There can be no doubt that Apple is actively trying to push their customers towards iCloud, and are throwing as many bones as possible to MobileMe users to help them make the transition. In their latest move, Apple has now increased the deadline for MobileMe users to claim 20GB of free iCloud storage to September 30th.
MobileMe members with 20GB of purchased storage receive a complimentary iCloud storage upgrade of 20GB, and accounts with additional purchased storage (40GB to 60GB) receive a complimentary upgrade of 50GB after moving to iCloud. These free upgrades are good through September 30th, 2012. After that date, you can continue the upgrade at the regular price or let it expire and use the free 5GB plan.
Apple initially offered to give 20Gb of free iCloud storage to MobileMe customers who migrated before June 30th, essentially giving users an extra 3 months to claim their free iCloud storage. This follows Apple’s previous offer to send a free copy of Snow Leopard to MobileMe users to encourage them to upgrade from Leopard to OS X Lion.
Even though Apple’s attempting to make the switch to iCloud as appealing as possible (and even though MobileMe will be discontinued on June 30th), many still hesitate to migrate. What about you? Have you made the switch to iCloud?
