Apple has announced its first foray into the cloud file storage (think Dropbox, Google Drive) space with iCloud Drive, a welcome feature shipping with Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite.

The service quickly and easily allows you to sync files and folders across devices, including iOS devices like the iPhone and iPad, of course Mac OS X devices, and Windows PCs.

As demoed at WWDC, Mac OS X will now have a tab within Finder that acts just like any other folder.

Pricing:

  • First 5 GB Completely Free
  • 20 GB for $0.99 per month
  • 200 GB for $3.99 per month
  • further tiers available up to 1 TB
