The Cupertino Giant has introduced a brand new tier in their storage plans. Now Apple is ready to offer a 2TB iCloud storage plan alongside the 1 TB plan. The company has informed that the plan will cost $19.99 per month. This extraordinary move comes just a week before the release date of the iPhone 7 which is set at September 7th. The people are eagerly waiting for the 256GB variant which is going to be introduced and the 2TB iCloud storage plan is looking like an associated strategic move by the company.
Expanding to 2TB would follow the current iCloud storage pattern, as 9to5Mac notes. The former largest tier, 1TB, was roughly eight times as large as the top storage model – 128GB. With the bump up to 2TB of iCloud storage available to users, Apple appears to want to maintain the same ratio for the anticipated 256GB storage variant. For users who are unaware, when you first sign up for iCloud storage, the first 5GB is free. After that, Apple offers plans for 50GB, 200GB, 1TB, and now 2TB as well. In the US, these plans cost $0.99, $2.99, $9.99, and $19.99 per month respectively.
In any case, Apple is going to unveil the iPhone 7 with its new storage options next week. This year, Apple is sticking with minor changes and looks to break its cycle. The camera on the 4.7-inch variant is pegged to get OIS, while the 5.5-inch variant is said to sport a new dual camera module. The Cupertino giant is ditching the 16GB base storage variant, in favor of 32GB. There’s also a Space Black variant that is expected to be introduced. Rest assured the people are very excited about the iPhone 7 and a lot have tried to compare it with other smartphones and it is looking tough for Apple for the first time.
