This question already has an answer here:

What are the benefits of buying iCloud storage ? What's the point? What is it for? I bought some and I unfortunately thought it would give me more space for apps or photos but it still says I don't have storage so I guess not I just like to know what's the point of it what is it used for and if there are any other ways to free up space without deleting stuff.

Apple's iCloud is just like any other cloud. It allows you store files, documents, pictures, etc. You get 5GB free iCloud storage with Apple devices.
