The wait for Apple’s iCloud cloud storage service will continue, but yesterday, Apple finally unveiled a website for the service, therein shedding a light on pricing and features.
Users will get 5GB of free storage at sign-up, and thankfully, purchased music, apps, etc. won’t count against the limit. Neither will photos from your Photo Stream, the app that auto-syncs your uploads across all your iOS devices. An additional 10GB will run $20 annually, 20GB for $40, and 50GB for $100, the same pricing as Amazon’s Cloud.
It seems that iCloud will launch simultaneously with iOS 5 in the fall, as updating your software on any device will automatically back-up apps to the cloud.
