Apple Broadens iCloud+ Storage Offerings with Fresh 6TB and 12TB Choices


Apple has introduced two new storage sizes, 6TB and 12TB, to its iCloud+ service, which formerly had a maximum capacity of 2TB.

Each Apple ID account comes with 5GB of free cloud storage, and users can choose to upgrade to larger capacities, such as 50GB or 200GB, or even 2TB, for a monthly fee.

Besides the increased storage for files, iCloud+ subscribers receive extra features like Hide My Email, Custom Email Domain, and iCloud Private Relay, which functions similarly to a VPN.

Presently, iCloud+ subscribers pay $0.99 per month for 50GB of storage, $2.99 per month for 200GB, and $9.99 per month for 2TB. The expanded storage choices will be accessible starting from September 18th, with the 6TB option priced at $29.99 per month and the 12TB option at $59.99 per month.

By comparison, Google offers cloud storage options with 5TB and 10TB capacities for $25 and $50 per month, respectively.

Apple also features a Family Sharing feature, allowing subscribers to share their storage with up to five family members.

Users can securely save original photos, videos, and other files on iCloud, making them shareable as needed and providing a backup solution for their devices for convenient retrieval at any time.
