Matt Brian, writing for The Next Web:
Apple has begun sending last-minute reminders to users currently
enjoying 20 GB of free iCloud storage, warning that from September
30, it will downgrade their accounts unless they take action.
Now that iCloud is up and running and seemingly holding up under demand, Apple needs to start offering more than 5 GB of storage at the free level. That’s not even enough to back up two iOS devices — and Apple certainly doesn’t want to discourage people from buying additional devices or from backing them up to iCloud.
Google started giving away 1 GB of storage in 2004 when Gmail debuted. The bar has long since been raised.
