I'm not very familiar with iPhone's iCloud backup mechanism and I have searched online expecting for an answer. Unfortunately, I got into confusion more than finding myself an answer.
What I have understood so far is;
- In the phone settings -> under your apple ID -> there's iCloud. Entering in shows how much space I have used and underneath that, says Apps using iCloud (where the Photos says
off). However, when I click the "manage storage" under iCloud shows the storage plan following with
iCloud Drive... etc. Further selecting on Backup shows the phone (e.g.: Joe's iPhone) following with
Now my question is why is it under Apple ID shows "APPS USING ICLOUD" and further drilling down toward "manage storage" under STORAGE shows another backup?
As I have pointed up on point 1, WhatsApp shows in both places. Does that mean it is backedup twice?
I'm not sure whether I'm making the point right but I'm a bit confused as to how the mechanism is working? whether do I have to necessarily do a complete backup or enable certain require backups such as WhatsApp, Photos/Videos, Viber... etc?
