Apple Introduces 2 TB Storage Tier for iCloud

Apple has introduced a 2 TB tier iCloud storage plan ahead of the launch of macOS Sierra, which includes a feature allowing users to offload their Documents and Desktop folders to the cloud if their computer doesn’t have enough storage. Priced at $20 a month, this is fairly expensive, and few users will need this much storage. But I guess for those who do want to trust their files to iCloud Drive, it’s going to be useful.

ICloud 2TB

You can upgrade your storage plan from the OS X or iOS iCloud settings.

  1. I think Apple should provide cloud storage sufficient for the device being registered . . . .

    I recently upgraded the OS on my 32-gig iPhone — never used the cloud in the past, but the reminder pop-up (spam) was so relentless and annoying I finally said YES.

    Next time I opened the phone, now I’m getting pop-up alerts that I don’t have enough space in the cloud to back up

    . . . so why the heck did it worry me to death to GET the cloud if the Cloud isn’t big enough for my 32 gigs??? (Rhetorical question! We all know it’s for money.)

  3. Is icloud drive still devoid of selective sync?
    Seems mostly pointless with it…
    Or is there a way to not have everything syncing to everywhere?

    • I could really use that, too. I recently upgraded to 200GB, not that I need it yet. And I have to say that, after the very sudden death of our iPad Pro (the big one), everything automatically restored so perfectly on what appeared to be a brand-new replacement that it was like nothing had ever occurred, thanks to the iCloud. Nothing with MS works like that, believe me.

      If we had a Mac I’d go for the 2TB immediately.
