Just like with Google Drive and Dropbox, Apple’s iCloud storage service offers its users a small amount of free storage if they choose to use it. In the case of iCloud, Apple offers its users 5GB, which honestly isn’t enough if you’re looking to backup things like photos and videos. Users who want more will have to pay a monthly subscription for it.
However for those who are still on the fence about subscribing, it appears that Apple is trying to entice users with free first month storage. This means that users who want to try out the service won’t need to pay for the first month upfront, after which they can decide if subscribing to iCloud storage is useful or not.
However we should point out that this first month free offer isn’t for everyone. It is only available to those who are not paying for iCloud storage. This means that if you’re already paying for iCloud storage, you won’t be getting one month free. That being said, we’re not sure if this is applicable to those who had previously subscribed and cancelled, or if it’s only available for brand new customers.
For those who have yet to subscribe, a 50GB iCloud storage plan will cost $0.99 a month, followed by 200GB which will cost $2.99 a month, and if you absolutely need more, the 2TB storage option is available at $9.99 a month.
