What if a fam­ily mem­ber needs more space?

Mac Format - - FEATURE -

It doesn’t take many iOS de­vices record­ing video and mak­ing back­ups to over­whelm a 200GB plan. Ev­ery­body in your fam­ily group will be no­ti­fied if you’re run­ning low on space, and the fam­ily or­gan­iser can up­grade to a 2TB plan. That’s worth do­ing, be­cause once you hit the limit of your stor­age then photos no longer up­load to iCloud Photo Li­brary, files no longer sync to iCloud Drive, and iOS de­vices will no longer back up to iCloud un­til you ei­ther free up space or add more.

Fam­ily mem­bers us­ing a free 5GB plan are added to the fam­ily plan au­to­mat­i­cally. Those who pay can de­cide to stick with it or use the fam­ily’s quota, but can’t have both. If they de­cide to use your space they’ll get a re­fund for the un­used por­tion of their own data plan.
