    Hi .
    I'm trying to empty my 5gb of icloud storage. I have no photos on my phone and have turned off ALL back up options . In theory , I have nothing to backup . But I'm still being told that my next back up size is 1.8gb . How can this be ?? It's driving me mad . Any help would be great .
    Cheers

    It uses incremental backups. So deleting data now, doesn't necessarily free up previously backed up data.

    You need to open the iCloud app, and delete your old backup, and start a new one fresh.

    I have this issue as well and it still says that my backup is 5.7gb even though i've turned everything off and deleted all backups.
