Although syncing your iPhone with your computer is a bit of a bugbear for some, it's certainly a good idea to do it every so often. It can often take a long time to complete, and if you don't do it that often then it takes even longer. If you think about how much and what type of information you have on there, then it certainly doesn't hurt to have a backup, and regular syncing sees to that for the most part.
Of course there are apps that can do it for you too and we take a look at some of the best ones in this syncing and backup guide. And of course there are those frantically annoying times when things just won't work the way you want them to, so we've thrown in some troubleshooting guides on syncing and backups too.
There are also sections that address specific syncing needs such as music, or contacts -- just think how lost you'd be without either of those.
Even if you don't want to sync your phone to your PC or Mac frequently, you'll definitely want to make sure some of your more valuable data is backed up, and everything you could possibly need to know is in our Let's Backup section.
