“How to buy more iPhone storage” is a popular search query on Google as iOS users scratch their heads over how to upgrade their iCloud. Perhaps they’ve been getting repetitive, irksome messages that their iCloud storage is full, or maybe they’ve realized that their current iCloud capacity simply won’t cut it. No matter what camp you’re in, you’ll need a larger storage plan to meet your needs.
Apple offers three tiers for iCloud storage: 50GB, 200GB and 2TB. They are monthly subscriptions. For 50GB, you’ll have to shell out $0.99 monthly. The 200GB and 2TB plans cost $2.99 and $10.99 per month, respectively.
