A group of people probably thought it was junk mail when this email recently popped-up in their inbox:
We recently updated our iCloud storage plans and have increased your storage from 20GB to 50GB – at no additional cost. We increased iCloud storage so you can get even more out of services like iCloud Photo Library and iCloud Drive. Your storage plan will automatically renew at 50GB on your current renewal date and your credit card on file will be charged $0.99 each month until you change or cancel your plan.
The iCloud Team
COME ON! Really? Apple gave people something for FREE? NO WAY!
Come to find out, Apple has increased the capacity of its paid iCloud storage plans at no additional cost.
If you’re like us, your cloud fills up with photos and videos very quickly.
Here’s the breakdown:
50GB of cloud storage: $0.99/month, 200GB of cloud storage: $2.99/month, 1TB of cloud storage: $9.99/month.
Unfortunately, the free storage capacity is still only at 5GB.
Part of the reason this is happening: critics are bagging on fact that the new “entry level” iPhone 6S is still only a measly 16GB. With this newly expanded cloud storage plan, it might alleviate some of the pain you’ll feel taking those 4K videos.
