Your Apple ID includes some iCloud storage space that can be used for backups of your Apple devices and app data that you use on your iPhone. If you haven’t purchased a storage space increase, then you have 5 GB of storage space for free. But as you increase the amount that you use your iPhone, it’s very likely that this space will get used rather quickly.
If you are getting notifications that your iCloud storage is full, then you might want to see what is using it. Our tutorial below will show you how to navigate to your iCloud storage information on an iPhone so that you can view its usage and see what is taking up that space.
