The word byte refers to the unit of digital information in computer storage and processing. A byte consists of 8 digits, each of which has 0 or 1. The size of the byte is the smallest and is used to express large quantities of data. Mostly, the size of the byte is equal to 8 smaller units called bits. The size of the byte is dependent on your system’s hardware.
Some programming languages also use bytes as a data type. For instance, languages like C and C++ use bytes as a data type and define it as the addressable unit for data storage. A byte is denoted by ‘B’.
Bytes are the unit measurement that affects our daily life. For example, it is used to express how many videos and photos you can store in your device when it comes to cleaning your phone’s storage.
