Just noticed today that since the install of beta 1, my phone has not backed up to iCloud. I did a manual backup today but it failed, three times on two different wifi networks. Anyone else have this issue? I want to backup before I move to B2.

Had a similar issue. Backup also states it's 0kb. I believe this is a known issue. I did a manual backup via iTunes to be safe. ;)

I never liked iCloud backups because they take hours and hours to restore. The good ole physical cable connection does the job of restoring under one hour.

Still broken for me on Beta 2. Also have the issue where there's a Backup that I can't delete now.

Working for me now. Did a backup. Hopefully still continues as the days pass.

Still screwed. There is a 9.8gb backup that it won't let me delete via iOS or OS X, and even though I have 20gb, it says I only have 200 something MB left and there's not enough room to make another backup. So I can't delete, or backup... To top it off every time I try to look at the iPhone in iTunes, iTunes hangs.... Bleh

Exact same issues here.. iPad won't backup because it says not enough space, ipad backup seems to have vanished from iCloud, along with ~6 gigs of used storage.

Neither my iPad or 6 plus backed up to iCloud whilst on Beta1. Would always fail. Now on Beta2 and backups working fine. Not had an issue with orphaned backup files or storage *crosses fingers*

I was able to delete my backup today without doing anything from OS X 10.11 iCloud panel. I just tried it to see if maybe Apple had fixed something on their end.

Testing backup now.
