    Hi guys,

    I'm wondering how can I duplicate my iCloud backups for my iPhone and my iPad.

    Let me explain:

    You guys know that iOS 6 will go in beta probably in a month or two. I usually test the new iOS beta software on my devices but if I backup my devices using iOS 6, I won't be able to get back to iOS 5.1 and use my iOS 6 backup from iCloud if something is wrong in the beta.

    So, what I would like is to keep a iOS 5.1 backup aside so when I'll be going in iOS 6, I'll be able to do a backup of iOS 6 and if something is wrong in the beta, I'll be able to get back to iOS 5.1 and put my iOS 5.1 backup without trouble.

    Disable iCloud backup in iTunes so that it backs it up locally. Then if you want iCloud backups again just re-enable it (it'll re-upload everything again).
