At the WWDC event earlier this year, Apple announced that 20GB storage on iCloud would be priced at $0.99/month and 5GB will be provided to everyone for free, but it didn’t mention details for rest of the tiers. Today, the company has confirmed the remaining pricing and shed more light on each tier of its cloud storage service.
According to the latest plan, 5GB on iCloud is free for all, and 20GB indeed costs 0.99/month. The 200GB storage option is priced at $3.99 a month. Apple has introduced 500GB and 1TB storage options, where the former costs $9.99/month, and the latter sets you back by $19.99/month.
To compare it with Drive storage plans, Google offers 100GB for $1.99/month, 1TB for $9.99 per month, $10TB for $99.99 per month, going all the way up to 30TB which costs $299.99 per month. Also noteworthy is that Google offers 15GB for free to all, and Drive is available across platforms and is not restricted to Android.
