Mntrends brings to you tutorial on how you can set up iCloud Storage sharing on iPhone and other iOS devices.

To get started, your Apple iOS device (iPhone, iPad or, yes, even iPod Touch) needs to be running iOS 11 or better. This is only necessary for the primary device that’s sharing its iCloud account.
