How to back up photos from an iPhone with iCloud storage

If you’re someone who loves taking photos and owns an iPhone, it’s great to know that your device offers a considerable amount of storage space for your images regardless of which model you have.

Whether you’ve opted for a more modest 64 GB of storage or a more lavish 512 GB, there’s likely plenty of space to hang onto your snapshots on the device itself. But what happens if something goes wrong with your phone?

There are several options for backing up your iPhone photos, but the best one probably remains Apple’s iCloud storage.

Your Apple ID automatically comes with 5 GB of storage space, but you can purchase additional storage up to 2TB for a monthly fee. It’s quick and easy to use iCloud to back up your photos and it can even be automated. Here’s how to do it.
