When you sign up for iCloud, you automatically get 5GB of storage. Your purchased music, movies, apps, books, TV shows, and shared albums don’t count against your free storage. But you may reach a point where you need more iCloud storage. At this stage, you’ve got two options:
• Buy more iCloud storage.
• Reduce the amount of iCloud storage that you use.
You can buy more iCloud storage from your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or PC. When you choose a new storage plan, your existing plan is cancelled and you’re charged the prorated cost of the larger plan. Your plan is upgraded right away, and the new monthly payment date is updated to reflect the purchase date for the new plan.
You’re billed every month for your storage plan unless you cancel by downgrading your plan. You get an email each month to remind you of your upcoming payment.
Here’s how you do it on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch:
Go to Settings
> [your name]
> iCloud Storage
> Tap Buy More Storage or Change Storage Plan
> Choose a plan, then tap Buy and enter your Apple ID password.
And on your Mac:
> Choose Apple () menu
> System Preferences, then click iCloud
> Click Manage in the lower-right corner
> Click Buy More Storage or Change Storage Plan
> Choose a plan, then click Next and enter your Apple ID password.
It may seem complicated, but you get prompted and your device will guide you along the way. Enjoy living up in the clouds, with endless amounts of storage.
