Apple has increased the price of iCloud storage in the United Kingdom and some other geographic regions. The increase is likely due to recent changes in foreign currency exchange rates.
The monthly price of iCloud storage has increased by about 25% for UK Apple customers. Similar rises have also been implemented in a handful of other countries around the world.
While iCloud+ offers multiple features in addition to cloud storage, mostly the multiple tiers and their prices are generally tied to the amount of storage for users to backup their photos, documents, and other files in the cloud.
Apple’s free tier allots a minuscule 5GB of cloud storage to each Apple ID. That amount has remained unchanged since iCloud was first introduced all the way back in 2011. iCloud+ users can pay an additional fee and those plans are currently available in three tiers: 50 GB, 200 GB, and 2 TB.
In the UK, Apple charged £0.79/mo for 50 GB, £2.49/mo for 200 GB, and £6.99/mo for 2 TB respectively. These prices have increased to £0.99/mo, £2.99/mo, and £8.99/mo.
As noted by 9to5Mac, similar price increases have been seen in Poland, Romania, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Sweden, Tanzania, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates.
