    Are business allowed to use iCloud on a corporate level? Else such huge limits don't make any sense I guess.

    Do the contacts photos still do that awful "zoom in" thing that messes up your cropping?

    How charmingly useless.

    How about raising iCloud storage tiers? Flickr gives you a TERABYTE for free. A freaking terabyte. This is embarrassing Apple!
