I broke my iPhone 5, so I got a iPhone SE but I still have the iCloud backups for my old iPhone. I cannot backup my iPhone SE before I delete my old iPhone backup because my iCloud storage is full.

Would deleting my old iCloud backups ruin anything on my new phone?


No it shouldn't, because the backups don't affect anything anyway.

The short answer is no—deleting your old iPhone backup from iCloud is completely safe and won’t affect any of the data on your actual iPhone. In fact, even deleting the backup of your current iPhone won’t have any impact on what’s actually on your device. The information stored in your iCloud Backups is just that—a backup, or copy, of what is currently on your iPhone.
