When you finally decide to buy that sleek new iPad, one of the first tasks you are presented with is whether or not to turn on iCloud back-ups. Whether you decide to turn them on when you first purchase your iPad or later on is up to you. However, for demonstrative purposes, and because I bought and activated my iPad quite a while ago, I will quickly walk you through the set-up process from within the settings app. One thing to note with iCloud backups is that with iOS 8 Apple moved the backups to a different location within the settings app.
