You can get 200GB of free iCloud storage from Apple, here’s how you can get it
With just weeks before the unveiling of upcoming iPhone 2018 lineup, Apple is reportedly offering free 200GB iCloud storage to iOS users as part of a promotional offer.
According to a thread spotted on Reddit, the free 200GB iCloud storage will be available to users for a period of two months. However, this offer will be valid only for new customers in the U.S., and not for users of iCloud’s premium subscription. Also, this promotional offer will be made exclusively available for new subscribers on four major wireless carriers, AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, and Sprint.
While the new iCloud subscribers will get free storage of 200GB for a period of two months, the plan will automatically renew after the free two-month window expires and users will be charged at $2.99 per month if it is not canceled. According to Apple, the billing will start automatically and if users want a refund, then they should contact Apple within 14 days from the billing date.
By default, Apple offers 5GB of iCloud storage free to all the users. Besides this, the tech giant also offers three paid iCloud tiers: 50GB for $0.99 per month, 200GB for $2.99 per month, and 2TB for $9.99 per month. In fact, the company began offering a free month trial of its storage tiers – 50GB, 200GB, and 2TB to its new subscribers earlier this year.
By offering such promotional plans, Apple is looking to make iPhone owners sign up for its services. Also, the new iCloud offer is a good marketing gimmick by the Cupertino giant to make more users purchase the iPhone 2018 lineup after its release.
Those who aren’t interested in the iCloud subscription, can go to the iCloud Storage screen, tap on Manage Storage, then Change Storage, tap Downgrade Options, and then select the free 5GB plan.
This iCloud 200GB promotional offer is not available to owners of Apple devices in other countries. Also, there is no official announcement from Apple about any such plans, but we can hope it may make an announcement in coming days.
