Apple adds 2TB iCloud storage tier ahead of iPhone 7 launch

While the tech world eagerly awaits the launch of Apple’s new smartphone, the iPhone 7, they’ve launched a 2TB iCloud storage option for $20/£14 a month.

Alongside the free 5GB of storage every iCloud user gets by default, the newly introduced 2TB tier joins the existing 50GB, 200GB and 1TB options.

This could imply a change of storage options for the new iPhone — Apple’s iCloud tiers have always been 8x the largest capacity iPhone — so we may well see a 256GB iPhone on the 7th of September. It’s also likely to be preparation for macOS Sierra and its new “Desktop & Documents” feature where you can access desktop files from any device, a feature that’s likely to eat up plenty of storage for power users.
