Apple Launches 2TB iCloud Storage for $25.99, Ahead of iPhone 7 Event

If you’re a heavy iCloud user, Apple launched a new 2 terabyte (that’s 2000 gigabytes!) storage plan this afternoon, for $25.99 CAD:

Previously, the highest tier available was 1TB, priced at $12.99 CAD. Prices for 50GB and 200GB remain the same. With the growing popularity of 4K video, Apple customers have long been asking for more iCloud storage tiers, and now their prayers have been answered.

The entry 5GB iCloud storage remains free, but Apple really should increase this, so first-time iOS users can take advantage of iCloud backups. I know so many people that still sync their iPhones and iPads with their computers to do backups. That’s fine and dandy, until your computer dies or burns down in a savage fire.

During last year’s iPhone 6s special event, Apple introduced updated iCloud storage pricing. Looks like they have decided to add 2TB as an option quietly, saving time at the upcoming September 7th event for more important features and announcements.
