You don’t have to delete your photos to avoid that pesky “iCloud Storage is Full” pop-up message on your phone—for at least 31 days, that is. Apple is providing month-long, upgraded iCloud storage plans for free.
The announcement, first uncovered by AppleInsider, appears when a user tries to back up their files, but lacks the storage to do so. At default, users are entitled to 5GB of cloud storage.
The pop-up message reads, “You do not have enough space in iCloud to back up your iPhone. A 50GB plan gives you plenty of space to continue backing up your iPhone. Your first month is free and it’s just US$0.99 each month after.”
While the alert offers just the 50GB upgrade, trials for the 200GB and 2TB versions are also available.
After the first month, the 50GB plan will require a subscription fee of US$0.99, the 200GB option is priced at US$2.99, and the 2TB upgrade costs US$9.99.
The free month-long options are only applicable to non-paying users, though. If you have subscribed to any of the higher-tier iCloud plans in the past, you won’t be able to take up the trials.
To access these plans, simply head to ‘Settings’, select your Apple ID, tap on ‘iCloud’, go to ‘Manage Storage’, and select ‘Upgrade’.
