    I have a 128GB iPhone 6s Plus and have just upgraded my iCloud storage to 200GB a month. I also have an iPAd Pro and an iPad mini and a Mac. So I guess this is a good option for me?

    Just wondering what everyone else's storage is? Do you use iCloud or something else and if so, what? What's the best way to store all your stuff? Thanks.

    I also have 200 mb and use an iPhone 6S plus 128 GB along with an iPad Air 2 and MacBook. I've been on this plan for over a year and still have 154GB of available storage. I think it's worth the monthly fee.

    Yeah, it seems a decent step up from 50GB but then, I felt the same about that when I up'd to that. I hope this 200 will do.

    I recently upgraded to the 50GB plan. You can't beat it for $12/year. Plus I don't have to worry about the size of the iCloud back up's of my 6s, SE and iPad Mini.

    I just have the 5GB free. I have never needed more. I backup my phone to my MBP so my iCloud space is only used by my email.

    1TB on shared iCloud account between 3 iPads and 2 iPhones.

    Main culprit is ICPL with about a 650gb library.

    Too bad it completely sucks. I'm so close to dumping ICPL and going full Google photos. It's like all the things Apple promised except they actually work instead of this "beta" excuse we get from Apple.

    But have a lot of redundancy in photo storage - backup to Amazon Photos, Flickr, One Drive, and Google photos.

    I only use 3 GB between my iPhone, iPad, and Photo Library. I'm a pretty lightweight iCloud user I guess :D

    I've always found the 5Gb enough for my needs.

    Still have 3.8Gb remaining.

    I use Dropbox for my photos and some documents.

    Yeah, that's what happened to me. Been putting it off for a while, deleting pics etc but in the end I thought the cost of 200GB is worth it. 1TB is a bit steep though.

    Once you switch to Mac OS sierra you are going to end up wanting the 200 gb plan. I wonder if they will lower the prices for Mac OS sierra!

    As soon as you install it, it just assumes you want to put your Documents and Desktop folders in iCloud, once that is done, it will start storing all your other seldom used files on iCloud

    I was using around 48 to 54 on a 150 gig plan. When I installed Mac OS sierra, I now have 130 gb left

    I turned off the optimize feature. Or it would of used more, its just storing documents and desktop

    I would of allowed it to fill up my iCloud, but I have AT&T uverse and am only allowed 600 gb a month
