Apple iCloud iOS Syncing / Backup

iCloud for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch (synced from Mac or PC) is designed for iOS 5. Also works on Mac App Store titles with Mac OS X Lion. Apple iCloud syncs iTunes content (music, apps, books), calendars, address book, and documents across multiple devices.

iCloud free, upgrade prices

Pricing:

  • 5GB: free
  • 10GB: $20.00 / year ($1.67 per month)
  • 20GB: $40.00 / year ($3.33 per month)
  • 50GB: $100.00 / year ($8.33 per month)

The free version of iCloud will meet the needs of most people. Why? Photo stream, purchased App Store apps, iTunes music and books do not count toward the storage capacity.

For most users, one main reason to pay is to use iCloud for iTunes match.
