    If you have a 64GB iPhone and 50GB of music on Spotify then iCloud is not going to help you one bit.
    I may have missed something but where has Spotify been mentioned and can you explain what you mean (I think most people realise that you canít backup Spotify songs to ICloud, unlike Apple Music tracks)?

    Just an example of local storage. Nothing special re Spotify.

    Equally if you have 5,000 apps taking up 50GB or 100GB iCloud isn't going to do anything to help you. The phone will encourage app offloading to give you more space but ultimately iCloud won't help you.

    iCloud won't give anyone more local storage, it will just put into the cloud what is possible to live in the cloud -- photos, videos, backups, contacts etc.

    The OS adds storage space?

    Yeah, every OS does. Storage is always advertised that way.

    I'm quite particular when and where I post. Thanks for the interest/concern though. Very encouraging.

    Sorry if this was tongue in cheek but in the absence of emoji I've decided it could be genuine.
    No. Phone manufacturers state the storage when empty (64 GB min for an iPhone I believe) and the OS takes some of that space hence lower availability

    Brilliant biz model from Apple, sell expensive devices and then lock in with a storage subscription and future devices, and promote family packages to get the next generation tied in

    I got wound up by the payment model of icloud etc so just connect it with a cable to my laptop every month, open the "image capture" app that's bundled with the apple software and copy all the pics and videos across to a hard drive, then clear my phone. As others' have said, I resent paying them to store a bunch of screenshots and pics of payment parking numbers!

    Would you recommend the M2101K7BNY over an iPhone?

    Ha! Good one. It's actually a Redmi Note 10s. £139 from Amazon last November.

    Replaced an iPhone XR.

    An upgrade to an iPhone 12 or 13 was getting to £1,000, which I thought was too much.

    In all honesty the Note 10s is better or equal to the XR in everyway, except

    1. the camera, and in hindsight I should have ponied up the extra £70 and got the Note10 pro with better screen and camera.

    And 2. No Apple watch compatibility.


    But at least 2 got me back in to mechanical watches and this forum!

    What do others do in this situation - buy a phone with more capacity or pay to store stuff on icloud ?

    Thanks in advance

    IIRC as an Apple user youíll get some Cloud storage foc (sorry canít remember how much), and you can save space on the phone by choosing the menu option to store full-size photos in the Cloud and low res versions on your handset.
