About storage on your device and in iCloud
Know the difference between your device and iCloud storage, ways to manage your space and where to buy more if it ends.
When you buy your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, it comes with an adjustable storage capacity that varies from 16 to 256 GB for iPhone, 16 to 512 GB for iPad and 8 to 128 GB for iPod touch.
The music you buy, the applications you download, the photos you take and all the other content that you like on your device use their storage.
And, depending on the size of your capacity and content, your device can fill and run out of storage. When your device is full, it can not increase its storage. But you can free space.
