iCloud Drive Will Also Offer 500GB and 1TB Options, Here’s the Pricing

Apple first unveiled iCloud Drive back during WWDC 2014 in June, when it announced that it will offer 20GB of storage for $0.99 per month and 200GB of storage for $9.99 per month. Those are in addition to the 5GB of storage everyone gets for free. Now, Apple has updated its iCloud Drive site with two new pricing tiers, including plans for 500GB and 1TB of storage.

The 500GB option will set you back $9.99 per month while the 1TB storage option will cost $19.99. That’s not exactly cheap and there are more affordable alternatives out there, but if you’re in Apple’s ecosystem it’s probably your most seamless bet.

iCloud Drive isn’t live yet, but it will launch sometime around the time iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite hit the market, or possibly later. For now Apple only says iCloud Drive, which will allow you to save files like presentations, images, photos, movies and more in a cloud-based folder, is “coming soon.”
