Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller today announced that iCloud storage plans have been reduced in price. 5GB of iCloud storage remains free, while paid upgrades include 50GB for 99 cents per month, 200GB for $2.99 per month and 1TB for $9.99 per month. Prices in other countries may vary based on currency exchange rates.
Apple's old iCloud storage plan pricing tiers were as follows:
- 5GB: Free
- 20GB: $0.99/month
- 200GB: $3.99/month
- 500GB: $9.99/month
- 1TB: $19.99/month
Apple's new iCloud storage plans are priced more competitively against other cloud storage services such as Google Drive, which also offers 1TB of storage for $9.99 per month. Microsoft OneDrive remains cheaper, however, offering 1TB of storage and an Office 365 subscription for $6.99 per month.

Even though 99 cents is nothing, I still balk at upgrading my memory because I feel it's an insult, I haven't backup up my iPhone in months lol. With competitors offering MUCH more free storage, and with Apple's immense profit margins on hardware I just find it hard to believe (well not really) that they want to chisel another 99cents/month out of me. For gods sake take care of your loyal consumers and give them 20gb like everyone else does.
