Apple has implemented about a 25% pricing increase in its iCloud+ subscription in different regions, such as South America, the UK, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Scandinavia. Meanwhile, prices in the US, Canada, and European Union will still be the same.

The subscription offers additional iCloud storage, allowing Apple customers to exceed the free 5GB storage. The plan has three options: 50 GB, 200 GB, or 2 TB storage. Other features premium subscribers can get include Hide My Email, Custom Email Domain, and HomeKit Secure Video support. However, to continuously experience all these things, customers in different markets will now have to observe Apple’s price hike.

Affected markets include Brazil, Bulgaria, Colombia, Denmark, Egypt, Norway, Peru, Poland, Romania, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Sweden, Tanzania, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates.

The increase happened the same week Apple started the shutdown of My Photo Stream, a formerly feature in the iCloud service. The feature, which was free, used to upload the user’s most recent photos, allowing them to view the media and select the ones they want to save to another device. It would keep the photos for 30 days but later delete them from iCloud after the said period. During the announcement of the shutdown, Apple promoted its iCloud Photos sync service, which needs an iCloud subscription.
