ICloud Backup Steps to Skip Photos and App Data

March 7th, 2017 No Comments »

Here are the steps I believe one needs to make sure they go through to make sure that minimal is backed up.  That is, no photos, no netflix movies, etc.

  • Settings/ICloud – Turn off ICloud Drive;Turn off Photos,Mail…
  • Settings/General/ICloud-Manage Storage
  • Settings/ICloud/Backup On and backup

I’ve noticed that when you into the last step, it will show you how much it wants you to backup and also let you deselect items to backup. However, when I deselect them, the backup seems not to get smaller.¬† I’m confused.
