DW loves to read. She'll read a book from first page to last in one sitting. Recently, she downloaded a free book onto her Apple I-11 phone. When she finished she deleted the book. Then, we started wondering if would remain in the cloud. We don't want to use all her cloud storage on deleted books. How would one delete it from the cloud, if that's possible. Thanks.

Where did she download it from, and what does that site say about it being stored in the cloud? I download from Amazon (Kindle format) all the time and the books are not stored in the cloud.

If she has an automatic backup, it MIGHT be keeping a copy in the cloud even if she deletes it from the phone. You will have to delve into the mysteries of Iphone syncing to figure that one out.

Ebooks are NOT big files, and she would need THOUSANDS of them to consume any significant space in cloud storage. Not something you need to worry about, really.

If she’s reading the book with Kindle or Nook I’m fairly sure books stay on their servers and not in her ICloud account.

On edit: Only the books she has downloaded to her device are stored on the device. As I recall IOS backup does not backup the apps you have on the device, but it does tracks what apps you have and will download them again from the App Store when required.

I have both Kindle and Nook, and neither app stores data on my iCloud account.

Doesn't she have access to the cloud account where she can see what's stored there? And delete unneeded files?

Coolmom42: Thanks for the info. If it's not a significant issue we just won't worry about it.

Dutch_12078: We haven't had these Iphones very long and are still in a learning stage. There probably is a way to look to see what's stored there. We'll keep playing around with our new phones. Thank goodness for grandkids. This stuff seems to come natural to them.[emoticon]

DW ordered a Kindle "Fire-10" e-reader from Amazon. Loves it so far. Lots of free books to read.
