Answer:
Answer:

iCloud upgrades are only for iCloud yes. If you purchase 50GB then you get those 50GB for your iCloud on a server in Apple's server farms somewhere, so you can store data there. Like device backups and other App data.


You cannot in any way alter the amount of physical storage on your iPhone. That's fixed and can never be changed.
