New iCloud storage pricing.

Previously

10GB - £14/yr
20GB - £28/yr
50GB - £70/yr

Now

20GB - 79p/mo (£9.48/yr)
200GB - £2.99/mo (£35.88/yr)
500GB - £6.99/mo (£83.88/yr)
1TB - £14.99/mo (£179.88/yr)

Don't forget you can also pay for this using iTunes vouchers which you can usually get for 80% of the voucher value, making this even cheaper.

Just make sure your iCloud password isn't 'qwerty' or 'password1'

They need something between 20GB and 200GB IMO

Agreed about the plans they should be more inline with storage capacities of the devices plus a little more considering the new way ios8 stores shared files.

Icloud hacking going on so they had to drop the prices, plus try one drive or Dropbox ( it's free).

Wonder if the Family Sharing feature in iOS8 will allow for more space for owned multiple devices under one account....or at least allow multiple linked accounts under one banner as it's a disgrace that you could have 2 iPhones, various iPods and iPads under the same roof and only get the basic allowance.

These prices were announced way before the "hacks". Technically it wasn't even hacked they just guessed their passwords, hence the little joke in the OP

Can u use multiple apple accounts for iTunes cloud. ? Eg myself and my partners?

Each account has it's own separate storage space, but you can log multiple devices into the same account so they all upload to the same space if you like.

Bear in mind you get 5GB free per account, so if you have 2 devices with less than 5GB of photo's etc on each you may as well go the free route by using separate accounts.

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.

Read the news properly. Also, Dropbox hasn't 10% the added functionality of iCloud Drive. Learn how the Apple eco-system works.

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.

which is £1.22 for 100gb or £6.15 for a tb

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.

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

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!).

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.

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.

I got asus webstorage 100GB for £17 for 12 months. One word. AVOID. Im looking to purchase dropbox pro, been using it for years, no problems
