    How long does it take you to back up your iPhone/iPod touch/iPad?

    It always seems to take a long time for it to back up.

    Does it matter on your internet connection speed? Does it matter on your computers specs determining on how fast it backs it up?

    I was wondering how long your device takes to back up.

    - My connection speed is 25/25
    - A 2.O GHZ MacBook

    Thanks for helping.

    Takes mine about 5 minutes if I haven't backed up in a while.

    I don't remember where I've read this amazing tip that saved me so much time in backing up!

    Problem:
    when you back up, iTunes copies everything from the Camera Roll. It does this EVERY time! even if you don't have anything new. Thus taking very long time to back up.

    Solution:
    Import ALL your photos and videos from your camera roll, put them in iPhoto (or a normal folder), delete them from the camera roll. and sync them to the iPhone. and every time you shoot something or take picture, do the same:

    -import from camera roll
    -save in iphoto/folder
    -delete from camera roll
    -sync through itunes

    1-2 minutes, maybe 5 if I haven't done it for a few weeks. That said, my iPhone only has about 8gb of stuff on it
