“Apple on Tuesday added a new 2TB storage tier to its iCloud options,” Chris Hauk reports for MacTrast. “The new tier doubles the previously available high-end option of 1TB. The new option will cost users $19.99 per month.
“Apple will keep its other plans unchanged at 99 cents a month for 50GB, $2.99 a month for 200GB and $9.99 a month for 1TB,” Hauk reports. “Also unchanged is the free 5GB amount of storage automatically offered to all iCloud users.”
“The new option comes just one week ahead of Apple’s September 7th event, where the company is expected to announce a new iPhone 7 Plus handset with a dual-lens back-facing camera,” Hauk reports. “The camera, if it materializes, would theoretically produce much larger, high-resolution photos, resulting in a need for more storage space for users who store their images in iCloud.”
