How to Share Your iCloud Storage


It’s possible that the free 5 GB of storage space that Apple gives its consumers won’t even be enough for one person, but it’s also possible that upgrading to 200 GB will be excessively large of a storage capacity. In the event that this is the case, you might want to think about renting out part of the space that you have for storage to other individuals. Utilizing the Family Sharing feature of iCloud will allow you to successfully complete this specific objective. A Family Sharing group has the option of sharing either the 200 GB or the 2 TB storage plan, and they are able to do so while still protecting the privacy of all of their individual files and photographs.

The following instructions will walk you through the process of setting up storage sharing with iCloud on any device that is capable of connecting with iCloud.
