    Hey, basically I've broke my iPhone 5 to the point of the screen not working but everything else is fine. I'm getting it replaced in a couple of days and the phone is set the to daily iCloud Backups. The last backup it did was 3 or 4 days ago and I need it to backup now or I need some way of getting photos off it while it is locked.

    I don't think the iPhone is connecting to Wi-Fi because I have restarted the phone and maybe it needs me to enter the passcode when it first boots up before it connects to Wi-Fi?

    If its on Wi-Fi I can get it to back up... Any ideas? Thanks

    If your phone is plugged in, locked, and connected to Wi-Fi, it should back up automatically.

    If the OP has had the device connected to a "trusted computer" just plugging the phone in should open the folder with all the images on it.
