iOS 15 includes several new features for FaceTime, Wallet, Photos, Weather, and Apple Maps including new animations, graphics, and more. Another new feature included in iOS 15 is the ability to enable iCloud backup over mobile data on iPhone. iCloud is a helpful tool you can use to upload full device backups, backup files, documents, photos, or other data onto the cloud.
Prior to the release of iOS 15, iCloud backups could only be done over a Wi-Fi network. In addition to having your iPhone updated to the latest software, it needs to be 5G enabled. That means that you need to own a device from the iPhone 12 or iPhone 13 lineup. Here’s how to enable iCloud backup over mobile data on iPhone in a few simple steps.
