    Default iCloud backup

    When I do an icloud backup it takes at least 4.5gb of the 5gb I have. Should I delete my previous backup every time? Does it only back up new stuff? I plan to upgrade and 10 more gb just because I have lots of iMovies and pictures I want to store.

    Default Re: iCloud backup

    It should only backup the changes but if you go into settings to iCloud it will show you what you are asking to have backed up and you may want cut down on that item. Otherwise you alternative is to buy more storage.

    This is what it backs up:

    The price of extra storage is a good deal when you buy 10GBs that's on top of the free 5. It's obvious but I figured I'll add that in
