By default, Apple offers 5GB of free iCloud space to every iPhone and iPad owner. However, you will run up against your storage limit sooner than you expect, mainly due to a large number of documents, emails, and photos you put in the iCloud.
Apple is fully aware of that and the company is now offering storage plans with different pricing tiers, ranging between $0.99 and $9.99. The Cupertino Company has recently added more storage to its $9.99 storage plan, offering users more space to store photos, videos, and documents.
In iOS 11, iCloud storage subscribers can share their storage plan with other family members. This is a great addition to iOS, as it saves you a lot of money on monthly charges.
