iCloud includes 5GB of backup storage free for customers to use to backup contacts, calendars, notes, emails and photos. Users can also buy more iCloud backup space.
This backup method is perfect for folks that don’t feel comfortable manually saving all that information.
On occasion, users may experience a delay or a complete halt in the backup process and there are often a few culprits to troubleshoot
Let’s take a look onto how to access iCloud and then on to iPhone 6’s turning on issue without a device.
iCloud Storage Problems
The most common culprit for backup problems is that there is not enough available iCloud storage to accommodate what you are trying to backup. This is incredibly common due to people usually having more than the free 5GB available on their device.
If you have a 16GB phone and are using a majority of the storage for media, you will not be able to use iCloud in its free state. The upgrade options for storage are not too expensive however and are definitely a good idea for a piece of mind.
The upgrade options are 50GB for $0.99 a month, 200GB for $2.99 and 1TB for $9.99. Many customers will need to purchase additional storage right out the gate in order to accommodate their larger backups.
iCloud backs up everything on your device creating a snapshot of that given minute (much like MacOS’ Time Machine) so consistently having backup space available is good way to ensure a successful backup every time.
