    What about if you turn off email on the iPhone?

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    Thanks Jake...

    I was going to contact Apple, but life interfered with my plans until yesterday. There were no changes made on the 6s since early last week, those changes did not result in reduced iCloud storage.

    Just be on the safe side, checked the iCloud storage on the 6s prior to contacting Apple. Low and behold, the iCloud storage shows as 7 MB used:

    I do not know why and how in less than a week time the iCloud storage reduced substantially, but I take it.

    To my knowledge, Apple makes deleted items available for 30 days prior to removing the item(s) from the account. If that's correct, this should not be the reason for the reduced iCloud storage size.

    Glitch in their system could be the culprit, but that's just speculation...

    Could be just a delay in updating the database of who is using what at Apple. I suspect that Apple doesn't keep any individual's data in one place, but has a db that knows that YOU have this and this and this stored here and here and here. So when you delete a file, it takes a bit to update the db to show that now you don't have that stored anymore.

    Either way, good to know you got the space you need.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but...

    Turning off email would only impact local storage, not the iCloud. The email account continues receiving emails in the iCloud, you just would not see it on the iPhone.

    Such is the case on my Iphone 8 Plus. I cannot see my iCloud email on my iPhone, but can in Outlook in Windows 10, where I manage them.

    That was my way of identifying where the issue was, either the iPhone connecting to iCloud, or iCloud itself.
