    I'm not sure what's going on. iCloud backup is working fine on my 6. Showing last backed up 4 hours ago.

    Seems old backups can't be deleted and don't show up against the total space but backups are there and if a new backup will go over, it fails.

    I've got the same problem. Can't backup any devices even iOS 8 because it says not enough space.

    So file a feedback item and hopefully devs are filing radars and apple get this worked out.

    All of these backup problems are scaring me :(. They are the only thing that is holding me back from using the iOS 9 PB. I have a great deal of data stored in iCloud and I do not want to take any risks with it.

    I'm having this problem also. Ugh.

    Also, iOS 9 turned on iCloud photo backups (was previously turned off) and I can't turn it off. So it is trying to back up way more data than I want it to. After clicking on "Choose the data you want to back up" no choices come up. It just says "Next Backup Size: 25.5GB "

    If you have anything in iCloud more than backups I wouldn't upgrade. It's a minor inconvenience to use iTunes instead. Like the ol days

    Dev account not public beta, and iCloud backups haven't worked at all since going with iOS 9. Not much fun.

    I just got a backup to work on my iPad. I was showing 8gb free. It was a 1.2 Gb backup but now I have 2.6gb free. Def wonky.

    Back up through iTunes then you wont have to worry about data loss.

    Unless the backup in iTunes is corrupted (which did happen to me). Thank heavens for apps like iExplorer. ;-)

    This is a bug they are aware of, my report was closed as a duplicate.
