“Apple on Wednesday made its updated iCloud storage plans active, improving some tiers while eliminating another and leaving the free default plan unchanged,” Roger Fingas reports for AppleInsider.
“The free tier remains locked at 5 gigabytes, but the $0.99 option has been upgraded from 20 gigabytes to 50, and the 200 gigabyte tier is now a dollar less per month at $2.99,” Fingas reports. “A 500-gigabyte plan has been eliminated, although the cost of the 1 terabyte tier is down $10 to $9.99.”
“Anyone using 500 gigabytes is being migrated to 1 terabyte automatically, despite the extra cost,” Fingas reports. “Subscribers willing to sacrifice can downgrade to 200 gigabytes.”

MacDailyNews Take: Yes, lo and behold, this morning our old $9.99/mo. 500MB iCloud Storage Plans now have 1TB capacity for the same $9.99/mo.
