    hi guys,
    Is there any way to store more than the ICloud Storage Limit on an Ipad?
    for instance I want to transfer a bunch of files onto my Ipad using IFile, but it stops at 5 GB.

    Thanks for the replies
    but what I meant was is there a work around or app to this?

    Your iCloud storage is "Online Storage", it is not that same as your iPads storage.

    For example if you have iCloud and iTunes Match, your music can be played directly from your iCloud storage without taking up any space on your iPad. It's great for freeing up space on the iPad, however things in iCloud are only accessible while your iPad is connected to the internet.
