Automatic iCloud backup over wifi while charging not working

As above.

In restrictions , I had locked changes to accounts. I imagine this is why it is not backing up over wifi to the cloud. Seems a bit of an overkill to prevent auto backups, if that's the reason.

I was having the same issue with my Ipad. I finally clicked on the apply button in the lower right hand corner of iTunes "after checking sync over wifi", then just unplugged the ipad when it was done. All is good now. iPad shows in itunes even when unplugged, and the sync now button in settings is active. Hope this helps.

Thanks . Will it sync over wifi to the computer while iTunes is open , rather than to iCloud ? If that makes sense. I like to to periodically back up to my laptop too .
