Apple recently raised the prices of iCloud+ in the United Kingdom and several other geographic regions, citing possible changes in foreign currency exchange rates. This increase primarily affects Apple customers in the United Kingdom, with the monthly price of iCloud+ rising by approximately 25%. Similar price adjustments have also been observed in other countries.
While iCloud+ offers additional features such as Private Relay and HomeKit Secure Video access, the primary focus remains on storage quotas for users to back up their files, documents, and photos in the cloud.
iCloud+ prices see 25% increase in the United Kingdom
Apple has decided to revise the pricing structure for the [remium tier of its storage service in various countries. Previously, UK customers paid £0.79 per month for 50 GB, £2.49 per month for 200 GB, and £6.99 per month for 2 TB. However, these prices have now been increased to £0.99 per month, £2.99 per month, and £8.99 per month, respectively. On average, this represents a hike of approximately 25% across the different tiers.
In addition to the UK, several other regions have also experienced similar price increases. Customers in Poland, Romania, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Sweden, Tanzania, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates have noted corresponding increases in the cost of iCloud+. The precise reasons for these changes have not been explicitly stated, but they are likely connected to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates.
As of now, Apple has not made any official declarations regarding alterations or enhancements to the subscription fees for iCloud+ in the United States, Canada, or India. Nevertheless, the company regularly revises its pricing to account for taxes and fluctuations in foreign exchange rates. Consequently, there is a potential for price adjustments in the future.
While iCloud+ is available as part of the Apple One bundle, the prices for Apple One subscriptions have not been altered at this time. It’s worth mentioning that Apple One, which includes various Apple services like Apple Music, TV+, and iCloud storage, saw a global price increase last fall.
