    Hey! I have previously had an app backed up with icloud. I have tried many times to delete the app from icloud without success.

    1: I have uninstalled the app completely from the phone.
    2: I have tried to factory reset the phone.
    3: I have also switched to another iphone.
    4:I have deleted all backups from my apple id
    5: I have been in contact with apple support and they could also NOT help me delete that app from icloud backup.
    4: Apple Support has said that their engineers should look into it and come back with an answer.

    it has now been a month since I contacted apple and they still have not solved the problem or got back to me. they just say they're watching it. how long can this take? does anyone have any tips on how I can delete that app's backup?

    To delete an app from your iCloud backup, simply go to Settings → your name at the top of the page → iCloud → Manage Storage → Backups → select your iPhone → Show All Apps and then disable the toggle next to the app you want to delete.

    If you delete the app (not remove it but uninstall it) then do an iCloud backup, said app won’t be saved
