If you set up an iCloud account and use the Apple Cloud storage, you will receive 5 GB of storage free of charge. This can be used for photos, videos, documents, contacts, messages and more. However, if this memory is no longer sufficient, there are other offers. The different storage plans of the Apple iCloud cost different amounts; depending on whether you want to use 50 GB, 200 GB or 2 TB of storage. I have summarized all prices and further information for you in the following.

Apple iCloud: 5 GB of storage is free
Users who use their iCloud account as a regular service for iPhone, iPad, Mac and Co. do not have to pay a single euro. However, if you want to swap out more data from the devices or save it as a backup in the iCloud, you can increase it to 50 GB, 200 GB or even 2 TB. This allows all kinds of data, photo and larger video collections accumulated over years to be moved. However, if you only need 5 GB to move this or that file from the iPhone to the Mac or vice versa or to be able to view documents anywhere, you do not have to pay anything else. In addition, services such as Pages, Numbers, Keynote and the like for free.

Dropbox, Google Drive and Co. are not alternatives
There is now cloud storage that offers more free storage space or even lower prices for the volumes mentioned above. But these do not offer the same advantages as the Apple iCloud for users of iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Mac. Although some apps can also exchange their data via Dropbox, Google Drive and Co., even beyond iOS and macOS, the systems themselves work best with the Apple Cloud. For example, the synchronization of iTunes data, backups, contacts, e-mails and the like works best with Apple devices or, with regard to some data, exclusively via iCloud. This also applies to saved passwords, Apple Pay or the location services of Mac and iPhone.
