I am thinking about getting a 16gb ipad to save money. I current have a 32gb ipad and I use almost all of that space. Is there a way with icloud, or any other service, I can keep my pictures and videos available to me (but not on my ipad) so I can make the 16gb ipad work? What about the size of my apps? If I use icloud, can I somehow make it so those don't count against my ipad storage?

Hello! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed computer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. You can use an online / cloud storage app; it is for storing data only, i.e., pictures, videos, documents, etc.: DropBox is a good app.

Please let me know if you have any further question. Thank you

yes but what about icloud, I heard that if you use icloud apps, photos, and other things don't count against your storage

For iCloud, some count against your storage:

, and it's more like a backup app, so it backups what you have on the iPad (it's good to use for backups), and iCloud storage space is limited.

For extra more storage, use the apps I mentioned (i.e., Dropbox, Box, Google Drive) as they have more storage space/size, and it's easy to access data from any device from those apps.

You can have as many storage apps as you need.

Thank you
