Please follow the directions below to enable iCloud backup:

  1. Make sure your are connected to a Wi-Fi network
  2. Tap Settings > [Your Name] > iCloud
  3. If iCloud backup is not turned on, tap it to move the slider to on

When you iPad is connected to a Wi-Fi network, connected to a power source, and your screen is locked, the iPad will backup automatically.  These conditions happen mainly a night when you plug you iPad in to charge.
