That's an email I received from Apple over the weekend. Shoot. I had no idea that iCloud would have limits when I first heard the benefits of using it. I mean Apple really touts using iCloud as storage for your devices to save space on the devices. The instructions are difficult for me to understand. Well, one of them is, the other is to send money to Apple to buy more space, that I understand.
The second way to free up more space is to delete the backups on the devices, we have 4 devices. The biggest issue for me is what this means. By deleting backups do you lose everything? If you delete the backup on one, will it delete on all?
I'm guessing the biggest memory hog on my iphone and ipads are photos so I figured I'd download all of them to my computer. A friend of mine who works for Apple came over last night and we did just that, put all photos onto my desktop computer. Now I guess it's time to get up the nerve to delete them from the phone and ipads. Neither of us really knows if that will help the iCloud storage space.
Then do I turn off Photo Stream? I don't know.
If all this sounds like jibberish, it is.
