The lowest hanging iCloud storage fruit ripe for pruning can be found in Mail and you can liberate a lot of space by deleting everything from your Junk and Trash folders a€” Go to Mail and click Trash in the left sidebar, press Command + A (Select All) and then hit Delete. Going forward, you can limit how much Junk and Trash cruft accumulates on iCloud by automatically deleting items after a set period of time a€” I’ve configured Mail to automatically delete Junk and Trash items on iCloud after one month. If for some reason you feel a need to back up Trash and Junk, you can store it on your Mac. The truth is, we all collect some old, outdated, no-longer necessary files over time, but the good news is deleting them easy, and can really help free up your iCloud space.
Question: My iPhone keeps nagging me that its iCloud backups are full, and that I should delete some backups or pay for extra storage.
USA TODAY is now using Facebook Comments on our stories and blog posts to provide an enhanced user experience. Another reason why you’d want to delete an old iPhone backup from iCloud is if you know it contains a corrupted file. Please let us know if you have any question by leaving a note in the comment section below. This works, how ever, I belive and I’ve only seen it show the last back up as in one made since a big change.
Some people might not know how to do the backup thing especially if they are visually impaired like myself. That’s a great guide if you want to delete an iCloud backup, but make sure you have an iTunes backup at hand for restoring, you never know when you might need it!
Press and hold the power button and the home button at the same time for 10 seconds or until the device turns off, after that let go of the home button and keep hold of the power button until it turns on and you see the apple logo.
I can not delete the data in iCloud it show the message like below then i try to turn off and delete it from my PC it still impossible please help thanks! This backup cannot be deleted because it is being used to restore another device, or a backup is currently in progress. What do you do if the phone tells you that by removing iClod (not a typo) you wil be also removing all your photos..
I deleted my iCloud account and everything, but all the music is still there with a cloud next to it for download?

A tech at the iPhone store deleted an old backup because I needed more storage (even though I had bought more) an all my appts that were created on the old phone (4) were wiped out of my calendar. Hi, i wan’t to ask when you delete a backup from icloud then you delete the account, do you delete it permanently or not ? This is great information but what I have been unsuccessfully trying to find out is if you agree to delete *AND TURN OFF* your account – how do you then turn it back on?
I have done these step both on my laptop and on my iphone but all i get is can not delete at this time …Try again or cancel . In Mail, right click (two-finger tap) on Junk (or Trash), select Get Account Info and then Mailbox Behaviors. Then click the Summary tab and then under Backups > Automatically Back Up, select This Computer and then Back Up Now to seal the deal.
You no longer need a desktop machine to manage your data as everything can be done directly from the device. Even if the first 5GB are free, you probably will go over this allocated storage, especially if you have several iOS devices, and you will be required to pay a monthly fee for increased storage. You will now see all your latest backups for all your devices that are connected to iCloud with the same Apple ID.
How then can you show older back ups let’s say from ewhen I first got my phone last year.
I am doing this to try and recover some lost notes, but i accidentally backed my iphone up again.
However, now when I try to backup my iphone it says I have too little storage and need to purchase more. Because i am trying to delete my account and make a fresh Backup but i get always the old one specialy with my notes app it doss not back it up at all,and it is turn on. I removded my phone from icloud backup; however, how do I remove the contacts from her device? I am doing it for more space, so I want to be sure I can still use iCloud easily on my phone after.
If you have more, you need to manage your iCloud storage by backing up needed data and deleting the rest.

You can see not only your overall usage (bottom of the above window), but also how much space each app is using by clicking on its icon.
As you can see on the image below, it is taking a big chunk of my iCloud storage, with a size of 6.7 GB. I sign in to icloud site try to manage from there but you don’t have many choice, can some one help with that? Apple only provides 5 GB for free and 1 TB maximum, and while higher capacities are cheaper than ever, if you don't want to pay more, you're going to have to clean some stuff out. And you may not realize this has been happening until you start getting warnings from Apple that you're about to max out your quota and are invited to spend $20 a year for an extra 10 GBTo see what's taken the biggest bite of your free 5 GB allotment, open the Settings app and select iCloud, then Storage & Backup, then Manage Storage.
Problem is nothing is happening when I press any button or icon and this display is on the main screen since yesterday. The app will list them in order of decreasing size.On an iPhone that had been displaying this nag, the leading offender was Camera Roll — all the photos and videos taken with the phone — at about 5 GB by itself. Starbucks' iPhone app was in second place, having somehow piled up 5 megabytes and change of data and settings.
Only a handful of other apps, including Evernote, Skype and Twitter, had piled up more than a megabyte of info.The obvious answer in that case — and in most, I'll guess — is to exclude Camera Roll from the automatic backup. You can (and should) still backup photos to a Mac or PC with iTunes, but you don't need to do that as often as you might think. The other is Photo Stream's all-inclusive behavior — it syncs every image automatically, leaving it to recipients to delete them later on.
This can create extra work for spouses of tech writers who keep taking screenshots of new apps, funny error messages and other computing minutiae. That's where almost all applications store their data and settings, such as e-mail, address-book entries, calendar appointments and Web-browser bookmarks.The Library folder was still around, but Apple had made it invisible to users and has kept it so in the recent Mountain Lion release.
