Apple has introduced a new iCloud+ plan tier to its customers by offering them the bigger 6TB and 12TB storage options.
This is a logical move for the Cupertino giant, especially now that its iPhones are capable of capturing high-resolution pictures and videos. For instance, iPhone models starting with iPhone 8 / iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X can capture 4K video at 60 frames per second. The new models can also capture up to 48MP ProRAW photos. With this, the free 5GB of iCloud storage is often insufficient for most users, especially photo and video enthusiasts who usually use their devices for different purposes and projects.
As such, Apple is giving the new option for the 6TB and 12TB storage capacities in its iCloud+ plan. This adds to the previous three paid options Apple used to offer:
As expected, the new tiers also come with the other benefits already in the earlier iCloud+ storage options. That includes automatic syncing, iCloud private relay, hidden personal email addresses, email domain personalization, HomeKit Secure Video, and V family sharing.
To upgrade to the new iCloud+ storage options on iPhone or iPad, follow the instructions below:
- Go to your device’s Settings app.
- Tap your name on the page.
- Tap iCloud, then Manage Account Storage or Manage Storage, or find Upgrade to iCloud+ and tap it.
- Select Buy More Storage or Change Storage Plan.
- This will show you the plans available. Select your preferred storage and follow the next prompts that will appear.
