Verizon Cloud, a new backup service that first came to Android last month, is now available on iOS. The app allows you to backup your photos and videos to the cloud, and access contacts, documents, and music that you’ve stored in the cloud using your PC.
Verizon Cloud is a free service that backs up your contacts, photos and videos to secure cloud storage, so you don’t need to lose your important content if you lose your phone. Your iPhone puts your digital life in your pocket… until the day that it slips out of your pocket!
As well as backing up your photos and videos, Verizon Cloud lets you share content with friends and family, stream music and access your documents, and backup other content from your computer’s hard drive. It also gives existing user’s of Verizon’s Backup Assistant and Backup Assistant Plus services access to the data they’re already stored.
Verizon Cloud free up to a point — as the app’s description notes above — but if you need more than 500MB of space you’ll need to upgrade. Verizon also offers 25GB of space for $2.99 per month, or 125GB for $9.99 per month.
The Verizon Cloud app for iOS isn’t quite as useful as the Android version, because Apple’s restrictions prevent certain features. For example, the Android version also backs up text messages, call logs, and contacts, while the iOS version does not.
You can download Verizon Cloud now from the App Store.
