Apple has updated the iCloud support documents to reflect the updated pricing tiers of iCloud storage. Apple had announced a new pricing tier for iCloud storage at its ‘Hey Siri’ event earlier this month.
The new pricing tiers offer more storage space to users at a rate that is lower than before. Previously, 20GB of storage space on iCloud costed $0.99, but thanks to the new pricing tier, users will get 50GB of storage space for the same price. For the 200GB and 1TB iCloud storage space tier, Apple has reduced the prices to $2.99 (from $3.99) and $9.99 ($19.99), respectively.
The updated support documents also contain pricing information for countries in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific.
Apple also notes that in countries where local currency is not supported, users will be charged in US$, while countries in the Eurozone will be charged in Euros. Additionally, in countries where VAT is applicable like in Australia, Iceland, Germany, France, and others, the VAT amount is already included in the price from Apple.
Apple will also automatically upgrade customers to the new storage tiers from September 16.
