I have an iPhone 6+ and my girlfriend an iPhone 6. Can I backup her phone on my iCloud account? I have 200 gigs of space and would like to share backup space. Her phone is constantly displaying a message that her iPhone does not have sufficient space for backups.

Yes, you can backup as many devices as you have the ability to sign in to and have space for the backups in your iCloud, but iCloud Backup can only back up to the main iCloud account on a device.

  • 2 phones, one account… but would that work for 2 accounts?

  • from the OP - "Can I backup her phone on my iCloud account?" I'd have said, not unless they both use the same account - which isn't clearly explained in the post, but makes me feel it's 2 accounts, not one.

  • Cool - covers all the bases now. Thanks for your edit. Feel free to clear these comments if you think they're no longer required.
