Are you wondering what exactly was included in your iCloud backup for latest iOS 11.3 or other iOS versions? Knowing what is in the backup is the first step to manage the backup. You can then decide to leave some things out in future backups in order to free up some space. In this article, we are going to show you three ways to see what's in your iCloud.

Alternatively, you can also go to and sign in. You will see a list of different data types. Click on one of them to view the data.

Tip 3. See What's in iCloud Backup Using an iCloud Backup Viewer
