How to buy more icloud and what package to buy to suit your needs
Meta: You own an Apple device and default with any free iCloud account, Apple will give users 5GB to backup and sync data. If you use iPhone just to hear – call – message, this 5GB is more than enough, right? By default with any free iCloud account, Apple will give users 5GB to backup and sync data. However, the sincere advice is that you should buy more iCloud storage, because you will certainly use many other utilities with your device.
Sapo: ICloud will help you back up all data on Apple devices such as contacts, messages, photos / videos, notes, reminders, etc., and sync to all other devices in the same ecosystem. Therefore, if you do not know how to transfer data to a computer, you should buy more iCloud storage space if you have more than 5GB of data on the device.
How to buy more storage space on icloud
Some note for you when buying storage space on icloud
Apple has listed this as an upgrade to a higher capacity plan, so you get an additional 45GB from 5GB for free to 50GB (other similar packages).
To buy, you will need an international payment card, the simplest of which is VISA / Mastercard (Debit). You only need to bring ID card to the bank to be able to do it.
If you don’t have an international payment bank card, also you can buy it via Momo.
iCloud where to store huge data
The storage plan automatically renews monthly and you can upgrade / cancel at any time.
ICloud backups can only be synced down if your device is running an iOS version on a par with previous or higher devices.
Steps to buy additional iCloud storage
You go to Settings and find your Apple ID, then tap on iCloud => manage storage or iCloud storage => tap buy more storage or upgrade storage plan => choose the plan you want to buy.
Currently Apple offers 3 iCloud plans with different utilities for users to buy more including:
50GB: This plan costs VND 19,000 per month and is the most popular choice because of its low price and enough data capacity.
200GB: This plan costs 59,000 VND per month and can be shared with devices in the family setting.
2TB: This plan costs VND 199,000 per month and can be shared with devices in the family setting.
So how to choose the capacity plan that suits your needs?
The compelling reason to buy more iCloud storage is that it has a place to store backups of your iOS devices. If you have an ecosystem of iPads, your mother’s iPhone or your mother’s iPad, and her iPad’s all sorts of things, so the size of the backup is up to 60-80GB, sometimes even hundreds of GB. This is an unnecessary misuse because it is obvious that your computer has more room for other important things. Moving these backups to iCloud is logical.
You have an ecosystem of many different devices
Choosing the right package depends on the following factors:
How many iOS devices are you having? If only 1 iPhone and 1 iPad, 50GB would be enough because each backup of your phone only takes 5-10 GB, if the backup includes large number of photos.
Do you take a lot of photos or not? Photos are one of the things that take up the most space on iPhones and iPads, and depend on your level of capture / photo available. As I photographed everything, I saw everything I took, but I was lazy to delete, so it needed a large capacity
In addition to photos and device backup, do you use this other data or not? If not, then 200GB is available, while 200GB will always give it roomy, all materials up there
After successfully purchasing additional storage, make sure all sync needs to be enabled
Very simple, go to Settings> Right on the top of your name, select iCloud> turn on the things you want to sync up. Because we need to use Photos a lot, we need to make sure that the Photos is turned on, the iCloud Backup section also needs to be turned on so that the entire backup of the device is copied to the cloud when you turn on Wi-Fi.
