Check settings > general > restrictions, if Restrictions are enabled either disable them or make sure that changes are allowed to accounts.

So far as apps are concerned, none of them are actually stored in your iCloud storage allocation, your iTunes account keeps a history of them and allows you to redownload them at any time should you need/wish to.

 

If you enable document syncing, all your iWork documents are stored in the cloud that are on your mobile devices, you would need to add any documents you wanted to add from your Mac at iCloud.com where you can also see which documents are stored in the cloud.

    Thanks! I tinkered on the settings and found the solution but thanks for responding. This is indeed the answer. I got an email from icloud. Now another probably stupid question, how will I know what apps, docs, or anything from my iPad are now in the cloud? Will I know whats inside or I will only know if I plug another apple device?
