In less than a year I've somehow managed to nearly reach the 5 gb limit for free iCloud service using my iPad and iPhone. Just got an automated email from Apple. I was trying to run minimal use of iCloud, backing up the necessities to iCloud, using it to keep my contacts, calendar and mail in sync, and leaving photos and music on my iMac. Hope I can manage the settings to stay within 5 gb, which seems like a lot for the minimum I want to use iCloud for.

I checked the backup settings on both devices: the main culprit was Camera Roll. I need to be more careful about removing photos from the Roll and saving them on my iMac. That freed up a lot of space.

Longtime Windows, then onto slippery slope with iPod/iTunes in 2006, then Apple TV, iPad, iMac, iPhone, rejuvenated a discarded MacBook and, finally, Apple Watch. Happy camper.
