Enable iCloud on Device
In order for PhoneSheriff Investigator to work, your child's device must connect to iCloud. On your child's device, go to Settings > iCloud.
On the iCloud screen, you should see your Apple ID and a list of options. If you don't, then iCloud is not enabled yet. Simply enter your Apple ID and password there to enable iCloud.
After iCloud is enabled, make the settings appear the same as the screens below:
All options should be turned ON except iCloud Drive and Keychain. Make sure those two options are turned OFF. Note: Don't setup Family Sharing.
The limit for a free iCloud account is 5 gigabytes, so you may choose to not upload the photos if you expect the device's camera roll to exceed that amount.
Perform iCloud Backup
After you have Enabled and turned on the options for iCloud, tap the Backup menu item from the iCloud screen. Then, make sure iCloud Backup is turned ON (Green).
After that, tap the Back Up Now command. The device must be plugged in and connected to Wifi. Wait for the backup to finish.
Since you turned on the iCloud Backup, this backup will automatically be performed once the device is plugged in, connected to Wifi and asleep.
Please note: Backups to iCloud are automatic, however iCloud sometimes delays the backups for 24-48 hours before they are accessible.
