"I have uploaded all my photos to iCloud Photo Library, but the storage is coming to full soon. Is there any way to back up iCloud photos so that I cloud delete all of them?"

As the free online storage service that Apple provided officially, iCloud Backup is one of the commonest ways to back up and sync iPhone data. However, there are many problems while using iCloud. The first thing you should pay attention to is the storage limitation. iCloud has only 5 GB free storage. So, when you have uploaded tons of photos, you might already reach the top. The easiest way to deal with this is to delete some photos and make a room for other data.

How to back up iCloud photos before deleting them?

Step 1. Start your computer and open the web browser. Go to and log in to your Apple account.

Step 2. Find the category Photos, then select the photos you want to back up and delete on iCloud. With pressing Ctrl button, you will be able to select multiple photos at the same time.

Step 3. Move your mouse to the upper right, find the button "Download selected items", which looks like a cloud with down arrow.

Step 4. Click the button and the browser will start to download the photos immediately.
