What Happens If I Downgrade iCloud Storage: Will I Lose Everything

I'm currently using the 200 GB of iCloud storage plan, but I plan to downgrade soon due to some finacial problems. I want to know: will I lose all the files that are over free 5 GB after downgrading iCloud storage?

If you downgrade your iCloud storage plan, here is what may happen to you:

  • You will lose the additional storage space that was included in your previous plan.
  • Any files, photos, videos, or other data that exceed the free 5GB limit may no longer be backed up or accessible in iCloud.
  • iCloud services that require additional storage space, such as iCloud Drive, iCloud Photo Library, and iCloud Backup, may be disabled or limited.

Will you lose photos or everything if you downgrade your iCloud storage? No. Apple typically offers a grace period during which you can still access your data and make any necessary adjustments before the storage downgrade takes effect. It is recommended to back up your photos to a local device before downgrading your iCloud storage plan to ensure that you do not lose any important data.

Here we recommend EaseUS MobiMover, which offers a trial version, enabling you to transfer data from iPhone or backup your iPhone to computer for free.

It is important to ensure that you have enough storage space to accommodate your data needs or consider alternative backup options to ensure that your data is safe and accessible.
