The maximum capacity of an Apple iCloud+ account just expanded from 2 terabytes to 12 terabytes. There’s also a new 6TB option. Either one is a heap of storage for Mac, iPad and iPhone user to hold images, videos and other files.
The storage plans also come with useful bonus features, many of which are focused on privacy.
iCloud+ adds 6TB and 12TB storage options
Apple gives all its customers 5GB of iCloud online storage for free, giving users a place to store a modest number of images or other files. These is accessible anywhere there’s internet access via Apple’s Files application or a web app. Those who want more capacity can subscribe to iCloud+.
Previously, the storage options were 50GB, 200GB and 2TB. The monthly cost for these is $0.99, $2.99 and $10.99, respectively.
But as of Monday, iCloud+ now includes two new plans: 6TB for $29.99 per month and 12TB for $59.99 per month.
“The new plans are great for users with large photo and video libraries or those using Family Sharing,” said Apple.
The additional storage tiers were announced last Tuesday at Apple’s Wonderlust event, along with the iPhone 15 and Apple Watch Series 9.
All the for-pay iCloud+ storage plans come with bonus features. And not the usual dreck that some companies call “bonus features.”
