My icloud account kept telling me it was nearly full. I had only 1 back up listed on my iphone (i don't have a mac etc) and the same on the dashboard on my laptop. I deleted the 4.9gb backup (nothing important- full of photos and videos already saved elsewhere) and now i have the full free 5gb listed in my storage. Does this mean my iCloud storage is now completely empty?
By default, iCloud storage is 5GB large. So if you're saying under
- Settings > iCloud > Storage
you're seeing 5GB available, then yes your iCloud storage's been emptied.
