Sync it, then check your preferences under the iPhone tab.

Not sure about on a Mac, but in Windows, click Edit, then Preferences and when the Preferences window opens, click the iPhone tab at the top center. It should tell you when the last backup was made.
In a nutshell, it's automatic when you sync.
