I have a 10GB iCloud Backup that I think was made when I still had IOS 9. I downgraded since the battery was horrible but now I'm unable to delete that backup. I tried on my iPhone and my Mac settings. It just says try again later.

Anyone experience this before?

Same here but it's for a 200MB file. Maybe we have to be on iOS 9 to remove it?

ipad mini downgraded to iOS 8.4 b4, now ipad icloud backup has been literally disabled.
iPhone fail to downgrade because I will lose all my data if I go DFU.

wish mine was that small

my two backups (iPhone and iPad) add up to ~7GB but iCloud swears it's taking up ~18GB of space...

There's definitely something quite wonky with icloud and b1, I've got something like 6gb of 'missing' space too, comparing sizes of everything listed vs what is available.

Just update to iOS 9 B1, delete it then downgrade back to 8.3/8.4.
I went back to iOS 9 to delete the backup, and still the same error message. I'm guessing this is a bug of some sort.

Agree. I've just had the "This iPhone hasn't been backed up in two weeks" yet it's backed up every night.

I've also got a out 10GB missing storage space too!
