Online backup has been the coolest way of saving movies and pictures to a high number of iPhone users thanks to the iCloud option. However, just like normal space, online backup options can run out of space requiring the user to take some drastic measures. Movies on iCloud can be deleted in two simple ways namely the "Setting" option and the "Videos" app option. Both of these options are effective in deleting unwanted movies and gaining more space. The following is a procedure for iPhone users on how to delete movies from iCloud and hide some on iCloud.
