Icloud is the paid backup solution offered by APPLE. You get a free 5GO plan on your Apple account. Thanks to ICLOUD it is possible to back up your iPhone but also its IPAD.

Check your iphone storage

In the tab Settings then General and finally Iphone Storage you can quickly see the‘remaining storage space.

If you only have a few MB free then look no further, you will have to make a little more space.

Indeed Icloud needs a tampon to be able to make your backup, in my case I had 300 MB left which was too little, I went up to 1 GB and the backup started correctly.

To free up space you can delete old SMS, photos from your What’sAPP messaging or unnecessary Applications. The IOS ranks the applications that consume the most data.
