    What?!
    How do you have only 2.1GB in use? I tip my hat for you sir. That’s a prestige.

    I have Dropbox, Google Drive, as well as an external USB hard drive. In addition, I don’t typically take a lot of photos with my iPhone and whenever I do, it tends to be of my son playing in his football or lacrosse games. After taking the pics, I’ll transfer them to my external drive and then delete them from iCloud. Been doing that for years.

    Understood. The whole idea of shooting photos with my phone is to have them always with me.
    Only yesterday I started deleting stuff from Photos. I deleted photos of my sister’s cat from when she stayed over for a few weeks the last 4 years while my sister was on vacation. 8GB of cats. One would think I was a crazy cat lady .

    I stopped backing up my device to iCloud and went back to the free 5GBs. I don’t have WiFi anymore so my backups are on my laptop

    iCloud Drive only

    I share 200GB of Apple cloud storage with my wife. Plus I have 50GB of Google Drive, some Dropbox, One Drive.
    All in all I’ve used maybe 130GB for various pics and files.

    Why are you asking this? It seems a bit odd.

    Why is it odd? It’s not like he’s asking for a screenshot of your username and passcode or even the files themselves. If you’re uncomfortable with sharing a cropped screenshot, you can simply type something similar to the following:

    I have the default 5 GB iCloud storage plan and I’ve only used half of it.

    I was talking about it with friends on a private group in iMessage and thought, it’s fun to know from fellow members on iMore, too.

    Just the basic 5GB only 3.2GB used between my iPad and iPhone backups. I already had like 19GB with Google from security checks etc. so I store my photos in Google Photos. Also I just recently picked up a Office 365 subscription due to work (Home Use Program discount) which apparently comes with 1TB of Onedrive storage so I guess if I fill Google up I'll switch to that instead since I'm already paying for it.

    iOS 12 took away my ability so stay within the free 5 gb.
