Former MobileMe Users Now Being Shifted To Standard iCloud Storage
Apple once had a service called MobileMe. It wasn’t exactly a hit, in fact, Apple shut it down. It then released iCloud which has a considerably large user base and is quite popular. MobileMe was shut down last year, those who had paid for the service were offered a complimentary 20GB iCloud upgrade. The upgrade wasn’t going to be offered for life. Apple today started emailing former MobileMe customers who had received […]

MobileMe users reach end of iCloud storage road
