    My iCloud backs disappeared last night and iOS 9 will no longer backup to iCloud. I made iTunes backups for the time being.

    Probably just resetting/wiling the system before GM launch.

    Keeping local backups while using beta releases is a good idea no matter what. Still, good that you point it out.

    Mine is gone as well. iTunes says the last iCloud backup was in July. The betas don't backup like the regular releases, glad you pointed this out.

    Mine are gone, for both my iPad and iPhone. I have local backups anyway... but it would've been nice to get a heads up from Apple (like they did last year with the iCloud wipes leading up to each beta release). I also can't reenable iCloud backup on either device, but hopefully that's just a temporary issue until the GM is released...

    I doubt it. I've never seen a GM launch the day before the keynote.

    But who knows, Apple has been wonky lately. We may be surprised!

    It's probably to clean up phantom backup issue. Mine is still not fixed, however.

    Thanks for the heads-up. Just checked mine and both my iPhone and iPad backups have gone. I've got back my phantom 30GB of missing space tho.

    They're transitioning from the beta to production servers... it's that kind of time. And backups better work flawlessly or a LOT of people are going to be pissed come release day.

    I checked my iphone 6+ and ipad air 2, both PB Beta's, and the backups are missing / July last date
    I’ll make a local backup tonight before the GM launch.
    PS always make a local back up

    Mine isn't backing up either. Turning off iCloud backup and turning it on again didn't fix it for me.

    Let's hope all beta users notice this issue and backup with iTunes before they upgrade!

    Same here! It's been that way for a few weeks now, though. Hope it works again!

    As a heads up to anyone doing local backups - unless you enable encrypted backups, your health data won't be backed up...

    I think part of the PB made you use encryption as your back up,
    but good point 'Use encryption"

    I can no longer even choose to backup to iCloud while using iOS 9.1 beta 1.

    My devices ran iCloud backups automatically last night for the first time since installing iOS 9 beta. All other iOS 9 backups have been manual so for me this is working again.
