    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?

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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!
