You cant send or receive messages with your iCloud email address. Learn how to manage your storage by deleting backups, documents, photos, and email messages that you dont need anymore. If you cancel your plan or you dont renew it, youll automatically go back to 5GB of free storage.
Is paying for iCloud storage necessary?
iCloud Storage is the total amount of storage space available on iCloud. Its what you pay for. You can upgrade your storage to 50GB, 200GB, or 1TB (1 terabyte is 1000 gigabytes), and the monthly fees arent too bad – but its not necessary.
What happens to my photos if I run out of iCloud storage?
Email to your iCloud email address will be rejected, photos wont upload from your iPhone, and app data will fail to sync. Happily, Apple alerts you when youre running low on space, before things get bad. Its often easy to recover space thats not being used in a helpful way.
