i bought more icloud storage but its not showing up
iCloud is a great way to keep your photos, files, and documents safe and easy to access from any device. However, if you find that your iCloud storage is not increasing even after you have purchased more, there are a few things you can check. First, make sure that you are signed in to the correct iCloud account on the device where you made the purchase. Then, check to see if there are any pending purchases that have not yet been processed. Finally, try restarting your device and checking again. If you still don’t see the increase in storage, contact Apple Support for further assistance.
Delete old photos and videos that you no longer need
One way to free up some iCloud storage is to delete old photos and videos that you no longer need. To do this, open the Photos app and tap on the Albums tab. Next, tap on Recently Deleted and select the photos or videos that you want to delete. Finally, tap on Delete and confirm that you want to delete the selected items.
In order to keep your photos and videos safe, we recommend that you export them to your computer or another cloud storage service before deleting them from iCloud. That way, you will still have access to them even if something happens to your iCloud account.
Turn off Photo Stream on devices that you don’t use frequently
Another way to save on iCloud storage is to turn off Photo Stream on devices that you don’t use frequently. Photo Stream is a feature that automatically syncs your photos across all of your devices. While this can be convenient, it can also take up a lot of storage space if you have a lot of devices connected to your iCloud account. To turn off Photo Stream on a device, go to Settings > iCloud > Photos and toggle the switch next to Photo Stream to the off position.
Store music and movies in iCloud instead of on your device
If you find that you are constantly running out of storage on your device, it may be because you have a lot of music and movies stored on it. Instead of keeping these files on your device, you can store them in iCloud and stream them when you want to listen or watch them. To do this, go to Settings > iCloud >Storage > Manage Storage and select the device that you want to manage. Next, tap on Music or Movies and turn off the switch next to Show All Music or Show All Movies.
Use iCloud to store documents and files instead of your computer
iCloud is a great way to store documents and files so you can access them from anywhere. If you find that you are constantly running out of storage on your computer, try storing your documents and files in iCloud instead. To do this, go to Settings > iCloud >Storage > Manage Storage and select the device that you want to manage. Next, tap on Documents & Data and turn off the switch next to Store in iCloud.
Back up your device to iCloud regularly
Another way to make sure you are getting the most out of your iCloud storage is to back up your device to iCloud regularly. This way, if you ever lose your device or it gets damaged, you will be able to restore it from your iCloud backup.
