    I’m looking at my icloud storage on my iphone and I’m not certain, but it looks like my photos are being backed up twice. On the little colour bar which tells you what is using up the most of your storage, the two biggest percentages are ‘photos’ and ‘backups’. Photos I understand, however, ‘backups’ is taking up 63.66GB of my 200GB storage plan. When I go into the backup, it shows, ‘Photos library’ as being 55.77GB of the entire backup. The problem is the ‘Photos’ app desperately is using 59GB of my 200.

    So my 200GB is broken down like this:
    Total used 118.5GB
    Backups: 63.66Gb (Made up of ‘photo library’)
    Photos(app): 59Gb
    The rest is made up of docs, mail etc.
    So essentially, it looks like photos are being backed up twice. I can turn off ‘photos library’ in backups but I’m too scared to do that because for all I know it could delete all my backups and I have 11,000 photos so it would take me forever to reload them to the cloud.

    It sure sounds like it's being saved twice, BUT I would check with Apple before actually changing settings.....
