(Ha! The joke&rsquo;s on Apple &mdash; our local pond is only three feet deep.)</p> <p>I&rsquo;ve therefore spent time of late playing a thrilling game of &lsquo;manage the back-up&rsquo;, pruning chunks of my iCloud back-ups to the point I can&rsquo;t really hack any more away without rendering them pointless. In part, this was down to sheer stubbornness, but it was also a response to Apple&rsquo;s absurdly expensive iCloud pricing, which started at a laughable &pound;14 per year for 10 GB, moseyed on through&nbsp;&pound;28 per year for&nbsp;20 GB, and went all the way up to &pound;70 annually for a frankly laughable and piffling 50 GB.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>At WWDC 2014, Apple announced it was all-change for iCloud pricing, and the&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/cloud-drive/apples-icloud-just-got-cheaper/news">new tiers are live</a>. In the UK, you now get 20 GB for just under a tenner, 200 GB for &pound;36, 500 GB for &pound;84, and 1 TB for &pound;180. (Those playing close attention will wonder why 1 TB costs more than twice the price for 500 GB, but the answer is probably some combination of &lsquo;rounding errors in currency conversion&rsquo;, &lsquo;those Brits will pay it anyway&rsquo; and &lsquo;Apple lacks the scale for everyone to use 1 TB of data, so please just avoid that option &mdash; thanks&rsquo;.)</p> <p>It&rsquo;s still not enough. Apple still only gives you 5 GB of space for free. On the surface, that might compare favourably to rival services &mdash; Dropbox gives you 2 GB; OneDrive and Google Drive each offer 15. But such thinking evaporates when you realise how rapidly iCloud storage is eaten up by device back-ups. A single iPhone&rsquo;s Camera Roll can be larger than 5 GB in size, and if you&rsquo;ve multiple devices, you&rsquo;ve no chance of backing them all up.</p> <p>This is clearly a first-world problem with a whiff of entitlement about it. You might argue people should just stump up the cash. The thing is, not enough people back-up their data as it is, and Apple has a reputation for making things that&nbsp;<em>just work</em>. Right now, iCloud back-up often doesn&rsquo;t work or won&#39;t work without substantial management effort &mdash; and that isn&#39;t very Apple.</p> <p>And so people just switch it off. They&rsquo;re not prepared to pay extra after they&rsquo;ve splashed out loads of cash on a shiny new device, and certainly not when they&rsquo;ve bought two or more.&nbsp;It&rsquo;d be great for the company to recognise this shortcoming. Perhaps you could get 5 GB for every active device you own rather than just the first, or storage space could exempt back-ups. But then leaving money on the table isn&rsquo;t very Apple either.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/apple/ios-8/review" target="_blank">iOS 8 review</a></strong></p> <p><iframe frameborder="0" height="180" src="http://pages.haymarket.com/stuff_signup/enews_embed" width="300"></iframe></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="iCloud" alt="iCloud" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/icloud-drive_0.jpg?1411438866" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/apple/apple-s-lower-icloud-prices-still-aren-t-good-enough/feature#comments Apple iCloud Fri, 19 Sep 2014 15:49:23 +0000 Craig Grannell 1447720 at http://www.stuff.tv Apple's iCloud just got cheaper http://www.stuff.tv/cloud-drive/apples-icloud-just-got-cheaper/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> In the battle for cheaper Cloud offerings, iCloud doesn’t want to get left behind </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="567" height="425" title="Apple&#039;s iCloud just got cheaper " alt="Apple&#039;s iCloud just got cheaper " src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/ic.jpg.jpg?1410362183" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>While Apple was busily launching the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/apple-iphone-6/review" target="_blank">iPhone 6</a>, <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/apple-iphone-6l/review" target="_blank">iPhone 6 Plus</a> and <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/apple-iwatch/review" target="_blank">Apple Watch</a>, it did some tinkering to its cloud offering, too.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/hafizahosman" title="View user profile.">Hafizah Osman</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Cloud wars </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>&pound;2.99 a month or &pound;35.88 per year will get you 200GB of storage space, &pound;6.99 per month gives you 500GB, while its top-tier storage, 1TB, will cost you &pound;14.99 a month.</p> <p>Although it&#39;s a change for the better, there are some very competitive offerings from other Cloud service providers.</p> <p>Here&rsquo;s why &ndash; for one, Apple&rsquo;s free storage plan sits at only 5GB and when you compare it with what other players have to offer, Google and Microsoft is way more charitable with its 15GB gratis <a href="https://blog.onedrive.com/new-onedrive-storage-plans/" target="_blank">OneDrive</a> offering.</p> <p>And if you compare prices, Google charges US$10 (&pound;6.20) monthly for 1TB&nbsp;&ndash;&nbsp;cheaper than Apple&rsquo;s &pound;14.99&nbsp;&ndash;&nbsp;and also has a mid-range 100GB option which Apple lacks.

With Apple reportedly set to unveil a mobile payments platform alongside the iPhone 6 next week, it&rsquo;s certainly not a great time for the company to be associated with such a high-profile security issue.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2014/09/02Apple-Media-Advisory.html">Apple</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/apple/iphone-6-will-have-nfc-and-mobile-payment-feature-says-report/news">iPhone 6 will have NFC and mobile payment feature, says report</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Radiohead’s PolyFauna app refreshed with new music </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Back in February, Radiohead released PolyFauna, a suitably trippy and weird exploratory game/app for <a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/polyfauna/id793263070?mt=8">iOS</a> and <a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.radiohead.polyfauna&amp;hl=en">Android</a> that featured music from the band&rsquo;s last album, The King of Limbs.
