    Is it still important to backup your iPhone with iTunes? We now have iCloud backup which is every time we plug in the phone.
    What are the advantages?

    Thanks

    Technically not required.

    But it's always better to have 2 backups. Just in case ;)

    I still backup manually to iTunes and turn on the encrypted option. This way if I have to restore all the iOS apps will be restored with their passwords in place and I won't have to go through all eleventy million apps and manually reenter passwords. An iCloud backup will not restore apps with their passwords intact.

    Also, like iKaushai said, I like the idea of having a local backup in case iCloud tanks.

    iCloud Backup + Jailbreak + 3G Unrestrictor = Never having to think about backups.
