The new iCloud pricing tiers have arrived.

On Wednesday, Apple put its new iCloud pricing tiers into effect, announcing the changes on its web site and offering users up to one terabyte of space for US$19.99 per month.

The new tiers range from 5GB to 1TB of online storage space and can be purchased now via the iCloud settings menu on any connected iOS device.


The company is carrying over the free 5GB tier with an option for 20GB of space for 99 cents per month, 200GB for US$3.99 per month, 500GB for US$9.99 per month and 1TB for US$19.99 per month.

As previously reported, Apple is carrying over the free 5GB tier that will join options 20GB for 99 cents per month, 200GB for $3.99 per month, 500GB for $9.99 per month and 1TB for $19.99 per month.

Apple first announced the new iCloud storage options at this year’s WWDC in June, but did not solidify pricing until Wednesday.

The new iCloud tiers go hand-in-hand with Apple’s upcoming iCloud Drive cross-platform file storage and sharing service that will go live with the launch of OS X 10.10 Yosemite. Like competitors Dropbox and Google, iCloud Drive allows users to store and sync data across Mac, iOS and Windows devices, with added support for advanced features like document editing and tagging.
