How to automatically back up your photos using iCloud on iPhone

There are a ton of ways to back up your photos on iPhone. You can transfer them to your computer, external drive or use a third-party service. However, the most seamless option is iCloud as it falls within Apple’s ecosystem. iCloud is Apple’s cloud syncing service that lets you backup data like photos, messages, and apps to their cloud storage. After the data has been uploaded, you can access it on your Apple device or through the iCloud website.

Apple offers 5GB of free iCloud storage to all its users. However, if you have more data to backup, you can always upgrade to a paid plan. You can get 50 GB of storage for $0.99/month, 200 GB of storage for $2.99/month, or 2 TB of storage for $9.99/month. There is also an option to share the storage space with your family members if you pay for the 200GB plan or higher. Here’s how to automatically back up your photos using iCloud on iPhone in a few simple steps.
