Most of that is in iTunes, but SMS is different.

Indeed, it is very easy to backup iPhone to pc: iTunes or iCloud is available and they are easy to operate. For example, use iCloud to backup your iPhone in this way: Go to Settings>iCloud and then scroll down to Backup.Here you can turn backups on and initiate a new backup immediately. If this is your first iCloud backup it might take a while to complete. Once the backup is complete, though, your iPhone will automatically backup when idle for an extended period of time and on an active wi-fi network. Of course, it is also simple to restore from iCloud after resetting your phone and choose "backup from iCloud".
