS 11 or iTunes 12.7? Or am I reading this out of context? I have been backing up to both for years.
