    I have 2.8 GB left of the 5 GB, and my iOS device backups only take up 1.9 GB. Everything else stored is in the low MBs. Yet, I constantly get reminded that my "Your iCloud storage is full" when I open Notes.

    What gives?

    They want your $$$ for more storage, yo. There's probably a service that runs around 3-2.5GB notifying you of low storage. I can see how that would be really annoying on the 5GB free option, but for those with 50GB or 100GB, a notification like that would be much more useful.

    Does the message say "almost full" or are you getting the message saying it's full and nothing can be backed up?

    You either missed my notification or couldn't be bothered to reply.

    Either way, have you recently bought a new iOS device? When one purchases a new device and it tries to make an iCloud backup, there isn't sufficient space for a completely new device backup.

    You missed the part in my initial post where I said my iOS backups take up 1.9 GB of space in total and there's 2.8 GB remaining :)

    My iOS devices don't back up anything requiring large amounts of storage.
