As per the report in the 9to5mac, Apple is reportedly offering free 200GB iCloud storage to iOS users as part of a promotional offer. The news was first spotted on the Reddit thread that pointed to the deal: new subscribers on the four big US carriers can get 200GB free for two months.
Moreover, this development comes just weeks before Apple is expected to launch the iPhones 2018 while the free 200GB iCloud storage will be available to users for a period of 2 months, claims a thread on Reddit.
According to reports, it has been claimed that Apple hasn’t made the official announcement for the same and this promotional offer with free 200GB iCloud storage for iOS users is said to be available for a limited period of time while users will be charged $2.99 (Rs. 200 roughly) after the two-month period. Once the offer period ends, users will have to manually discontinue the additional iCloud storage plan.
The free 200GB iCloud storage offer is expected to be exclusive in the US and that too for users on the top 4 wireless operators in the country namely, AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint. Moreover, the offer seems to provide the additional storage to new customers, and not to iOS users who have already subscribed for iCloud’s premium storage.
For the unknown, Apple offers 5GB of free iCloud storage currently with all of its devices while the base additional storage plan with 50GB of storage comes with a price tag of $0.99 (Rs. 75 in India). On the other hand, the 200GB paid storage plan from Apple is priced at $2.99 (Rs. 219 in India) while the 2TB of paid storage plan costs $9.99 (Rs. 749 in India).
