Apple iCloud Update: Enhanced Storage Plans, Pricing

Apple iCloud Update: Enhanced Storage Plans

Apple recently updated its iCloud storage plans, introducing a new pricing model that begins with the usual free 5 GB of storage. However, the options expand significantly from there, with increased storage capacities available at various price points.

Under the new structure, 20GB of storage is available for just $0.99 per month.

For those needing more space, 200GB can be had for $3.99, 500GB for $9.99, and a substantial 1 TB for $19.99 monthly. This revised pricing is more competitive than previous rates and offers a range of options that could appeal to many users, though the cost for the largest plan remains somewhat steep compared to some competitors.

For instance, Dropbox offers its 1 TB Pro plan for $9.99 per month or $99.99 annually, and Google’s pricing for the same amount of Google Drive storage is approximately $10 monthly.

Despite these comparisons, Apple’s updated pricing marks a significant improvement. It might be beneficial for Apple to consider increasing the free storage tier to 20GB, potentially encouraging more users of iPhones and iPads to utilize iCloud’s services.
