If you’re planning to replace your existing device with a new one, there are a few things you will need to do to make sure you don’t lose your data.
Backup your Data
One option is to use iCloud to backup your data. There are a number of steps you need to follow to make sure myOilCache is included in your iCloud Backup. You’ll need to make sure you follow the instructions exactly.

**Remember, if you have an issue with your device and can’t restore from backup, you will likely lose your data.
My Recommendation: iTunes File Sharing
In addition to backing up your data (or if you don’t want to backup your data), I recommend using iTunes File Sharing to keep a copy of the databases on your computer.
It is an additional safeguard that can help to prevent you from losing your data when getting a new device or if something goes wrong with your current device and you can’t restore from backup.
I personally do not backup myOilCache to iCloud. Instead, I use iTunes File Sharing to keep a copy of the databases on my computer. Each time I add a number of items to the app or when the app is updated, I replace the databases with current ones.
It is more work to do it this way, but the. reason I do this is because if I have an issue with my device and can’t restore from backup (this has happened to me twice before) I won’t lose my data (as it is stored on my computer).
Also, if you want to have your data on more than one device, you can simply copy the databases to that device.
