    I have 230GB right now with Onedrive and 55GB with Dropbox and wondering is it worth it to pay $1 a month for iCloud to have more space? I like iCloud photo library since its seamless and I don't have to open any apps but with me backing up my iPhone and iPad on my iCloud account I only have 100MB of space left. Dropbox/onedrive isn't a pain to use but it does require me to open the app and check on it every few mins to make sure it backs up all my photos

    Only you can answer that question because we do not know your storage needs.

    Yes. And yes.

    Use both.

    And OneDrive will back up your photos automatically.

    No. Not as far as I'm concerned. I back up to Box, Dropbox, and Google Photos, and I don't worry about pictures getting backed up with those solutions. I would not pay for Apple to take care of something that's not a problem.

    I try to avoid paying if I don't have to. I have 83 gb free with Box, Dropbox and OneDrive. It'll take me a long time to fill that. I've used maybe 4 gb. And there's Google+. OP, you have at least 285 gb of storage and it's not enough? SMH!

    Not a matter of free storage but more of is it worth paying $12 dollars a year on the seamless experience with Apple services. I find auto backup to not work a lot with one drive

    I just use iCloud. These days I'm all for integration and ease of use.

    It's $12 a year. Anyone can find that stashed in change in their car ashtray.

    Agree. I primarily use Dropbox for cloud storage but I also pay the $1 for Apple's service.
