The iPhone is a smart device that can be used for so many purposes. For instance, you can use it to check the weather, play games, surf the web, and a lot more. You can even make a phone call using the iPhone. However, one of the most important things that the iPhone offers is storage space.

The storage space on the iPhone comes in the form of built-in storage and external storage. The built-in storage is located inside the iPhone. The external storage can be found on iCloud.

In this article, we will be talking about how to buy storage on iPhone. We will also be covering the types of storage that you can buy on your iPhone.

How to Buy Storage on iPhone

No, you can’t buy more iPhone storage from a technical standpoint. You can, however, purchase additional iCloud storage to utilize in conjunction with your onboard storage, allowing you to free up some space on your iPhone.

Apple’s cloud storage solution is known as iCloud storage. You can save your data in the cloud and view it from any of your Apple devices if you have iCloud storage. Pictures taken on your phone, for example, can be accessed on the cloud from your Mac, and vice versa. While Apple does provide a small amount of free iCloud storage, most Apple customers will rapidly fill it up.

To view your iCloud stuff, you’ll need to be connected to the internet through a wireless signal.

You may purchase additional iCloud storage right from your phone, rather than having to determine what you need to keep and what you need to remove to free up space.

  • Go to the Settings menu.
  • Type your name on the screen’s top.
  • Select iCloud.
  • Select Manage Storage. iCloud Storage may be used instead on some devices, depending on the version of iOS you’re running.
  • Change Storage Plan or Buy More Storage (if you’ve never upgraded your iCloud storage plan) (if you have previously upgraded your storage but need to upgrade it again).
  • For the quantity of storage you require, select the upgrade option. You can upgrade or downgrade at any moment, but if you downgrade to less storage space than you currently have, you may lose some of your data.
  • After you’ve chosen a storage plan, either double-press the side button on your phone or provide credit card information when required to confirm your purchase. Once you’ve confirmed, your iCloud storage will be automatically charged each month until you cancel it.


In iCloud, you can choose from 50GB, 200GB, or 2TB of storage. Although 50GB of storage may be plenty for some users, if you take a lot of photos, download playlists to your phone, listen to a lot of podcasts, or download videos, the 200GB or 2TB storage plans may be more appropriate.
