Don’t be upset! There are several reasons why is my iCloud storage after deleting photos and you can follow the instructions below.

  • Recently Deleted Album: When you delete photos from your iCloud Photo Library on your device, they are moved to the "Recently Deleted" album instead of permanently deleted. These photos remain in the "Recently Deleted" album for 30 days before being automatically removed from your iCloud storage. So, if you have deleted a large number of photos recently, they might still be taking up space in the "Recently Deleted" album.
  • iCloud Backup: If you have iCloud Backup enabled, your device may be backing up other data like app data, device settings, and messages. Even if you delete photos, the backup might include other data that takes up space.
  • Other iCloud Data: Apart from photos, iCloud may be storing other data such as documents, app data, emails, and more. These files can also contribute to the overall storage usage.
  • Shared Albums: If you have shared albums with other users, the photos in those albums will also be counted against your iCloud storage quota.
  • Multiple Devices: If you use iCloud on multiple devices, the storage usage can quickly add up, especially if you have enabled synchronization for other types of data like contacts, calendars, and notes.
  • App Data: Some apps might use iCloud for storing data, and this data can accumulate over time.

The above 6 solutions on why is my iCloud storage still full after deleting photos must solve your problems. And if you are going to thoroughly delete photos from your iCloud, you could backup them to a local position or a cloud drive before in case you want to find them in the future.
