Apple's New iCloud Pricing Announced: 20GB for $0.99, 200GB for $3.99 and 1TB for $19.99

Following today's media event that saw Apple unveil both the Apple Watch and two new versions of the iPhone 6, the company has updated its website to provide additional information on its iCloud pricing, ahead of the launch of both iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite.

Apple has a new range of iCloud Storage Plans available with prices that are highly competitive with other cloud storage companies. Customers will continue to get 5GB of storage for free, with 20GB available for $0.99 per month.

200GB of storage costs $3.99 per month, and 500GB is $9.99 per month. Apple's top tier storage, 1TB, costs just $19.99 per month, slightly more than Dropbox's new $9.99/month price for 1TB storage.

The launch of iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite will see the official debut of iCloud Drive, Apple's new cloud storage initiative. With iCloud Drive, users can store any type of document, including presentations, spreadsheets, PDFs, images, and more, and then access them from any iOS device, Mac, or PC.

5GB for free is pathetic for 2014. Google and Microsoft give 15GB for free.

So double price is only "slightly more"? :confused:

Come on Macrumors. The cost for 1TB is double what Dropbox charges, not "slightly more."

5GB definitely isn't enough for all of my nude pics.

If it's gonna stay at 5GB, it should be 5GB per device.

But I agree.

I don't have an issue with the base storage being 5GB.

What bothers me, however, is that someone who finds an iPhone 4 on the ground and sets up iCloud on it gets 5GB while someone who buys a Mac Pro, a 15" retina MacBook Pro and an iPad Air also gets 5GB in total (if they use the same Apple ID).

They should reward loyal users and discourage using multiple IDs.

$240/year is not slightly more than $120/year.
