iPhone 6 / itune

When I had iPhone 3, as soon as I connected it to my laptop, it started with backing up my data etc. (I guess it installed itune automatically).

Now, I have iPhone 6 and when connected to my new laptop, iTune is not getting started (or getting installed). I got an interface recognizing my new device (iPhone 6). I chose backup images and videos (because there were not other good options). The following image is what I am getting. And upon click on okay it disappears and nothinfg is happening.

Question: Does iPhone 6 backup similar to iPhone 6 via itune?

If so, how can I get iTune installed on my computer from a safe source?

That's windows doing a backup of your SSD in the phone and treating it like a storage device.  You can download and install ITunes from the Apple site.

Its apples site, just click the download now button and it will download and install the latest version of ITunes

Also on a side note if you setup your apple account on the phone and enabled the icloud services.  When you connect your phone to power at night the phone will be automatically backed up to the cloud (if you have it setup).

Install iTunes V12  separately. Go to www.apple.com and look for iTunes. It will select your bit strength and OS and offer you a version that works. That is how I do it.  Get it running and attach your iPhone by USB cable to get started and it should recognize the phone and start backing it up. That works for me on my iPhone 4S (a couple of them).

I recommend backing up your iPhone to iCloud. It's more automatic and reliable than one done to your computer via iTunes and the restores tend to work better when that time comes.

I have replaced my iPhone (breakage) and restore from my Computer was perfect. I am not saying that iCloud doesn't work, merely that the local Computer is equally good in terms of backup.
