"I have limited internet at home. My iPhone is telling me that I need to do a backup to iCloud but I am nervous about how much data will my iCloud backup will use. How can I find out just how much data it will need?
You can approximate the size of your next iCloud backup by following these steps:
- On your iPhone, go to Settings -> iCloud -> Storage -> Manage Storage.
- Tap on your iPhone (or iPad) name under the Backups heading. It will be the one that has 'This iPhone' (or 'This iPad' under it).
- The amount of data used by your next backup can usually be approximated as the difference between the Next Backup Size and the Backup Size shown above that.
