    Can I delete my old iCloud backup from my previous iPhone?

    I upgraded from a 4S to a 5 and both backups are in there which is taking up all of my space. The 4S backup is 2.8GB and the 5 is 1.9. I restored the 4S backup to my new iPhone 5, so I shouldn't need the old one anymore, correct?

    Just want to make sure.

    Once you get your 5 just how you want it, do a full (recommend encrypted) backup to iTunes and iCloud, and then I think it's safe to delete the old 4S backup.

    Great! Thank you! I have an unencrypted backup of the 4S on my Mac anyway, so I'll still have it somewhere should something terrible happen.

    Thanks again!
