Apple already offers several tiers of storage when it comes to iCloud. However we reckon that there are plenty of users out there who might think that 1TB is just not big enough, and if you are one of those power users, you’re in luck because Apple has since announced a new 2TB tier.
This will give users 2TB of storage for iCloud and it will cost them $19.99 a month. This move by Apple is interesting as it has led to some speculation that it could indicate that Apple could indeed be planning a 256GB iPhone, in which users who wish to backup their device in its entirety will obviously appreciate having 2TB worth of storage. Either that or Apple plans on making their services more on par with the competition.
Apple’s offering of 2TB for $20 a month is also more or less in line with what the competition is offering. Google Drive is priced at $9.99 for 1TB, while Dropbox is also priced similarly. Microsoft on the other hand charges $6.99 a month but it does require an Office 365 subscription, but if you’re a Mac and iOS user, then obviously iCloud would make more sense as it is pretty much baked into both operating systems.
Will this latest offering convince power users to start adopting iCloud? We guess we’ll have to wait and see, but in the meantime any of you guys planning on signing up for it?
