    Can't find where this specifically has been asked.

    in the new iTunes where you have the ability to choose iTunes backup or iCloud backup it says for iCloud - backs up most important data(or something similar) and for the iTunes backup - backs up all data.

    Does anyone know what is backed up in iTunes that isn't for iCloud? What am I missing if I only do iCloud. I know if you password protect the iTunes you get account data but what else?
    Anyone know?

    Thanks

    This Apple Support article explains it pretty nicely.

    Some of the differences:

    There is no difference in what is backed up.

    As noted above, your iTunes library is just where you'd normally store a copy of your Music, Videos, Apps etc.
