I briefly saw the Next Backup Size entry on my phone deep in the Settings somewhere, but not I cannot find it at all.

Where exactly is it?


Settings → Apple ID → iCloud → Manage Storage → Backups → This iPhone/iPad.

This location is documented at https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204247 in the section titled Choose which apps to back up but doesn’t spell out the next size calculation.

  • @bmike I don’t see a mention of the backup size calculation documented at that link under the section mentioned, only a mention of turning apps on and off for backup? – grg Apr 20 at 21:47
  • Holy smokes. You have to be an archeologist to find it. Thank you very much. – AngryHacker Apr 20 at 21:47
  • It documents the tap tap and the change from iOS 10.2 and 10.3 that changed where to find this handy tidbit, though. – bmike Apr 20 at 21:48
