A backup of the data on your device is very important since you have all kinds of important data on your device. One of the ways to back up the data on your device is to use iCloud. The iCloud system allows users to backup all of the data on their devices very quickly and easily. As long as you have a stable Wi-Fi connection, backing up your data is quite easy.
Does iCloud Backup Automatically
But can iCloud backup data automatically? According to Apple, iCloud can backup data automatically everyday as long as the device is connected to Wi-Fi and is plugged in. The backup can come in handy if you need to restore the device after data loss or you want to set up a new device.
How Often Does an iOS Device Backup to iCloud?

How to View Content on iCloud
One of the biggest problems users have is viewing the content on the iCloud backup files. While you can log in to iCloud.com and see the different types of content on your iCloud backup file, this process is in no way foolproof. You are still unable to view some of the data such as messages and some App data and there is no way to selectively recover data from your iCloud backup file.

This tool is known as iMyFone D-Back iCloud data extractor for Win or iCloud data extractor for Mac and it is a highly reliable and powerful data recovery tool that can help you get into an iCloud backup file and retrieve only the data you need.
