  1. 1
    To begin, let's give a single press to the 'Home' button
    .
    It is the round button at the center of the phone.

    Alternatively, we can press the 'Lock screen' or 'Power' button at the top
    .
    Either of the two options will take us to the 'Lock' screen.

    We may enter a PIN, a passcode, or use the 'Home' button, which also doubles as a fingerprint scanner
    .
    We can just put the finger or the thumb on the button to get the fingerprint scanned. This will take us to the 'Home' screen.

    On the 'Home' screen, we need to find the 'Settings' icon
    .
    The 'Settings' icon is a silver-grey icon with a series of gears inside of it with 'Settings' written underneath.

    .
    It is the first selection in the third section.

  10. 10
    We tap 'Usage'
    .
    Under 'Usage', we will see 'BATTERY', 'STORAGE', and 'iCloud'. We need the 'iCloud' section.

  11. 11
    We tap 'Manage Storage'
    .
    In this example, there are 2.5GB used for photos, about 300MB for the phone, and then not that much for 'TextEdit', 'Preview', and other options.

  12. 12
    If we scroll down, we can see the 'Mail' icon
    .
    The e-mail box is in the 'iCloud' itself, taking quite a bit of space. One of the downsides of 'iCloud' is that it uses all of our collected storage and applies it towards the actual space, rather than just the phone. In the example, there is the 'LAST BACKUP FAILED' message on top because 3.1GB of additional storage is required in order to back up the phone. This is owing to having quite a few videos, photos, and other things on that phone that generally should not be there.

    In order to upgrade our storage, we need to tap 'Change Storage Plan'
    .
    This will open up a window that allows us to upgrade the 'iCloud' storage. By default, it is a 5GB free plan.

    If we change our mind, and we would like to keep the free plan, then we just tap on 'Free'
    .
    For the purposes of this tutorial, and, additionally, for personal needs, the 20-gigabyte plan is selected.

    In order to do that, we tap '20GB'
    .
    In this video, the reason for this is that the phone is a 128GB model, which is the largest iPhone that Apple makes in terms of storage space for the time of making of this video. 200GB of space are not needed as it will be a waste of $3.99 per month, for which other purchases can be made on the iPhone.
