Email Reveals New Details About iCloud Storage
An email sent to a MacRumors by a reader reveals Apple's solution to users who near the 5GB of storage all iCloud users are granted.
The email, which was sent to MR reader Ben when his usage reached 4.2GB, alerts users that their allotted space is being filled up and outlines a few solutions. Users can either remove data from the cloud, or are informed they can purchase additional storage directly from their iOS device, Mac, or PC.
Thankfully users' iTunes media files do not count against their storage total. However, when a user's capacity has been reached iOS devices will no longer back up data to iCloud and any emails sent to their me.com address wont be delivered. Unfortunately no pricing details were outlined in the email.
Having emails count against your total storage quota is kind of unfortunate, but with additional space so easily purchased, worrying about uploading large media files, and having everything backed up across multiple computers without fail wont be of too much worry.
