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 to enter your Apple ID or to create one.
Click iCloud on the right, click Manage, then do any of the following:
Upgrade your storage: Click Add Storage or Change Storage Plan, then follow the onscreen instructions.
If you’re in a Family Sharing group and you use the same Apple ID to share family purchases, the upgrade is billed to the family organizer’s account. For 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: Select an app or feature on the left, then read the usage information on the right.
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 on the left, select a device on the right 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: Select Siri on the left, then click Disable and Delete.
