We'll have to spend more time with the iPhone 5C to figure out if that's a worthwhile saving.
If you decide to remove the device from iCloud backup, then you can quickly get rid of it from the same menu screen.
If you have a device Backup that is eating up space, then you can reduce it to fit inside the free 5GB of space from Apple. In this instance, you can remove elements from the backup, which reduces the overall size of the storage space used, but still affords you some protection. The elements contained in that backup are deleted, but the other parts of the backup are still working. It’s worth knowing that you can back up photographs from an iOS device to another service, such as Dropbox or Google Drive. Note this is not really intended to be a guide to free up general space, and if you simply want quick ways to free up storage space in iOS go here instead.
The simplest way to delete Documents & Data on an iPhone or iPad is by removing the app and then re-downloading it again. Keep in mind that when you delete an app, and then re-download it, you will likely lose whatever data, logins, and other saved details from that app.
Once you have re-downloaded the app, that apps Documents & Data burden should be just about nothing, though as you use the app it will slowly accumulate more documents, caches, and data again. The way Documents and Data is handled with iCloud Storage is certainly preferable to the impossible to manually delete caches that show up in native iOS apps, since it offers more user control over what to delete and what to keep. That’s a good question, hopefully a future version of iOS will offer a manual option to delete app caches and app data. Is there really no way to get iOS to delete local storage Documents & Data without removing the app first? Just how bad is Apple storage management and data storage when even the Apple Apologist Jonny Gruber is critical?
It still makes no since that manually removing the cache was possible in betas of iOS 5 and then removed for literally no reason. That is interesting, I don’t recall the manual cache removal process existing in prior iOS versions but that makes it all the more mysterious that it is impossible in modern versions of iOS where the caches routinely take up huge amounts of data storage. The form-factor is unmistakably that of an Apple smartphone, though the glossy-finish plastic feels warmer and softer to the touch than the 5S's bevelled edges. There's something a little toy-like about it, though not in a bad way; it's solid and dense, and creak-free, and the weight is evenly balanced along the length.


There are more color options than on an iPhone ever before - red, blue, green, yellow, and white - and five different silicone covers that can be mixed and matched. If you look to the right of each device, you'll see how much space it is taking up (to the right of Backups is the total amount of space used by iCloud backup). Sometimes you find that one device (typically the one you use most often) is taking up more space in iCloud backup than the others. Removing the Camera Roll from iCloud Backups is a great way to reduce the amount of space taken up on iCloud Storage. One is usually app specific caches and other related app data, and the other is iCloud related files for an app.
Most of this data is expendable and in many situations for many apps that have large Documents & Data storage consumption, the data tends to be very heavy on caches. That may not make a lot of sense, but for the time being Apple offers no method in iOS to manually delete caches and app data, so instead if you want to delete that app data, you have to delete the app entirely. Do not do this if you don’t have login information saved elsewhere, and do not delete an app or its documents and data caches if you have important data stored within that app.
In the case of an app like Twitter or Instagram, much of the documents and data are simply caches from pictures and videos, and thus are usually not really critical to the apps functionality in any way, they just take up space.
Hopefully this same ability will come to the app specific local device storage Documents & Data types found on iPhone and iPad.

It’s so bad that Google is now parodying it with commercials, and the Great Gruber is even agreeing with Google criticism. I don’t have much stuff on my Mac beyond a couple of work apps but the 256 GB drive is nearly full, and it does not even have room for my iPhone to backup to.
I remember when I had a lot of good arguments to make in favor of Apple, but those are dwindling quickly.
Spotify on my iPhone for example takes up about 1 GB of documents data cache, Twitter takes up 500 MB of documents cache, Instagram about 600 MB of data cache, Facebook has 300 MB of data cache, etc.
I am starting to think Apple does not want to solve it, so that we have to buy bigger iPhones. Apple wants to make it pretty and right and a breath of air, but it’s simply inadequate.
Each has a grid of punched-out holes on the lower back, which allows you to see the underlying color, and a soft microfiber lining inside to avoid scratches.


Instead, it slots into the midrange, competing at several price points with the iPhone 5S (albeit with different internal storage). In this feature, we look at how to check for old iCloud backups, and how to delete them from iCloud. If you're struggling to keep all your devices into Apple's 5GB online iCloud storage, then switching off Camera Roll and using a different service for photographs can fix the problem. The fact they share the same name but have different functions, and are references in different sections of iOS Settings, is a little confusing, but they are different. This is typically the type of Documents and Data on an iPhone or iPad that users want to remove to free up some space. You should back up your iOS device before beginning so that you can restore in the event you mess something up. Many other iOS apps behave the same way, which is fine until you start running out of storage space, and since iOS offers no way other to directly take care of this rather than deleting and redownloading the app, it can be annoying. Apple needs to double or triple the size of all of its devices, 128GB and 256GB hard drives are not appropriate on $1500 and $2200 computers.
Apple is really nickeling and diming customers, and are increasingly hostile to customers and users. Exactly how resilient that plastic will be - even with a toughening coating - remains to be seen.
We'll also look at how to reduce the size of your vital backups so they can all fit into the free 5GB of space. Very quirky, very much a workaround, and no, not at all user intuitive, and not really recommended. Then you have a subdirectory for each app in the Documents area on the device itself, visible with Files, as well as directories for other types of media.
It reminds me a lot of how Microsoft treated PC customers in the 90s with total arrogance and disregard, and look where Microsoft is today. Caches are outside the document root, and all get spifflicated at once, whenever space is low or the user asks for it.
