Recently my iCloud backup for my iPhone SE has grown and my 5GB free iCloud is almost full.

Is there a way to view what is included in the backup, to find the biggest items, and possibly remove them?

Note: I don't have a Mac computer.

About the duplicate: That question is about the next backup and it's size, this one is about the existing backup on iCloud. This are two different. My "Next Backup Size" is a mere 64 MB.

  • @ankii that question begins with "iCloud has space", while in my case it is "iCloud is almost full" (actually it is 100% full) Commented Nov 3, 2019 at 17:37
  • but it still gives hints about where to look. If your doubt is cleared, even in the question, I'd support the closure. If not, do clarify, how that question doesn't help you, rather than how these are different.

  • Unlike Time Machine, an iOS iCloud backup is always a snapshot. So if you want to reduce the size of the backup, change the content of the next backup and then trigger a backup.
