What is iTunes Backup?
Data stored on the iPhone can be backed up to a computer with iTunes or to a cloud based storage with iCloud. iTunes is used to backup the iPhone to a computer. When the iPhone is connected to a computer for the first time and synced with iTunes, iTunes automatically creates a folder with device UDID (Unique device ID – 40 hexadecimal characters long) as the name and copies the device contents to the newly created folder.
If the auto-sync option is turned off in iTunes, you have to manually initiate the backup process whenever the device is connected to the computer. Once the backup folder is created on the computer, then each time you sync your device with the iTunes, it will only update the files in the existing folder.
iTunes will initiate an automatic backup when your iPhone is updated or restored. iTunes backup location varies for different operating systems. Backup files created by iTunes are platform independent and can be moved from one operating system to other.
