    iCloud backup on your phone happens when you are connected to power and on wifi (like when you charge your phone at night etc).

    Once enabled this happens automatically. No need to be connected to iTunes.

    To switch iCloud backups on go to Settings - iCloud - Storage & Backup and turn on the iCloud back up option.
    It will happen automatically but you can force an immediate cloud backup in this menu too
