    This has to be a joke...

    Have seen terrible repercussions since updating:
    - Auto connecting to any wifi network / despite me always turning off wifi when not on a familiar network.
    - Much reported battery issue's
    - Logging into FB manually w/ password each time via app
    - Messenger not sending messages to certain clients

    But now...my final straw. Just got warning of "iCloud storage almost full"
    Most disgusting part about it on Apples behalf - they want to CHARGE 0.99cents for overages.

    This has to be some sort of joke...

    Have owned iPhone from Gen1 till now - never a change in between. This may be my cue ... (sadly)

    iCloud you control, so if it's full see why that is the case and how to deal with it. Apple won't somehow charge you on their own.

    WiFi can only connect to known networks that you've connected to before, so it won't be connecting to just any/all networks.

    Why don't you just go through iCloud and see whats using up the space instead of blaming Apple?

    I bought iCloud storage for Photos, so its not an issue, but the 5GB was always sufficient for me until iOS 7 or 8, I think, when iCloud started backing up PURCHASED books. This bug is still persistent. Normally, iCloud doesn't back up items purchased from Apple; it backs up the data, but the actual items will be redownloaded upon a restore (i.e. a purchased song won't take up any space in an iCloud backup, but will be re-downloaded form iTunes to your library when you restore). However, this doesn't seem to be the case with iBooks, my entire iBoks library is physically backed up to the cloud, eating away a good chunk of space.

    This wasn't the case with iOS 6.

    It looks like they give you the option not to use iCloud for iBooks.

    That's different, that is for accessing non-purchased iBooks (like PDF's you download, or eBooks from other sites) across devices by storing them in iCloud.

    The Facebook and Messwnger issues are not widespread, and Apple will not just automatically charge you for using up all your iCloud storage. However you can buy additional storage for really cheap. I get 50GB for .79p per month!

    Check if iCloud Photo Library has been enabled. On my 7 Plus it had been automatically enabled after the update, so I had to disable it and then delete everything that had been uploaded from the iPL.
