Are you constantly running out of storage on your iPhone? If so, don’t worry!

In this article, we will guide you through the process of buying more storage on your iPhone. Follow these simple steps and never worry about storage limitations again.

Step 1: Check Your Current Storage

Before purchasing additional storage, it’s important to understand how much storage you currently have on your iPhone. To check your current storage, go to Settings > General > iPhone Storage. Here, you will find a breakdown of your available and used storage.

Step 2: Choose the Right Storage Plan

Now that you know how much storage you have, it’s time to decide on the right plan for your needs. Apple offers different storage plans ranging from 5GB to 2TB.

To choose a plan, go to Settings > iCloud > Manage Storage > Change Storage Plan. Here, you can select the plan that suits your needs and budget.


  • Assess Your Needs: Consider how much data (photos, videos, apps) you currently have and estimate how much more space you might need in the future.
  • Compare Pricing: Take a look at the pricing for each plan and determine which one offers the best value for money.
  • iCloud vs. iTunes: Remember that iCloud storage is primarily for backups and syncing data across devices, while iTunes offers additional space for media files like music and movies.

Step 3: Purchase Additional Storage

Once you’ve decided on the right plan, it’s time to make the purchase. Tap on the selected plan and enter your Apple ID password or use Touch ID/Face ID to confirm the purchase. The additional storage will be added to your account immediately.

Step 4: Manage Your Storage

Now that you have more storage, it’s important to manage it efficiently. Here are a few tips to keep your iPhone storage organized:


  • Delete Unnecessary Files: Regularly go through your files and delete any unnecessary photos, videos, or apps that are taking up space.
  • Optimize Storage: Enable the “Optimize iPhone Storage” option under Settings > Photos & Camera. This will automatically store full-resolution photos and videos in iCloud while keeping smaller versions on your device.
  • Offload Unused Apps: Enable the “Offload Unused Apps” option under Settings > General > iPhone Storage. This will remove unused apps but keep their documents and data intact, allowing you to reinstall them easily when needed.

Congratulations! You have successfully purchased additional storage for your iPhone and learned how to manage it effectively. With more storage at your disposal, you can now enjoy capturing memories, downloading apps, and storing all your favorite media without any worries about running out of space!

So go ahead and follow these steps today to buy more storage on your iPhone!
