    Default Apple Employees Can Now Get 50GB of iCloud Storage for Free


    Apple employees are now getting a new benefit from working with the company – 50GB of free iCloud storage. iCloud is Apple’s own ‘in the cloud’ data storage service that works across iOS devices and personal computers, whether Mac or Windows. It stores things such as iOS backups, photos, documents, and much more and synchronizes them across all of the devices. It even allows us to find our devices if they are misplaced or stolen.

    On top of the already free 5GB of storage that comes with every Apple ID, the additional 50GB puts the employee at a free 55GB of storage in total. The cost for normal users to get this same storage is a hefty $100 per year.

    In January, ModMyi reported on an Apple employee discount on Mac computers and iPads. For certain Mac computers, an employee could get $500 off and for iPads, an employee could get $250 off. The opportunity could only be exercised every three years and the employee must have been working in their position for at least three months.

    iCloud storage is certainly less rewarding than money off of new devices, however it’s a kind gesture to employees. The free storage bonus can be used for any of the employees' personal uses and devices attached to their Apple IDs. Unlike the device price discounts, there does not appear to be any prerequisites for getting the free iCloud storage bonus.

    They need to give that to their developers as well. We already pay $99 a year for developer status

    I have a question about iCloud. what can you store on it? I know you can back up data but what about uploading other things to it and then being able to access it from your device.

    Q. Can you upload an .IPA then when you want to install the app WITHOUT iTunes or the App Store?

    Q. Can you upload photos, then add photos to you device without having to first sync ALL your data just because you wanted to add one picture?

    Q. Can you add files that aren't even supported by iOS devices? AND still access them to use on your device with 3rd party software if iOS can support that file?

    Q. can you share files from iCloud to another device--even one that does not have iCloud or any other type of cloud storage on it?

    Q. can 3rd party apps access your iCloud account?
