Should you backup in the cloud? As often, it's a question of trade-offs.
iCloud backups have not eliminated this problem, but they have made it far less common. This is, like almost everything in tech, a trade-off: Your data is far safer from irretrievable loss if it is synced/backed up, regularly, to a cloud-based service. Your data is more at risk of being stolen ...
