YOUR iPhone has a really cheap hack that could save you from pain down the line.
This is especially useful when you have a lot of precious photos that you don’t want to lose.
All you have to do is update your iCloud storage.
This is Apple’s cloud backup system: a place to keep copies of your media.
So if something bad happens to your iPhone, you have a security blanket.
You get 5GB of storage for free from Apple, but that’s not very much.
If you pay 79p a month you can upgrade to 50GB.
That means if you have an iPhone with 64GB of storage (and many are), you can almost certainly back up all of your photos.
Importantly, this is the first iCloud tier that lets you share your storage space with others in your family.
You can do this through Apple’s Family Sharing feature.
Of course, you could spend even more on iCloud if you’re a real power user.
There’s a £2.49 option that gets you a whopping 200GB option.
And for the most dedicated iPhone owners, there’s a £6.99 per month option that gives you a staggering 2TB of data.
Even the most avid gadget geeks will have trouble consuming all that permission.
iCloud storage is important because it allows you to back up your digital possessions.
“You can use this storage space for your iCloud backups, to keep your photos and videos stored in iCloud Photos, to keep your documents in iCloud Drive up to date, and more,” Apple explains.
“You can always check how much iCloud storage you’re using in Settings on your device or on iCloud.com.
“If you’re running low, you can always create more storage or upgrade to iCloud+.”
How to update iCloud storage on iPhone
To find your iCloud storage settings, open your iPhone and go to Settings.
Then tap your name at the top to enter the Apple ID settings.
Now tap on the iCloud icon and then on Manage Storage.
Once you have enough storage space, make sure iCloud Backup is turned on in your iCloud settings.
So you can rest assured that your photos are safe – even if something bad happens to your iPhone.
Eventually, some of your iPhone photos will be priceless.
You can view your remaining iCloud storage at any time in these settings.
And you can upgrade or downgrade your plan at any time.
