every day that passes, many users are aware that need more and more space in iCloud.com, however, there are times that we will not always be able to maintain a service like this, so today we ask, what happens when an iCloud subscription expires? we lose our data if our space required is larger than the free space? Can we do something? you explain everything then.
iCloud and its free storage is often small
applications, photos, videos, documents, etc . As I said earlier, increasingly needed more space in the clouds, so many users choose to pay for their storage programs already that the 5 free GB offering Apple become smaller with the passage of time.
for many users the free 5 GB of iCloud do not serve or to make backup copies of our iPhone, iPad or other products of Cupertino. That is why many users decide to proceed to checkout and pay a monthly fee to increase the limit of our accounts. But not always increases, there are times that is the opposite and we want to pay less or simply return it to the free iCloud capacity, what happens in these cases?
be careful because there is no a single consequence
before explain you the consequences of reducing your storage on the other that does not cover your space from iCloud, prefer to give you a warning. Optimize to the maximum space because so you can save yourself some money and keep only the most important.
This means that whenever you can (whenever you on space), I recommend that you reduce the contracted plan (saving money always is good). However, if you have more space you want to hire, you’ll have a few important problems that will come to appear one after the other.
in the first place, both iOS and macOS will be warning us repeatedly that we need to increase our own storage in iCloud or simply deleting data that has free space on it.
when you’ve gone through the evil drink in photographs, comes the turn of security and email copies. In this case, iCloud will cease to backup your device iOS and all the accounts of mail with the completion @icloud.com or @me.com you have will not work immediately.
the last step has as protagonist to iCloud Drive and applications. Apple will not allow you to sync your devices with iCloud Drive and all those apps that synchronize data with your iCloud account will not work.
some tips to take care of the free space in the cloud
for all the above, it is essential to reduce space only when we’re sixty by one hundred insurance that our occupying space is less than the contracted space. In other words, must always be left over space free to avoid these headaches that can cause us Apple.
If you can’t afford to pay for more space, I recommend you to follow a series of guidelines with your Apple devices. Removes older that remain stored in the cloud, backups Delete pictures and videos that are not important within iCloud Drive and to restrict the backup copies of third-party applications like WhatsApp.
remember that you can also store backups in iTunes . In this way you can save space in iCloud unless you lose the information on your device. Use the memory of the iPhone, iPad, iPod or Mac instead of upload photos or videos to the cloud of Apple, or use third-party applications as Dropbox, Mega, Google Drive, allowing a little more extensive free storage.
