ICloud storage is something we can share with up to 6 family members. It’s a system that allows all of us to have space in the cloud for different uses for a single payment. In this configuration, being able to know the space occupied by each member of the family is important on more than one occasion. Let’s see how to do it.
Shared space yes, but to a good extent
As family organizers, we can see how much space each family member takes up in iCloud. It’s not something we should be watching second by second away from it, but it’s something to keep in mind especially if there are children in the family. Because? Because sometimes a gigantic download ends up on the desktop
Given this scenario, it’s good to know how we can see the space quota used by each Apple ID. This is something we can do both from our Mac, our iPhone or our iPad. In the case of the last two, the steps are as follows:
- We open the app Settings on our iPhone or iPad.
- We touch our name at the top.
- We played on iCloud.
- We entered Manage storage space.
- We touch Family use.
Here we will see a breakdown of the different sizes occupied by each family member with whom we share space. On Mac, the steps to view this information are similar:
- In the Apple menu (), we choose System Preferences.
- We entered Apple ID
- We touch Manage at the bottom right of the window.
- We select Family in the left sidebar.
As before, we will see a list of the space occupied by each person. An information useful to help us discover certain irregularities it can happen or just decide that we want to rent more storage space.
It is clear that with the amount of files, photos, backups, etc., that we store, space, whether in the cloud or on a device, is an increasingly important asset. In this sense, being able to have a clear picture of who and who occupies that space is, without a doubt, relevant.
