    The issue in bullets:

    - I want to make iPhone (and iPad for that matter) backups to my iCloud account
    - I have enough free space on there to do so
    - I connect my iPhone 6S to iTunes via cable
    - I select iCloud as the backup option
    - I start the process of backup'ing now
    - The process finishes

    Afterwards iCloud is still set as the way I do backups but under Newest backups (Nyeste sikkerhedskopier in Danish on my screendump) the newest one, from seconds ago (9.50), is made locally. That's the problem. iTunes doesn't do what I tell it to.

    Any suggestions?

    Have you tried doing an iCloud backup from the phone itself?

    as C DM says try OTA - then backup to your mac - next delete the iCloud backup and try OTA again plugged in to mains

    The point of iCloud backup is so you don't have to connect to your pc/mac. What are you trying to accomplish?
