    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 .

    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.
