What's in Others in your iCloud storage

With iCloud, you can store the things that you love most and keep them updated across devices signed in with your Apple ID. You get 5GB of free iCloud storage, and can buy more or make space any time.

To see what you store in iCloud on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, tap Settings > [your name] > iCloud > Manage Storage. If you see a category called Others in your iCloud storage, here's what that means.

 

If you see Others on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, you might see an iCloud storage category called Others. This is a grouping of categories, since a smaller screen can't always fit every category name. For example, Mail and Messages in iCloud might combine into Others on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, but they'll still appear as their true category names on your Mac.*

Others can contain various categories — it depends on what you store in iCloud, and whether you're in a family that shares storage. Usually, your two largest storage categories show their true category names on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, and the rest of your categories group into Others.

* To check your iCloud storage on your Mac, go to  > System Preferences > iCloud > Manage.
