How to Free Space & Backup iPhone Data to Cloud in Mainland China

Running out of space on your iPhone or Ipad (or other iOS device) in China?

While iCloud storage is quite affordable and fast from China, it can only back up everything. Here’s an alternative solution from 坚果云 ( in English that gives you more flexibility to choose what to and how to backup.

iPhone Cloud in China

There are iOS compatible cloud storage services like Dropbox that are great, but unreliable from China. That’s why if you want to use something else than iCloud, I recommend using a service that’s located within Mainland China.

Jianguoyun is mostly in English. It has a limited free version (automatic backups for photos only) and paid but affordable versions that have unlimited bandwidth.

  • 16.66RMB/month for 42GB and 1GB increase per month.
  • 33.33RMB/month for 96GB and 2GB increase per month.

And how it compares to iCloud in China;

  1. 6RMB/month for 50GB
  2. 21RMB/month for 200GB
  3. 68RMB/month for 2TB
