Downgrade or cancel your iCloud+ plan

If you have more space in iCloud than you need, you can downgrade or cancel your iCloud+ plan on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or PC.

What happens when you downgrade or cancel iCloud+

  • If your iCloud storage exceeds your new storage plan capacity, iCloud won't sync or update your information. iCloud updates again when you increase your storage capacity or delete information to make more space. 
  • If you downgrade to the free iCloud plan, your storage will be reduced to 5GB and you will no longer have access to iCloud+ features like Hide My Email, Private Relay, and HomeKit Secure Video support.*
  • When you downgrade or cancel your plan, the storage change takes effect after your current subscription billing period ends.** 
  • To make sure you don't lose any information, learn how to copy what's in iCloud

* Not all features are available in all countries or regions. 

** Partial refunds are available where required by law. If you recently changed your iCloud storage plan, contact Apple within 14 days for a refund. Learn how to request a refund.

If you subscribe to Apple One

Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, iCloud+, and more are combined into one simple plan with Apple One. If you already have an iCloud+ plan, you don't need to cancel it when you sign up for Apple One. Learn what happens to your iCloud+ plan when you subscribe

If you pay for both Apple One and an iCloud+ plan, you can downgrade or cancel the iCloud+ plan and just use the iCloud+ plan included in Apple One.

If you downgrade or cancel the iCloud+ plan included in Apple One, you also cancel your Apple One subscription. Learn how to see or cancel your subscriptions


If you can't select Done

If you can't click Done, make sure you are signed in with the same Apple ID as your iCloud storage plan. You can also try following these steps on a different device. If you still need help, contact Apple Support.
