Do you have a subscription to iCloud? Then we have good news, because Apple is adjusting the subscriptions. This is changing at iCloud!
Apple is making changes to iCloud
If you need a lot of storage space on your iPhone, iPad or Mac, chances are you have a subscription to iCloud. With such a subscription you buy more digital storage space for a low price, freeing up more memory on your device. Everyone who has iCloud gets 5 GB of storage space as standard, but for many Apple users that is (not nearly) enough.

That’s why Apple allows you to choose from several iCloud subscriptions, depending on how much storage space you think you need. You always had a choice of three options, but when announcing the iPhone 15, Apple announced that the subscriptions would be adjusted. And that’s good news, because you will soon have more options to choose from with iCloud. This is changing!
These are the new subscriptions
If you have a subscription to iCloud, you can digitally store important data such as your photos, backups of your Apple devices and files. These are often large files, making 5 GB of storage space quickly insufficient. You therefore already had the option to expand the storage space to 50 GB, 200 GB and 2 TB for a certain amount. However, that is still not enough for some users.
That is why Apple has added two more options, you can also expand to 6 TB and even 12 TB. This is especially useful for professional users of iCloud, as large video and media files can now be stored more easily. You pay a considerable monthly amount for the new subscriptions, these are all the options for purchasing more storage:
- 50GB of iCloud storage: 0.99 euros per month
- 200GB of iCloud storage: 2.99 euros per month
- 2TB of iCloud storage: 9.99 euros per month
- 6TB of iCloud storage: 29.99 euros per month
- 12TB of iCloud storage: 59.99 euros per month
Share iCloud subscription with family members
If you buy a new iPhone, it is often cheaper to expand the storage space with an iCloud subscription. Apple quickly charges hundreds of euros more for an iPhone with 256 GB or 512 GB, while with iCloud you only pay a few euros per month. In addition, you can share the iCloud subscription with family members, so you have more storage space together and can divide the monthly amount.
