Basic Question about IOS

I am having recent trouble synching my book on my Scrivener IOS app to my Mac Scrivener the usual way via Dropbox and I don’t have the attention span right now to deal with all the troubleshooting recommended here to solve it. So, in the short term, I would like to know whether the .scriv data that I am working on on my iPad is being saved in iCloud like my pages docs are.

Do I have a backup anywhere being made as I work today, or is it unsafe to proceed to work on my book on my iPad until I get the brainpower together to figure out the synching issue?

Information about backing up iOS devices can be found here:

I did the first way mentioned in that tutorial, sending a zip file to the Files app. it is nice to know there is a way to manually save a backup. Better than nothing.
