For Apple users who are looking to expand their Web storage, the company has unveiled its pricing for the iCloud in a beta launch of the service for developers.
Users will be able to purchase 10GB for $20 per year, 20GB for $40 per year and 50GB for $100 per year, in addition to the 5GB of free storage customers will be given when they subscribe to the service. However, purchased music, apps, iBooks and photos don’t count toward a user’s free quota.
It appears the look of the iCloud apps mimic the redesign of the core programs for Lion, Apple’s latest operating system. The beta service, which is no longer available, featured Web apps for Mail, Calendar and Contacts, while sporting an iOS-style navigation menu. Screenshots posted by 9 to 5 Mac show storage and syncing capabilities for Pages, Numbers and Keynote on the Web service.
In June Apple CEO Steve Jobs stated that iPads and iPhones would be set up and backed sans computer. Now according to the company’s website iCloud will be released to the public this fall.
