iCloud and Google Drive aren’t enough

Major mobile devices come with the ability to store some data in the cloud so it can be accessed and shared. But cloud storage is incomplete as backup and native solutions have several limitations. Your multi-device family may have a mix of iPhones and Android devices, for example, but iCloud only works with iPhones and iPads. For a reliable, easy-to-use and secure way to back up your mobile device, nothing beats Acronis True Image.

Frequently asked questions
What is the best storage option for mobile backups?

The best storage is one that keeps your data safe and easily recoverable.


Backing up to your computer’s hard drive is okay if you’re only worried about accidentally deleting an original file, but that backup is lost when the hard drive fails. The better choice for quick recoveries is a local backup stored on an external hard drive, network share or NAS device. But if there’s a fire or flood, you’ll lose both the original and local backup.


The best is to also store an extra copy off-site, such as in the cloud, to ensure you have a version available no matter what happens. That means there’s no need to choose between the Acronis Cloud, your Google Drive/iCloud or external hard drive – the best option is to use cloud and local storage in combination.

How do you back up a tablet to a local computer?

If you want to know how to back up a tablet to a PC, Mac or NAS device, look no further than Acronis True Image. You can set it so any iOS or Android mobile device, whether a smartphone or tablet, automatically backs up when it connects to your Wi-Fi network. No cables, no hassles – just walk in the front door and as soon as your tablet connects, the backup process begins.


That means you can back up an iPad without iTunes or iCloud if you want. Keep a local backup for a fast recovery option, or pair that local backup with those cloud-based options for dual protection.
