Just curious to see how much of the Icloud service people actually use.
I usually do about 4.5 GB.. most of that from video I have captured and pictures.
i think I'm around 3.5
I am not a big fan of Apple's vision of the cloud.
Besides contacts synching it's pretty useless to power users.
I like to create my own folders. Store my own PDF password protected documents in the cloud. Upload individual photos to the cloud.
That's why I think Microsoft One Drive/sky drive is superior. Dropbox is also very good.
i only use about 0.2 GB, i back up everything except mail and photos.
I have my 64GB phone filled (i sync to my mac) so there would be no use in backing up my pictures, they would never fit on iCloud.
For picture backup I use Dropbox and sky drive. I use iCloud for contacts and settings. I have iTunes Match for my music. iCloud simply does not allow enough space for all my photos and videos. Skydive works VERY well for photo and videos... Plus they give you an ADDITIONAL 3GB free if you install it on iOS and let it do your camera roll backups. So I have a total of 10GB which is plenty. I do use photo stream with my Apple TV but that's not exactly considered iCloud I don't believe.
I'm at 2.7 gigs used of 5. Backing up my iPad Air, iPhone 5 and iPod touch 5 to that 1 iCloud account.
only using 800 MB and I'm backing everything up.
I actually use the full suite and most of the apps I use plug into it/sync.
I'm using 492 mb. But I only have 8gigs
we are at 8GB... but we have three devices being backed up.
I am sort of undecrain how Apple justifies giving the same storage to a person with ONE device as they would to a person with ten. I mean I KNOW how they justify it, but still. Sucks.
It's simple really. If you can afford to own ten iOS devices you can afford to pay for extra storage to meet your needs.
iCloud is awesome. I wouldn't want to rely on any other cloud service.
How much of Icloud do you use?
About 300mb at the moment. Only backup device settings and a few games/apps to icloud.
I would backup more or even utilise it better if it were a little more flexible in terms of what you can backup/restore at times etc.
Using about 15.7GB.
My iPhone back-up is 12.6GB and iPad is 3.1GB.
.2 of 5.0
It think it's all Documents & Data
I have 50 gb of free data with Box. That is more than I'll ever be able to use.
About 7 gb used
Not much. Mainly back up to my MBP and use Google Drive for file storage. Occasionally I'll do an iCloud backup just to have another copy but it's rare.
That would be the justification. To the consumer, though, it's a ridiculous one.
IMO should be per device not per account.
I'm using about 2.5GB
Air and iPhone 5 using 3GB.
15GB of about 20GB.
That's like 3 iPhones and two iPads.
When you back up your photos can you just access them only from the cloud? completely have them off your device?
I use iTunes Match and have my iPad Mini backed up to it. I can't use it to backup my iPhone because it exceeds the allowed 5GB of space.
17.6 out of 25.0 GB used
Primarily device backups (4x iPhones, 6x iPads).
Are there many individuals with 10 iOS devices? Families, yes. But with family scenarios, there are privacy and control issues when everyone shares the same iCloud account (ditto for iMessage and FaceTime) - ever have a spouse or kid delete your contacts when they clean up "their" contacts list, or receive your iMessages because they accidentally (or intentionally) added your email address to their "You can be reached by iMessage at" list?
I look at iCloud as a personal solution, not a group solution. Let each family member have his/her own Apple ID for iCloud/FaceTime/iMessage/Game Center, then they each have 5GB. (They can still share a common iTunes Store account.)
