There are two types of storage that come up from time to time with your iPhone. One is iCloud storage, and the other is device storage.
If you’re wondering what’s the difference between storage and iCloud storage, then you aren’t alone.
Typically you will use iCloud storage to back up things like photos, contacts, documents, and mail. It’s also where your iPhone backups are likely stored.
Your device storage, however, is used for things like apps, where the information needs to be stored locally to function properly.
You can also download other things to your iPhone, such as videos from streaming services like Netflix and Hulu.
Find out how to review downloaded videos on your iPhone so that you can easily remove ones you don’t need anymore.
How to View a Consolidated List of Downloaded Videos on an iPhone
