    Default Apple Extends Free iCloud Storage for MobileMe Converts Through September


    Apple has decided to extend its offer of free storage to MobileMe customer’s grandfathered into iCloud through September 30, 2012.

    Last year Apple offered current MobileMe subscribers an additional 20GB of cloud storage on top of their current storage as an incentive to switch over from the MobileMe service which ends June 30, 2012. Apple recently updated their MobileMe FAQ section to reflect the policy change.

    "MobileMe members with 20GB of purchased storage receive a complimentary iCloud storage upgrade of 20GB, and accounts with additional purchased storage (40GB to 60GB) receive a complimentary upgrade of 50GB after moving to iCloud. These free upgrades are good through September 30th, 2012.” — Apple
    After September, Apple will give former MobileME customers the option to pay for the additional storage or downgrade to the free 5GB iCloud plan. It isn’t clear when Apple enacted the new policy, but the FAQ wasn’t changed in a Google cache of the page dated April 30.

    The extended grace period for converting MobileMe customers fits in with Apple Chief Financial Officer Peter Oppenheimer’s words regarding iCloud last month.

    "Our real desire here was not about selling more storage… We just really wanted to increase the customer delight.” — Oppenheimer

    Thats mad. Most people I know (including me) cleared out our additional storage, and made other arrangements, knowing it was coming to an end in June.... NOW they say we get more time? PFFFT!

    Apple is simply doing this because they know dropbox is giving a run for their creativeness
