iCloud Storage gets a Price Cut

One announcement that went almost unnoticed during Apple's "Hey Siri" media event on Wednesday was iCloud storage pricing. Apple lowered the monthly fees for additional storage beyond the 5GB free level, making it more affordable than it was before.

Here's how iCloud's monthly storage costs break down:

200 GB$2.99$3.99
500 GB---$9.99
1 TB$9.99$19.99

The new pricing doesn't make extra iCloud storage pricing as cheap as some other services, but it is now more affordable than it was. That's good news for people who need more online space for their backups, photo library, and document storage.
