Piece of mind for a pretty low cost.
The whole human mind is free but peace of mind is priceless!
I personally don't see the point in paying for data storage. I have 2 iPhones and 4 iPads all on my account and never needed any more storage then the 5gb they give you free. All my photos and important documents are stored free on different sites. IMHO if your paying to store data it's like throwing money away. what exactly are you lot storing in iCloud?
I don't recommend any one use shoebox, they resell your photos.. Read the t&c first,

Dropbox is probably second best can get nearly 23gb free..

But nothing will beat apples iCloud, is does so much others can't..
If only they had an android app, I would move from Dropbox.

I use iCloud's Photo Sharing, Apple don't charge a thing to store photos in that way and it means all my IOS photos are archived in the cloud (as well as on my PC and a portable storage drive).
Each Album has a limit of 5000 photos and there are some size restrictions on individual photos, I can't remember the numbers... but as a result I don't pay anything to Apple for ICloud storage.
What's the size restrictions?is it auto backup? Anybody explain please... Thanks
If you change from the older iCloud Photo Sharing to the newer iCloud Photo Library them all photos get uploaded automatically. Also (as an option) once the full-resolution copy is safely on the Cloud the copy on the device can be downsized to a thumbnail copy to save space. If you actively look at the thumbnail it reloads the full- resolution version.

With Google giving you 100gb of free storage, although myself being an apple user I never used their service as a mean for storage...
All these fantastic INCREDIBLE bits of huge Data Storage 'allowances' they be giving FREELY on a whim like EACH!, to every one of us 2 Billion people+ on this planet, kinda gets me seriously thinking .. where the hell are they storing ALLLLLL these massively huge bits of Data?, &/or what kinda Servers are they running all these volitile bits of Data on in the first place? .. like WOWWWWWW?!, lool. :-)
It is not as much as you like to think as 1,000,0000 individually uploaded of say, "Bridge over troubled waters", if same, after an initial ~10% CRC checked, is stored as one file. That was how Megaupload and other hosts worked. However a lot of "free" storage is idle cloud storage which companies have bought for making money with, when available they just let others use it cheaply or freely. The analogy is like a huge hotel with 10,000 rooms, they make money from corporate customers, however the spare capacity not used during quiet periods could be made available as free. Even if you are getting it "free", some one must be paying for you directly and then somehow "they" get the money from you indirectly.


VERY INTERESTING? .. I hear u? .. thanx lool. :-)
WTF??? 1GB. is that actually right, i immediately read it as 1TB but no, it really says GB. just what does Apple think giving away such a vast amount of storage space is going to do.

next theyll be announcing free email accounts with a wapping 100mb of storage space.
Google Drive & Microsoft OneDrive = 15gb free including document editors. Google Drive doesn't count documents in their format towards your storage so is unlimited free. OneDrive I'm not sure.
Dropbox 2gb free, mega 50gb free
1gb is very stingy. Not likely to make people want iDevices is it?

A GB for documents is quite a lot of storage space. Back in the day small companies ran with about 500Mb of storage. :)
Cant do much with 1gb these days. Thats a bit miserly apple.
Heat for the offer though.

Cold. Microsoft's Office365 Home provides 1TB of storage EACH for five users, plus the full MS Office Pro Suite (Word, Excel, Access, Powerpoint, Publisher, Onenote, etc.) for either £7.99 a month or £79.99 a year. Right now, they are also giving a £25 Microsoft Store credit, so potentially 5TB of storage, 5 MS Office Pro Suite licences for one year, all for £54.99. Plus Quidco cashback, I think.

Or, you could just use the 7GB free storage MS give you with OneDrive anyway.

That's a very tempting package, especially since I have a windows phone in addition to windows laptops and tablets.

I have all of the 'important' folders on my Windows laptop synchronised automatically with OneDrive so I can always access them on my phone if I need to, including Word and Excel files. Having such a large capacity, I can synchronise everything I would want to and if my laptop ever gets stolen or the hdd crashes, everything will still be there. They've recently upped the maximum single file size to 10GB, and have made sharing / integration even easier. There's a cheaper option if you only need one Office Suite licence, but I use all five anyway, so it's a real bargain as far as I'm concerned.

Fair enough but sounds very business orientated for a normal user just to store photos and a few docs it still seems expensive but I am on android
I'd never have guessed you were an Android User.

As for iCloud being business orientated, it couldn't be further from the truth in its implementation.im guessing you use Android for customisation, that's more a business orientated approach.

For the record I use iOS and Android. These reduced prices suit my needs.

I can get 100gb for $1.99 a month or 1tb for $9.99 a month so how is this a good deal?

Because iCloud isn't just storage, and I'm willing to bet whatever cloud storage you're on about won't work as seemlessly with Apple products, which a lot of people have.

what is it then lol I cloud storage is cloud storage

https://www.apple.com/uk/icloud/

A lot of it is just automation but you also get iWork for iCloud which is great for group editing documents, and there's a whole bunch more I can't be arsed explaining. Either way it's not just storage, and again works seemlessly with iOS and OSX too which makes it worthwhile paying a little bit extra if you are part of the Apple ecosystem.

Whatever Google drive space you purchase goes towards your:

Google Drive (Mac/Windows/iOS/Android)
Google Plus Photo backup (Mac/Windows/iOS/Android)
GMail (Mac/Windows/iOS/Android)
Contacts (Mac/Windows/iOS/Android)
Calendar (Mac/Windows/iOS/Android)
Docs, Sheets, Slides and Forms (Mac/Windows/iOS/Android)

Then there's 20,000 songs you can upload to Google Music for free which will match songs from your library when possible (iTunes Match is still being advertised for £21.99 a year - hopefully this is shelved with the iCloud plans but I don't know).

Of course, iCloud works seamlessly with iOS devices but all of the services above are on offer via the app store and also work on Windows, OS X, Android, iOS and anywhere you have a browser (like Google Play Music in Linux).

Pretty robust for anyone who uses multiple platforms (apart from Windows Phone, I really wish Google would suport that!).
