Apple slashes top-tier iCloud storage price in half
So in short, here's how all of iCloud's tiers currently stand in terms of storage and pricing:
- 5GB: free of charge (unchanged)
- 50GB: $0.99 per month (unchanged)
- 200GB: $2.99 per month (unchanged)
- 2TB: $9.99 per month (down from $19.99)
How does iCloud stack against the alternatives? Google Drive, for example, still looks like a great deal in the low tier. Just $1.99 per month gets you 100GB of storage, with unlimited space for photos that does not count towards that limit. Heavy users, on the other hand, might be better off with iCloud, as Google's $9.99 tier gets them "just" 1TB of space instead of iCloud's 2TB.
Dropbox is looking like a tougher sell. It offers 1TB of cloud storage for $9.99 monthly, with no cheaper plans available.
