Mobile Backups - How Often?

Ok, Figure I start a topic about this because even though I've been in the IT industry as it's been my life for past 16 years I have made the stupidest mistake.

I have not backed up my IPhone 6+ in over 18 weeks. I used to do this regularly once a week but somehow broke this habit. WTF, my phone is my work phone besides personal phone. If my phone crash's i'm in big trouble if I loose work data/client numbers from it because of not backing it up for a long time when the phone crash's or breaks.

So I did the backup now and happy about that. I wrote a sticky note on my desk to backup phone every Saturday morning as a remember.

What's the longest you have gone without doing a full backup of your phone?

Did you actually get screwed badly by not making a backup once a week?

It's important we all take extra care of our phones because some of us use them as work phones and new data or contact numbers you might add each week.

Mostly I don't backup the data on my phone as long as it does not run out of memory to capture a moment or install an application etc. The data is safe on my phone till I format it. When I do format the phone to update the software or clean it up once if it slows down then only I do take a backup.

Roughly I take a backup once in a year or worse.

Even though my phone is new as I upgrade every 2 years, I make full backups a lot as it's my work phone and personal phone. I would be lost with no contacts as in clients.

1 year may be since I usually backup by phone if my Storage ran out of space or while rooting phone.

Nop, Long back my phone was soft bricked but thanks to third party recovery software i was able to recover some files.

When it comes to contact i usually import by contacts list to External storage or in Sim.

With Android I don't have the fear at least

In an Android phone Google automatically backs up all the contacts to the register gmail associated with the device. So, there is no question of losing the contact even I won't take a backup .

I am thinking if frequent periodic backup is really necessary or not !!!

I backup my android phone once in the month Include Contacts, Messages, apps and Photos to my PC. And also setup a Google Drive backup using Super Backup app which automatically do a backup over a week when I'm on WiFi.
