At last week's "Hey Siri" media event, Apple announced new iCloud pricing tiers, expanding the amount of storage provided to users. The company has now updated its iCloud support document to outline the new pricing information in all countries where iCloud storage is available.

While Apple previously offered iCloud storage in 5GB, 20GB, 200GB, 500GB and 1TB tiers, the new tiers include only 50GB, 200GB, or 1TB of storage at lower prices. With the old pricing, 20GB of storage in the U.S. cost $0.99, but now users will get 50GB for the same price. 200GB was formerly priced at $3.99 and is now $2.99, and 1TB of storage, previously priced at $19.99, is now $9.99.

icloudpricing
Pricing in 24 countries in the Middle East, Asia, and Europe are included in the support document. Countries where local currency isn't supported will have storage upgrades billed in dollars, and Eurozone countries will be charged in Euros. For countries with Value Added Tax, VAT is included in the iCloud pricing.

Customers who purchased monthly plans before September 16, 2015, will have their accounts upgraded automatically, presumably when iOS 9 launches tomorrow. Customers on an annual plan will continue to renew annually at that rate.

I moved all my photos and movies over to Google Photos, which is unlimited and free forever. I'm not going to pay Apple monthly for the same thing.
Now ask yourself why it's free and what you're giving up by not paying for the service.

I should get as much cloud storage as my total number of registered Apple devices, including my MacBook, for free, so that everything is always completely backed up. THAT is the seamless Apple experience I expect. If they need to charge more up front per device, fine, but I will never subscribe to subscription model BS for anything, period.

Not exactly the same. Google Photos store up to 16MP for free, but the image quality is compressed. On iCloud you can store RAW photos. I know most people don't see the difference and don't care about RAW, but for some people this is important.

If Google can offer a lot more for much less, why can't Apple too?? They have money and resources. Come on.

I wish Apple would offer an iCloud server as part of the OS X Server package. I would pay for that, I would pay a lot for that.

I like the idea of iCloud, connecting my iPhone to a cloud and having all the photos and documents synched. But I don't want to trust Apple or anyone else to host it for me. I want to host it myself.

I'm sure other corporations would also love that control. Implementing their own iCloud for syncing documents across users, while maintaining complete control of privacy and security.

OS X server lets you host your own calendar server, mail server, file server, update server, web server, etc. iCloud server would use be a nice addition.

I don't mind 5 GB free, but it should be 5 GB per device. Thus as I own a Macbook, iPhone and iPad I should get 15 GB free. Maybe even only 5 GB per iOS device (let's face it, 5 GB for a laptop isn't going to backup mutch!) As it stands I'll probably go for 50 GB just to get iPhoto library syncd across my devices.
