A little confused. Typically Apple gives everyone about 5GB of free iCloud storage.

So, if I have about 15-20GB of data (Music, Films, photos, etc.) on my iPhone 6s Plus, and back it up to the cloud, wouldn't\shouldn't it fail due to lack of storage space?

That's always my concern, hence why I always backup to my computer.

Looking forward to your feedback...

Do you have more than one device backed up on this iCloud account? Go to Settings > iCloud > Storage > Manage Storage to check the usage details.
