What’s happening now?

Every night, your iPhone backups its data to iCloud. This backup includes now all KeepLink data. Obviously, your iPhone needs to be connected to Internet to do so.

You can redo all the steps above to check the date and time of your last backup as well as its size. You’ll find these on top of the applications list.

How to recover my data?

When you setup a new iPhone, you’re asked to register with your Apple ID. When done, your iPhone will start downloading all your data from iCloud. This includes all KeepLink data: items, pictures, videos, documents, websites, contacts, etc. Just reinstall KeepLink from the App Store and you will retrieve all what makes your Digital Brain so useful!
