This is kind of a nice bonus.
Apple on Wednesday made its updated iCloud storage plans active, improving some tiers while eliminating another and leaving the free default plan unchanged.
The free tier remained at 5 gigabytes of storage while the US$0.99/month option was bumped from 20 gigabytes of storage to 50. The 200 gigabyte tier is down to US$2.99 a month, the 500 gigabyte plan was eliminated and the 1 terabyte tier went down to US$9.99/month.
Users with a previous 500 gigabyte plan are being migrated to 1 terabyte automatically, despite the extra cost. Subscribers willing to sacrifice can downgrade to 200 gigabytes.
Fees outside the U.S. vary, and Apple has updated its pricing chart to reflect this. In Canada, for example, paid subscriptions start at US$1.29 CAD for 50 gigabytes.
As always, let us know what you make of this from your end and stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
