As a thank you to former MobileMe members who moved to iCloud, Apple has extended the complimentary storage upgrade they received until September 30, 2013. This extension applies to accounts moved to iCloud between October 12th, 2011 and August 1st, 2012.

How do I know if the complimentary storage extension applies to me?
If you are a former MobileMe member and had access to more than 5GB of MobileMe storage when you moved your account to iCloud, then you received a complimentary iCloud storage upgrade automatically. That upgrade has now been extended, free of charge.

How much complimentary storage did I receive?
Your complimentary storage upgrade was based on the amount of MobileMe storage you were paying for when you moved to iCloud. You were granted either the 10GB, 20GB, or 50GB storage upgrade.

To check which storage upgrade you received:
• On an iOS device: Go to Settings > iCloud > Account.
• On a Mac: Go to System Preferences > iCloud, then click Manage followed by View Account.
• On a PC: Open the iCloud Control Panel for Windows, then click Manage followed by View Account.

How long does the complimentary storage extension last?
Apple will continue to provide you with this additional storage until September 30, 2013, or until you choose to upgrade your iCloud storage plan.
