Here’s how to delete old backups and free space on iCloud

 

The most practical way to back up Apple gadgets is by storing the data on iCloud, which offers 5 GB of free in the cloud. However, if you switched iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, old backups may continue to take up space on iCloud. Follow the steps below and see how to delete backups of devices you no longer use.

Step 1. Open “Settings”, then touch “iCloud”. In the iCloud settings, touch “Storage and Backup”;
Step 2. Tap “Manage Storage” to view the backups stored in your iCloud account. To know the date of the backup, tap on it;
Step 3. Finally, after checking and making sure that the backup of that device is no longer needed, touch “Delete Backup” and confirm the action by tapping “Disable and Delete”.

Ready! That way, if your iCloud account space was nearing completion, you could free up a few megabytes and continue with the free plan or postpone the upgrade


You can free up iCloud storage space by deleting the full backup of an iOS device in iCloud, for example in the case of a device that you no longer own. If you are restoring a device from an iCloud backup, you must wait until the restore operation completes before you delete the backup.

WARNING: If you delete the iCloud backup on your iOS device, iCloud will automatically stop the backup of the device.

Instead of backing up your iOS device in iCloud, you can do so using iTunes. For information, see iTunes Help Make a backup copy of iPod touch, iPhone or iPad.

Delete a backup with your iOS device
Go to Settings> [your name]> iCloud> Storage (or Settings> iCloud> Storage); then touch Manage storage.

Touch the name of a device for which you do not need a backup. Next, touch Delete backup.

Delete a backup with your Mac
Select the Apple menu> System Preferences, click on iCloud, and then click Manage.

On the left, click on Backup copies. On the right, select an iOS device that you do not want to back up and click Remove.

If you can not see the backup copies on the left, your iOS device does not have an iCloud backup. For more information, see Backing up your iOS device in iCloud.

Delete a backup with Windows
Open iCloud for Windows and click Storage.

On the left, click on Backup copies. On the right, select an iOS device that you do not want to back up and click Remove.

If you can not see the backup copies on the left, your iOS device does not have an iCloud backup. For more information, see Backing up your iOS device in iCloud.

Understand how iCloud works

ICloud is Apple’s cloud storage system that operates in a very sophisticated way. The service works on the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch and is fairly simple to set up. Understand how iCloud works, learn how to set it up on your iDevice, and see if it is the ideal tool for saving your files.

Cloud Storage
The basic concept of iCloud is the storage of files in a “cloud”, a large-capacity online server. With this, you no longer need the hard drive of your device to store your data. The cloud service saves space on your computer or mobile device, and allows your files to be accessed through any Apple product connected to the Internet.

ICloud syncs all Apple devices with a kind of free online folder with 5 GB of space that can receive photos, text files, contacts and even applications. That is, everything you have can be saved in the cloud for free. In addition, if you want, you can buy more space to store your files.
Configuration in a few steps

Setting up iCloud is very simple. On your mobile device, select the “Settings” option. Here, there is an option dedicated only to the service. Activate the cloud and log in with your Apple Account (the same one used to buy apps in iTunes). With iCloud enabled, simply choose the files you want to share among all your devices. There are several options, such as emails, contacts, calendar, photos and data documents.

You can also configure the service on computers, including Windows. Just download the iCloud Control Panel and install it. The setting is similar to what happens on mobile devices. Just enter your Apple login and password, choose the products you want to sync, check the “automatic download” box and you’re done. Whenever you use iTunes, all files will be uploaded to your cloud automatically.
Backup

Another important point of iCloud is the backup of files. The service has a security system that, when enabled, synchronizes all of your files, both mobile and cloud. ICloud backs up iOS devices over Wi-Fi whenever you put the gadget to load.

Your personal data (including songs, apps, and books downloaded from iTunes) appears on your device automatically. For those who subscribe to iTunes Match, you can even download the entire iCloud music library.
