    I had the first public beta on my iPad Pro and then reverted back to iOs 10. However, it doesn't seem to backup to the cloud anymore. I can't back it up to my iMac because i don't have enough hard drive space....Is this a bug? does anyone know a fix for this?

    Try deleting the old iCloud backup from iOS 11. It probably won't let iOS 10 backup over an iOS 11 backup.

    ^ This....you can't use that iOS 11 backup anyway, so delete it and let it create a brand new backup. If that still doesn't work, try logging out of iCloud and back in and see if that works. iCloud is still kinda buggy; I've noticed things like Safari bookmarks don't always sync with other devices. I'm sure there are other bugs as well, but that's just an example...

    So because icloud has automatically backed up my iPhone while on iOS 11 beta, I can't downgrade and l restore my iPhone to the iOS 10.3?

    I basically have to set it up as a new device, is that right?

    You’re supposed to archive any iTunes backup before you back up again on the beta.

    Annoying! Never mind. Only a few weeks until the actual release I guess.

    I'd like to delete the iOS 11 backup but I don't see it.

    You have to completely remove the backup in iCloud for your device.

    Currently on iOS 11 but somewhere under iCloud in Settings there should be a “Manage Storage” option where you can delete prior backups for iDevices associated with your Apple ID
