If you’re an iPhone user, you’ve probably seen the ‘Storage Almost Full’ notification pop up on your device’s screen quite a few times. It tells you to manage your Storage in settings, but usually, all the apps, photos, and videos on your device are things you’d instead not delete. So you’re stuck deleting just enough files or apps from your iPhone that the low storage notification stops appearing until a week or two later when the problem comes back.

This is an experience I think most iPhone users have had for quite some time, and it has only gotten worse in recent years. But it’s worth noting that Android users have this issue much less often, and there are a few reasons for that.

How to Manage iCloud Storage

You can also manage your iCloud storage by deleting files and documents you no longer need. When you delete something in iCloud, it’s deleted across all your synced devices.

Before you start, be sure to make a copy either on your computer or an external hard drive of anything you plan on deleting in iCloud but want to save.

Step 1 Intro

Go to In your iCloud Storage settings; you’ll see your apps using iCloud listed by the amount of space they take up. You can use this as a reference to help you decide what to remove, like duplicate pictures and videos in the Photos app, iCloud Drive documents you no longer need in the Files app, and attachments from conversations if you’ve turned on Messages in iCloud.

You’ll see photos, videos, documents, and other things you’ve shared or that have been shared with you in this conversation. You can tap See All to view and delete anything you no longer want to store in iCloud or keep on your devices.
