If you are an iCloud power user or have a data-hungry family group, you may find the 2 TB storage plan insufficient for your needs. However with Apple One, there's a way to double that cap. Here's how.

You will need to combine the 2 TB storage plan for iCloud+, and the highest-tier Premier plan of the Apple One subscription service — for a total of $39.94.

Both plans can coexist simultaneously on one Apple ID account.

To begin the process, you will need to sign up for the Apple One Premier Plan first.

The Premier tier also includes subscriptions to all other Apple services offered, like Apple TV , Apple News , and Apple Arcade.
