Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

             Upon a recent visit to our local AT&T store which issued an iPhone 5S to us a while back, we did learn that the iPhone automatically backs up data every 2 hours to an iCloud which brings me to the point of this upcoming question.  How can we confirm the data backup on iCloud?   Any submitted online link or links which illustrate easy to follow step by step procedures for accomplishing this goal will be greatly appreciated.

              Thank you

              George

Just login to www.icloud.com using your Apple ID and password and you should see what data you've on backup

Hello and Good Afternoon Tom,

             Thank you so much for your helpful followup.  I would like to take a moment and ask two important, but, related followup questions.  Hypothetically speaking, if a personal has lost or forgotten these login credentials for icloud.com. how may they be obtained?  Once logged in, is it possible to back up the stored data on iCloud to an external USB flash drive?

Hello and Good Morning Tom,

            Thank you very much for your suggestion.  This was much easier and straightforward as originally thought.  We will certainly keep this link for future reference.

             Thanks again.
