Sharing storage on iCloud with other family members

The more images and videos we capture and import, the greater the chances of acquiring a monthly subscription plan that increases the storage capacity in the cloud. In the case of Apple devices, one of the solutions is iCloud – and with the advantage of paying an amount that can be divided between more than one person.

With Family Sharing, you can save a modest to significant amount each year by grouping the storage into two or more people. There are four plans offered by the Apple service: 5 GB free available to all iCloud users; 50 GB for R $ 3.50; 200 GB for R $ 10.90; and 2 TB for R $ 34.90. All of these prices are the ones practiced here in Brazil.

Family Sharing allows you to group 200 GB and 2 TB plans between six members who can be in a family group. Although it is grouped, access remains completely restricted to each member: you cannot see the files of other members of the family. So, how to take advantage of this possibility, without overpaying for it?

To enable Family Sharing, simply open Settings> Account Name> Configure Family Sharing> Introducing iOS and iPadOS. In macOS 10.14 Mojave or earlier, open the iCloud preferences panel and click Set up family. In macOS 10.15 Catalina, open the panel Family Sharing and follow the setup instructions.
