Apple Cuts iCloud Storage Prices, 50GB Now $0.99 a Month

Another one of Apple’s always anticipated September events has come to a close, and along with the welcome reveal of powerful new iPhones, a long-rumoured new, larger iPad, new Apple Watch colours and accessories, and a long-overdue Apple TV update, Apple also revealed a new pricing strategy for its popular iCloud service.

While many users were hoping that Apple would increase the 5GB of storage offered for free tier iCloud users, the company instead changed its paid options to offer more storage at a reduced price.

Here’s the monthly pricing prior to today’s event:

5GB – Free
20GB – $0.99
200GB – $3.99
500GB – $9.99
1TB – $19.99

And the monthly pricing as it stands currently:

5GB – Free
50GB – $0.99
200GB – $2.99
1TB – $9.99

I don’t know about you, but that 50GB tier is looking mighty attractive right about now.
