    I have four iDevices (iPad 1, iPad Mini 2, iPhone 5, iPhone 6), all designated to back up to iCloud. Each of the devices is charging, locked, etc. (except for my iPhone 6, three of the devices may not leave their charger for a couple of days), yet my backups are not daily, as should happen. This is especially disconcerting with my daily-use iPhone 6.

    As of now, I have had to force any iPhone 6 backups manually the last being 11/27, and the rest of the backups for the other devices were from: iPad 11/25, iPad Mini 11/28, and iPhone 5 11/30.

    Again, each of these devices is locked, charging, and connected to wifi every single night. I have plenty of iCloud storage space.

    Has anyone else had this problem, or able to offer a solution? I don't have time to sit around and initiate an iCloud backup manually each and every day on four devices. Hell, I don't have the memory to even backup one!

    I think it actually checks to see if there has been device changes that require a backup.

    I would concede to that opinion except for the fact that, at the least, there are always changes on my iPhone 6, as I use it daily, and frequently add or delete apps, contacts, calendars, texts, etc., what-have-you.

    I seem to recall always getting a daily backup, regardless of changes, previous to noticing it not backing up.
