    On my phone I have "Backup size 1.5GB" on my iPhone. My question is, what exactly is this 1.5GB??

    Under backup options I have almost every app turned OFF. The only apps that I do have on, are the ones the occupy the very least amount of memory (totaling less than 1MB). I have zero photos, no mail back-up. The only backup I have on are: contacts, calendars, reminders, safari, notes and find my iphone. Is it possible these equal to 1.5GB?? I have like 30 contacts (no photos), I have very little calendar data, very few reminders, maybe 6 notes. I don't get it. What could be taking up the 1.5GB?

    <tinfoil hat> Perhaps all your location data tracking where you go?
