Manage iCloud storage on Mac
When you sign in with your Apple ID and turn on iCloud, you automatically get 5 GB of free storage. You can use your iCloud storage for photos, files, backups, and more. You can increase your storage by upgrading to iCloud+. See What is iCloud+?
You can also remove items stored in iCloud to make more space available. See the Apple Support article Free up storage space on your Mac.
View and manage iCloud storage
On your Mac, choose Apple menu > System Settings, then click [your name] at the top of the sidebar.
If you don’t see your name, click “Sign in with your Apple ID,” enter your Apple ID (or a Reachable At email address or phone number that you added in Apple ID settings), then enter your password. If you don’t have an Apple ID, you can create one.
Click iCloud on the right, click Manage, then do any of the following:
Upgrade your storage: Click Change Storage Plan or Add Storage, then follow the onscreen instructions.
Share iCloud+ with your Family: If you subscribe to iCloud+, click Share with Family, then follow the onscreen instructions.
If Share with Family isn’t shown, you can share iCloud+ with your family in Family Sharing settings.
Note: If you’re in a Family Sharing group and you use the same Apple ID to share family purchases, the storage upgrade is billed to the family organizer’s account. For more information about sharing iCloud storage with family members, see the Apple Support article Share iCloud+ with your family.
See how an app or feature is using storage: Click an app or feature in the list.
You can permanently remove all documents and data for an app. You can save copies of documents before removing them from iCloud.
Remove an iOS or iPadOS device backup: Click Backups in the list, select a device whose backup you don’t need, then click Remove (below the list of backups).
WARNING: If you delete the iCloud backup for your current iOS or iPadOS device, iCloud stops automatically backing up the device.
Turn off Siri and remove Siri-related data: Click Siri in the list, then click Disable and Delete.
iCloud+ may not be available in all countries or regions, and iCloud+ features may vary by area. See the macOS Feature Availability webpage.
