Apple announced new iCloud pricing, let’s see how they stack up against Google’s Drive plans

After annoucing the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus along with the new Apple Watch, Apple also announced the new pricing of iCloud, its online cloud storage service.


Earlier this year at WWDC, Apple has announced that 20 GB storage on iCloud would cost you $0.99/month and as usual 5 GB will be available for free. Although Apple didn’t mention details about the other storage slabs.

Today, Apple has announced the remaining pricing details of each slab of its cloud storage service. According to the latest plan, 5 GB will be free as usual and 20 GB will cost $0.99/month (announced at WWDC). There is a 200 GB option which has been priced at $3.99/month. The company has also announced a 500 GB option which will set you back by $9.99/month and a 1 TB storage option as well, which would cost $19.99/month.

If we compare the new iCloud pricing with Google Drive’s new pricing, it’s a win for Google. It offers 100 GB for $1.99/month, 1 TB for $9.99/month, 10 TB for $99.99/month. Google also offers a massive 30 TB storage which will set you back by $299.99/month. Whereas Apple gives only 5 GB free iCloud storage, Google gives a whopping 15 GB free storage and Google Drive is also available on all cross platforms.

Apple also introduced a new payment service called ‘Apple Pay’ at the special Apple Event.
