Hello, I have tried and failed to view what is stored on my iCloud. I get lost trying to follow the directions I find on the internet. Can anyone explain to me in simple terms just what I need to do. Thanks in advance.

If you want to take a look online at what’s stored, go to www.icloud.com via browser. There are apps such as Photos, Pages, ... that show the files saved to iCloud.

If you intend to check your iCloud storage on the iPad, go to Settings - your name - iCloud. You’ll find apps using iCloud there. If you think that some of them don’t need to be connected to iCloud, disable them.

At the top, you’ll see “Manage Storage”. When you select it, you can change your storage plan, or see how much of your iCloud storage is used by apps. Tap one of the apps to delete data, or to see the names of files stored there.

Thanks for the info. When I go to iCloud.com I get the file I’ve uploaded. I knew about the settings option. I am already signed up for ICloud. I feel like I’m missing something.

Either do this on a computer, or request the desktop site on your iPad by tapping and holding the arrow in the search bar at the top in Safari, until “Request Desktop Site” appears. As soon as you’ve done this, it’s possible to log in to iCloud.
