Apple has announced new prices for cloud storage iCloud

In keeping with the needs of users in cloud megabytes, Apple has updated the price on its remote disk storage iCloud Drive. Now for the same money you can get an order of magnitude more space.

iCloud Drive acts as a competitor to Dropbox and Google Drive. Last year at WWDC 2014, the company announced that the initial amount of disk space 5 GB free, 20 GB will have to pay $0.99 a month. In September of last year, the company said that monthly fee for 200 GB, 500 GB and 1TB of iCloud storage will be $3,99, at $9.99 and $19.99 accordingly.

A year later, the prices dropped to more humane values. Now for $0.99 per month, the user gets 50 GB of disk space to store photos, videos and documents. Paying for $2.99 you can get as much as 200 GB, and for $9.99 it is already possible to keep the cloud up to 1 TB. Free Apple also offers users just 5 GB.

Some users may be disappointed that Apple has generous 5 GB of free disk space in iCloud, believing that the number at present will not last long. Competitors offer for free three times — 15 GB instead of 5. At the same time, the updated prices are quite affordable and it is quite expensive for most users.

Note that iCloud Drive is not just a repository: the service has a deep integration with iOS and Mac, and also provides a Suite of web apps for Numbers, Pages and Keynote on the website iCloud.com. In addition, the repository is integrated with the Mail app and helps to send large attachments that are not supported by free email services.
