    woke up to a message saying my phone hasn’t been backed up in 2 weeks?

    Have iCloud auto backup turned on and when I checked it was on. Basically hasn’t backed up since I installed ios11

    Anyone else?

    Have you tried manual backup to see if it gives you an error message?

    I had to manually do it

    I toggled it on and off for future use

    Let’s see if it backs up tonight

    I had the same issue.

    In my case the problem was hard to find, but easy to solve.

    I just have the standard iCloud plan with 5 gigs.

    After each iOS update apple toggles on that photos are part of the backup.

    In my case that ment my backup was blown up with 3 extra Gigs plus the iCloud backup 1 gigs.

    There was simply not enough space to save the backup together with the 2 gigs of data i had in iCloud already.

    But the error message does not tell you that you don't have enough space and therefore the process is stopped.

    I unchecked Photos in iCloud backup and after that the backup could be created.
