You Can Get Up To 4TB Of iCloud Storage With Apple One, Here’s How
Anyone struggling to live with 2TB of iCloud storage can now upgrade to 4TB, so long as they take on an Apple One Premier plan.
The Apple One Premier plan comes with 2TB of storage thrown in but, as noted by 9to5Mac, it’s possible to stack that with an additional 2TB of storage manually. The result, obviously enough, is 4TB of iCloud storage.
Each Apple One plan includes some amount of iCloud storage; the Apple One Individual plan includes 50 GB, the Apple One Family plan includes 200 GB, and the Apple One Premier plan includes 2 TB.
These storage quotas are independent of your normal iCloud plan. So you can subscribe to any of the Apple One tiers and then add on an extra 50 GB, 200 GB, or 2 TB on top via the normal iCloud tier. The prices for the iCloud plans are unchanged if you have Apple One. As a reminder, Apple currently charges $0.99 a month for 50 GB, $2.99 a month for 200 GB, and $9.99 a month for 2 TB.
While 4TB of iCloud storage might sound like a lot, it really isn’t. Or, at least, it won’t be once we’ve all spent a year taking 4K Dolby Vision HDR video with our new iPhones and capturing Apple ProRAW photos.
If your iCloud Photo Library is starting to reach huge numbers of gigabytes, this might be the answer. It’s just a shame it’ll cost an extra $10 on top of the $30 Apple One plan.
