    I have a similar experience about the iCloud storage plan with Apple One.

    I have a 2TB family iCloud plan but uses only 200+GB in total. So when Apple One released I thought great, I can subscribed to the Apple One family plan (which comes with 200GB iCloud storage) and need only extra 200GB storage (for a total of 400GB). And this should work, right?

    But this is not how it work. once I subscribed to Apple One, downgrade to 200GB iCloud storage, I received email from Apple that it is not enough.

    I decided to wait it out and see what happened. Yes, my iCloud account no longer sync. Called Apple, the answer is: the iCloud storage needs to be MORE than the one Apple One provided, and Apple will use the larger one for syncing. So since Apple One comes with 200GB storage, I need the next plan, which is 2TB.

    I ends up cancelling my Apple One service, upgrade back to 2TB, and luckily, no data was lost.
