iCloud AltAs part of its new suite of educational apps and experiences for children, Apple today announced that it is increasing the amount of free iCloud storage available to kids and teachers.

Instead of providing each student and teacher with the standard 5GB of free storage, Apple is now offering 200GB of storage at no additional cost.

Every student that has an Apple ID managed by a school will have access to 200GB of storage space for storing assignments, resources, and other documents in the cloud. The new storage space goes hand-in-hand with ClassKit and the Classwork app, which stores assignments in the cloud so students and teachers can access them anywhere.

This is not a program that's available to any student -- it is limited to students who have Apple IDs that were provided by their school.

Regular students and standard users of Apple devices will continue to be limited to 5GB of free storage space.

200GB for free is very nice! I wonder when they are going to offer higher free iCloud storage to regular users; 5GB is kinda silly.

You can bet the new iPad storage was left out of the specs for a reason. Together with this online storage I can guess...

What's it going to be? 8gb?
This FUD-filled post didn’t age well and it’s only been ten minutes. Storage options are 32GB and 128GB.

And if you’re not a student or teacher, that’s your fault and here’s 5 lousy gigs- but thanks for buying the 256gb device!
