Before buying a new iPhone or iPad, there is one thing for sure that you always check – storage size. You have the option to choose how much storage you want if it’s either 32GB or 256GB.
Sad to say that even if you buy the iPhone with the largest storage capacity, you somewhat still run out of storage. If you’re a user that shoots tons of pictures and videos, you will indeed run out of storage unless you delete some files inside your phone.
To solve these storage problems, you can either save your files in your MacBook or use Apple’s cloud platform – iCloud. Using iCloud is perhaps the most convenient storage you can use, but the free 5GB is undoubtedly unacceptable.
Suppose you rely heavily on storage but at the same time want convenience and security over your files. In that case, iCloud is for sure your best bet. If you are currently subscribed to iCloud’s free plan, we will show you how to upgrade your plan.
But what if you already enrolled in a paid iCloud plan? Can you still downgrade it? Yes, of course, and we are going to show you the steps here as well.
How to Upgrade my Free iCloud Plan?
Upgrading your iCloud plan is so easy, and you can do the upgrade process using your iPhone or Ipad.
1. Go to your iPhone or iPad’s Settings.
2. Tap your Apple ID profile.
3. Tap “iCloud”.
4. Tap “Manage Storage”.
5. Tap “Change Storage Plan”.
6. Now, once you reach this section, it will show your iCloud storage plan details. Choose the upgrade option that best suits your needs.
7. Tap “Buy”.
8. Tap “Subscribe”.
9. Type in your Apple ID password. In some cases, you may be asked to confirm your subscription by double-clicking your iPhone’s side button.
How to Downgrade My Current iCloud Plan?
If you think you don’t need additional storage space for your iCloud or you simply changed your mind, you can always downgrade it. In addition, Apple offers a “Cancel Anytime” policy if you don’t like the service. Just make sure to cancel your subscription at least 24 hours before the next billing starts.
To downgrade your current iCloud plan, simply tap the “Downgrade Options” and select the lower plan you want to subscribe to. You will be asked again for confirmation through Face ID or by logging in your Apple ID account.
That’s it! If you think the 5GB is a little short for you, then you can upgrade your iCloud storage plan at any time. If you don’t want to use this cloud service and pay, the best option is to save your files locally on your computer or delete some files inside your iCloud.
