Yes, you'd better backup iPhone before repairing to prevent the data missing issue. Indeed, iCloud provides easy way to backup iPhone. Go to Settings>iCloud and then scroll down to Backup. Here you can turn backups on and initiate a new backup immediately. Prepare your Apple iPhone for Return or Repair Make sure your computer has the latest version of iTunes. Connect your iOS device to your computer. Choose File > Devices > Back up. If you're using iTunes 10. 7 or earlier, right-click the device from the list and choose Backup Now. You should always have a recent back up. If you wait until you think you may need one, you're going to lose data at some point. If you don't have a recent back up (and by recent I mean within the last day or two), you should absolutely back up your phone before taking it in for service. Even if the odds are minimal, you should take the time to backup your data before the repair. Actually, you should make it a habit to backup data regularly. Once the device is broken or lost, there is no way to get the info you have stored in it back. You can replace your iPhone but you can't replace your memories. Your backups are stored in a MobileSync folder. You can find them by typing ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup into Spotlight. You can also find the backups for specific devices from Finder.

While a battery replacement may not in and of itself cause data loss, if anything goes wrong, it may wipe the iPhone or force the Apple technicians to restore it. A backup should always be performed as a regular activity.

3 Answers. The iPhone memory is non-volatile flash, which means that you won't lose data by disconnecting (or completely draining) the battery. However, you should *still* do a full backup before attempting any repair or sending in a device for service.

The screen does not contain any data, so replacing the screen does not affect the data on the phone. However, unless you are doing routine backups, it is just a matter of time before you lose all your data. If you have an iPhone, pay the fee for iCloud backup.

Baking soda. A folk remedy circulating online suggests a paste made from two parts baking soda to one part water can fix screens. Just make a thick paste and then use a cloth to rub it in. This should cover up the problem for a while.

Replacing the dead or dying battery in your iPhone or iPod may seem like a good idea, but it may not be worth it. It depends on how old the device is. If your device is still under warranty, yes, definitely replace the battery. With the warranty, the repair should be free or low cost.
