Apple has expanded their iCloud storage plan lineup to offer dramatically increased storage capacities for a monthly fee. If you just upgraded and then enabled iCloud backups for the first time, you’ll want to be sure to start an iCloud backup manually to get your first backup complete.
Ever since iCloud Storage plans were made cheaper prior to the release of iOS 8, I have been torn about upgrading.
Pricing differs depending on your country, and for countries where the local currency isn’t supported, the default is US dollars.
Once you choose which plan you want to upgrade to, you’ll be asked to enter your Apple ID details, and then go through the usual process of making a purchase. In preparation for iOS 8 Apple has updated their iCloud storage plans and while theya€™re still more expensive than Dropbox and Google Drive, the new pricing and storage is far better than anything offered by Apple ever before.
Check out the steps below to get signed up for the new iCloud storage plans and make the storage o digital files a lot easier starting today. The first question you should be asking yourself is why would you want iCloud storage over Dropbox or Google Drive? While the $0.99 plan sounds very tempting, this will get used up very quickly with iCloud backups. Now that you know the basics, herea€™s how to upgrade your iCloud storage, which you can do right now with iOS 7.1 or above.
The page should take a second or so to load, and you should see the upgrade options listed above.
Apple offers 5 GB of storage for free with any iCloud account, which they say should be fine for most users. Check out the Gear Live Tools that let you integrate Gear Live into your site and add Google features. As a token of appreciation to MobileMe members who switched to iCloud last year, Apple has extended the complimentary storage upgrade until September 30, 2013 - another full year.

In a Support document posted online, Apple explains that this extension applies to customers whose accounts moved to iCloud between October 12th, 2011 and August 1st, 2012.
Users looking to find out how much of this extension applies to them are offered instructions to do the checking on their Mac, iOS device, or Windows PC.
On a PC: Open the iCloud Control Panel for Windows, then click Manage followed by View Account.
Apple notes that “based on the amount of MobileMe storage you were paying for when you moved to iCloud. The Cupertino giant plans to continue to provide users with this additional storage until September 30, 2013, but also until they choose to upgrade their iCloud storage plan.
Customers looking to buy even more storage can purchase one of Apple’s standard storage upgrade plans at the regular price. Those who have already upgraded their storage plan before September 30, 2012 will see their upgrade automatically extended at no additional charge until September 30, 2013. Additionally, OS X Yosemite offers the iCloud Drive feature which will rely on the same cloud storage capacity for use as well. Unfortunately the default 5GB free plan remains unchanged, and that size is very challenging to use for most users particularly if you own more than one device. If you decide you don’t want the different storage plan, you can change or cancel it at any time by going back to the Settings and just selecting a new plan, or going back to the 5GB plan.

Next, scroll to the very bottom and tap on iCloud Backup to turn automatic backups to the cloud on.
With even the lowest level of iCloud storage, you can fit around 3-4, depending on the size of the backup. The ability to build iCloud storage into new apps and have those files easily accessible as they are in other apps like Dropbox will mean this feature will be used far more than it is today, making that extra space well worth it.

In other words, if you opt to pay for 10 GB a year, you will actually have 15 GB total--the 10 GB that you are paying for, plus the original 5 GB that's included.
You just need enough space for mail, documents, camera roll, account information, settings and app data. However, with photos and videos eating up my storage space (not to mention the need to ensure that game data is safe – priorities, you know), it just might be the time to consider shelling out money for more storage. This is perfect for multiple devices as well as keeping more than one backup of each device. Youa€™ll be prompted to enter your iCloud login information and when the purchase is complete youa€™ll see a confirmation message, click OK to continue. Ita€™s worth noting that anyone currently paying for iCloud storage will see their accounts jump to the new capacity within a week or so automatically.
