There's a £2.49 option that gets you a whopping 200GB option.

Even the most ardent gadget geeks will struggle to use up all of that allowance.

Having iCloud storage is important because it allows you to back up your digital belongings.

"You can use that space for your iCloud backups, to keep your photos and videos stored in iCloud Photos, to keep your documents up to date in iCloud Drive and more," Apple explains.

"You can always check how much iCloud storage you're using in Settings on your device or on iCloud.com.

"If you're running low, you can make more space or upgrade to iCloud+ any time."

Then tap your name at the top to enter Apple ID settings.
