“Apple offered existing MobileMe customers a temporary extra 20GB of storage [over iCloud’s 5GB base level] to accommodate user data during the transition to the new service. Apple originally offered this extra storage for a month, but increased this timeframe to September 30 and has been notifying users of this upcoming change,” Kessler reports.
Kessler reports, “On September 30, Apple did make a change to users’ iCloud accounts; however, to users’ surprise, instead of a lowered storage level, their iCloud accounts kept the same 25GB of space and furthermore showed the expiration for the storage had been pushed back to 2050.”
