Apple iCloud pricing unveiled
A teaser site for developers has accompanied pricing details for Apple’s consumer cloud service.
Apple today launched the beta site for its cloud computing offering, known as iCloud.
The web portal is currently only available to developers but Apple has kept up user interest by revealing the US pricing for the service.
Apple users will instantly be allocated 5GB of storage for free but an extra 10GB will go for $20, 20GB for $40 and 50GB for $100 annually.
The iCloud was announced at this year’s Worldwide Developers conference (WWDC) back in June.
“Some people think the cloud is a hard disk in the sky,” said Apple chief executive (CEO) Steve Jobs at the launch. “We think it's way more than that. We call it iCloud.”
It will enable customers to sync their mail, contact and calendar information across different Apple devices, along with already purchased apps.
It will also automatically transfer Pages, Numbers and Keynote files to the cloud, with the ability to push the content across numerous devices.
The full scale launch of iCloud is expected in the autumn, along with new version of Apple’s mobile operating system – iOS5.
