One backup is never enough. An automatic service like iCloud is great—if your phone ends up in a ditch somewhere, you won’t lose all the photos of your family. But an iCloud backup doesn’t cover everything on your device. That’s why you should also do it the old school way, and make a local backup to your Mac or PC.
