If you see a category called Others in your iCloud storage

When you view your iCloud storage, you may see a category called Others. This is a grouping of categories because smaller screens can't always fit every category name. For example, Mail and Messages in iCloud may be combined into Others on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, but they'll still appear with their true category names on your Mac.*

Others can contain various categories — it depends on what you store in iCloud, and whether you're in a family that shares storage. Usually, your two largest storage categories have their true category names displayed on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, and the rest of your categories are grouped into Others.
