Apple has launched 2 TB of data storage service on their iCloud Drive at a monthly fee of 1,300. The new tier adds to the existing options of 50 GB, 200 GB and 1 TB available on the online storage service. The upgrade comes after reports suggested that an upcoming iPhone 7 variant will have 256 GB of storage capacity.

Highlights

  • It costs $19.99 in the US

  • 50GB, 200GB, 1TB iCloud storage options still available

Apple has introduced a new tier in its iCloud storage plans. Alongside the 1TB plan, the Cupertino giant has now introduced a 2TB plan for $19.99 per month as well. For Indian users, the new plan costs Rs. 1,300 per month.

This move comes just a week before the iPhone 7 launch event on September 7. Apple is heavily rumoured to unveil the new 256GB storage variant, and upping the iCloud storage plan seems certainly seems to be an associated strategic move.

Expanding to 2TB would follow the current iCloud storage pattern, as 9to5Mac notes. The former largest tier, 1TB, was roughly eight times as large as the top storage model – 128GB. With the bump up to 2TB of iCloud storage available to users, Apple appears to want to maintain the same ratio for the anticipated 256GB storage variant.
