How decrease app storage on the user's iCloud.

My app was rejected due to app storage on the user's iCloud. Before this uploading they approved it without any problem.
Apple rejection:
On launch and content download, your app stores 7.53 MB on the user's iCloud, which does not comply with the iOS Data Storage Guidelines.

Next Steps

Please verify that only the content that the user creates using your app, e.g., documents, new files, edits, etc. is backed up by iCloud as required by the iOS Data Storage Guidelines. Also, check that any temporary files used by your app are only stored in the /tmp directory; please remember to remove or delete the files stored in this location when it is determined they are no longer needed.

Data that can be recreated but must persist for proper functioning of your app - or because users expect it to be available for offline use - should be marked with the "do not back up" attribute. For NSURL objects, add the NSURLIsExcludedFromBackupKey attribute to prevent the corresponding file from being backed up. For CFURLRef objects, use the corresponding kCRUFLIsExcludedFromBackupKey attribute.

    Check the size of your app icon files. Apple now backs up those files to iCloud for some silly reason. You may need to run an image optimizer over your icons files to reduce their size.

    I used an image optimizer, but my app was rejected due to the same issue. I decided to send a message to iTunes resolution center and explained that my app doesn't store or download any files on user's iCloud and finally it was approved. I have no idea why it was rejected twice and now it is approved.
