Apple has on September 9 at its media event seeded iOS 8 GM (gold master) to its registered developers, and stated to be launching iOS 8 final version next week. One of the new features as well as in iOS 8 and OS X mavericks will be Apple’s iCloud Drive, which will allow users to store a number of photos, videos and personal data, over the existing iCloud service.
Now it looks like, Apple has dropped the price of iCloud Storage, just ahead of the final public version of iOS 8 launch, which you still get 5GB of free storage, but now onwards an extra 20GB will cost you just $0.99 per month.
Pricing of the iCloud storage goes like this; if you need more than 200GB, it will set you back for $3.99 per month, 500GB $9.99 and 1TB at $19.99. Although, the new price listings are not live as yet, but we can expect them to be available when iCloud Drive launches in the coming days.
Notably, the iCloud Drive is such a service from Apple, will sync everything that you have stored on iCloud on all your devices, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and the service will work with all Apple’s OS X Mac range of desktop systems and laptops as well.
Using iCloud Drive is easy and you will be able to store photos and also save some things like documents, et al and you will be able to edit Docs on multiple devices.
However, the iOS 8 and OX Yosemite unveil a Dropbox-like service called iCloud Drive, where you can store files to sync across multiple platforms. Hopefully we’ll see that go live later today, though.
