Along the launch of the iCloud frontend on iCloud.com, Apple just flipped the switch and started displaying the pricing of additional iCloud storage inside iOS. As you can see in the screenshot above, additional storage is priced steadily at $2/GB/Year, and allows you to have up to 50GB of extra data on Apple’s servers, in addition to the 5GB offered.
That is, an extra 10GB will cost you $20 a year, then 20GB are $40 and 50GB go for $100. For Europeans, the prices are respectively 16€, 32€ and 80€ according to iSpazio.
As a reminder, iCloud is Apple’s new cloud service offering that will, starting this fall with iOS 5, allow you to get a free email address @me.com, a synced calendar and address book, not to mention that it will store your pictures from photostream, keep your apps in sync and backup your iDevices. Then, it will also allow you to store music you haven’t purchased on iTunes and that Apple can’t match with its own files.
On the other hand, Apple doesn’t count purchased music and other media towards that limit. So unless you have a lot of iDevices on the same iCloud account with each a lot of app data to backup, you’re most likely not gonna need much of this.
How does that look for you?
