Data elements are recorded passwords, settings Wi-Fi settings, statistics web pages, melannie.
iTunes is not able to encode backups on its own. To enable the encoding mode for the first time, you must activate the encryption function. Then the application will be able to independently carry out the process of encoding backups.
If necessary, you can use iCloud. It can generate additional copies of the data and encode them.
