New iCloud Storage Pricing Plans Go Live

In preparation for release of iCloud Drive and iCloud Photo Library services to the public, Apple has rolled out the new pricing plans for its cloud storage. Starting today, any user can subscribe to more affordable iCloud Storage plans, starting from $0.99 a month for 20GB and going up to $19.99 a month for 1TB.

During the presentation of iPhone 6 and Apple Watch, Apple's Senior Vice President of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller shared with the audience that the new version of Apple's iOS 8 will be available for download on September 17. With a release of iOS 8, users will be able to store all their photos, videos and documents in iCloud, which of course will require a lot of storage.

Apple provides 5GB for free, which, in my opinion, is not going to be enough even for a regular user, so ability to buy an additional storage at comparatively cheap price is very welcome.

As for me, I have decided to wait until I can use the iCloud Drive and iCloud Photo Library on daily basis in order to know how much storage I will need and whatever the new services are worth switching from Dropbox, which by the way, has made its pricing plans more affordable as well.
