Apple Launches 2TB iCloud Storage Plan just week ahead of the iPhone 7 launch event on September 7. Apple is rumoured to unveil the new 256GB storage variant, and upping the iCloud storage plan seems certainly seems to be an associated strategic move.
The new introduced tier of 2TB iCloud Storage Plan is in market for the users alongside the 1TB plan. The Cupertino giant introduced the 2TB plan for $19.99 per month as well for Indian users, the new plan costs Rs. 1,300 per month.
Expanding to 2TB would follow the current iCloud storage pattern, as 9to5Mac notes. The former largest tier, 1TB, was roughly eight times as large as the top storage model - 128GB.
With the bump up to 2TB of iCloud storage available to users, Apple appears to want to maintain the same ratio for the anticipated 256GB storage variant.
For users who are unaware, when you first sign up for iCloud storage, the first 5GB is free. After that, Apple offers plans for 50GB, 200GB, 1TB, and now 2TB as well.
In the US, these plans cost $0.99, $2.99, $9.99, and $19.99 per month respectively. In India, these additions plans will cost Rs. 65, Rs. 190, Rs. 650, and Rs. 1,300 per month respectively.
