If, for some reason, you want to downgrade your current iCloud plan, then you can do so by following the above steps again. The downgrade will happen once the billing month is complete, which will in turn give you ample time to move your stuff offline if you want to.

We highly recommend that you invest in some iCloud storage space especially if you tend to backup your photos and videos a lot. iCloud is the best way there is when it comes to keeping your personal data safe.
