Yesterday Apple dropped the price of their iCloud storage, this was done ahead of the launch of Apple iOS 8, which will be released next Wednesday the 17th of September. Apple will also launch iCloud Drive next week, this is a new app which will let you store and sync your documents, photos, and more across multiple devices. Apple has now added a couple of new apps to their iCloud Beta website, this includes the new iCloud Drive application and also a new settings application.
Apple will introduce a wide range of new feature with iOS 8 next week, which will include HealthKit, updated Photos, messages, and other apps, plus a completely new design and lots more features. We are looking forward to seeing all of the new features that will be launching with Apple iOS 8, it should be available to dowload some time next Wednesday, as soon as we get some more details, we will let you guys know. As you know, on every account,  Apple offers 5GB of free cloud storage space that can be filled fast.
For comparison OneDrive is the same; 100 GB for $50 , Dropbox for $100 gives you 100 GB, and Google Drive for $120 already provides the user repository to 1 TB.
Along with updates to its Mac OS X and iOS operating systems, Apple unveiled a new file-storage system called iCloud Drive, as well as new prices to make its cloud solution even more competitive. But figuring out which features appeal to cloud-storage customers is like hitting a moving target, so we've put together an updated comparison list of the competition to show exactly where Apple's new cloud offering stands.
The prices and options — as currently listed by each service — for large amounts of cloud storage have become fairly competitive, but vary widely. A look at Apple's new iCloud Drive control panel during Apple senior vice-president of software engineering Craig Federighi's presentation at WWDC. Cheaper iCloud storage prices just went into effect, making the service more competitive with Dropbox, Amazon Cloud Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, and Google Drive.

The new prices make Applea€™s storage more in line with competitors like Amazon, Dropbox, Google, and Microsoft (see chart). You can choose for each app whether or not to include its locally stored data in an iCloud backup. This is a separate service , designed to prevent  users migration to competitors , including Dropbox and Google Drive.
After the initial synchronization, it opens up access to files Mac- computers as well as iOS- devices and transparently synchronizes content between them.
Competing services;Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive and Google Drive offers 2 GB , 7 GB and 15 GB respectively.
It's a cloud storage service where you can backup any type of file, and access anywhere you have an Internet connection. Some of the intangibles baked into each include uptime reliability, integration with each company's larger software suite, and of course, trustworthiness when it comes to protecting your personal data.

Powered by its own proprietary technology, Mashable is the go-to source for tech, digital culture and entertainment content for its dedicated and influential audience around the globe. None of the other services can handle automated iOS backups, but all have various options for photo uploading and synchronizing and local file access through iOS apps. With iCloud Photo Library enabled, each connected iOS and OS X devicea€™s photos dona€™t count against storage, but rather only the entire master, full-resolution set stored on Applea€™s servers. We give you the scoop on what's new, what's best and how to make the most out of the products you love.

Previously an annual subscription of $20 for iPhone , iPad and Mac users was able to provide 10 GB of additional space, $40 for 20 GB and  $100 – 50 GB.
In addition, it is integrated with the Mail application and helps to send large attachments as it not not supported free e-mail services .
Regardless, Apple's new iCloud pricing plan puts it in a relatively good competitive position when compared to some other options on the market.
Subscribers at the 500GB tier are automatically upgraded to 1TB since the price is the same. Without iCloud Photo Library, all locally stored photos are backed up unless youa€™ve disabled Photo Library in Manage Storage.
Although Apple's operating-system updates have been slated for a fall release, the company did not specify when the new iCloud prices would be available, nor did it divulge sizes or prices for the announced up-to-1TB tiers. You can use iPhoto, Photos, or Image Capture, among other tools, to sync or copy and delete photos from an iOS device. Dropbox and Box have been around for years, and Microsoft recently revamped its cloud offering with a new name and new storage tiers.
