How would you feel if one day you wake up in the morning and see blank screen on your iPhone with zero data in it? All of your pictures, videos and documents that you collected in past years vanish away. It is difficult to recover these data files without the help of any good data recovery software for iOS. Same thing would happen if a phone snatcher snatches your iDevice and takes it away far from you. For many people, data is more important than their iDevices, because their iDevices may contain private media files and confidential documents.
The ancient way to keep your data safe was, copying all of your data by transferring it to your PC. But we are next generation people and can’t waste our time in migrating data from iOS device to PC. The faster and easier way to keep data safe is preservation of data at online resources. To store data online, cloud storage is the ever best option, because in case of data loss from your device, the data keep exists in the cloud storage; you can restore your data to iDevice in just few minutes. Below are some cloud storage apps for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch offering free storage space more than 10GB and upto 50GB.
