IPHONE 5 ICLOUD FREE: iCloud comes free with 5 GB of storage, but if you shoot a lot of video or backup many devices to the service, you might just want to upgrade your storage options.
$20 a year gets you 15 GB total, $40 per year allows for 25 GB, and $100 a year will provide 55 GB of iCloud storage. You can upgrade to each option (or downgrade for your next payment cycle) via the iCloud settings on your device.
1. Go to Settings and select iCloud. You’ll see some apps here, but notice these are only the pre-installed Apple apps! We want to find all the apps.
2. Scroll down to Storage & Backup, and tap it.
3. Choose the third choice shown, Manage Storage.
4. Select the entry for your iPhone under Backups.
5. Here, you’ll see a list of the top five storage-using apps. Scroll down and click Show All, and then select, app by app, which items you want to back up.
6. Decide which of your apps you don’t want to back up; toggle those to “off.” A red button reading “Turn Off & Delete” will appear.
If you click it, you’ll still have the app and its data locally on your iPhone; you’re just “deleting” its data from iCloud’s backup.
At the bottom of the screen, you’ll see how much space you have available. If you can clean up your app backup, you should be able to better optimize that free 5GB.
