MobileMe Users to Get 25GB of Storage Till June 2012

iCloud Storage

From the day iCloud was announced by Apple, on June 6th during their World Wide Developer Conference, developers have been excited about the new iCloud. At the same time, they have also been worried thinking about what will happen to the 20 GB of storage space they paid for their MobileMe account once iCloud will go live, and they stop using their MobileMe account. MobileMe service will stop functioning from June, next year.

Finally, Apple has given these developers a reason to heave a sigh of relief. Apple has announced MobileMe users can take with them the 20 GB MobileMe storage space to their iCloud accounts. It should also be noted that iCloud already offers 5 GB of storage space as base to all account holders. This means that existing MobileMe users migrating to iCloud services will have a total of 25 GB of storage space. Normally, the 20 GB storage would have cost $40 per year.

Users will be able to use the additional 20 GB of storage space for ‘free’ (It is not exactly free considering that users have already paid for it) until June 30th of next year. After the 30th of June, users will be automatically billed for the 20 GB. That will be the same $40 per year. June 30 will be the day MobileMe will go offline. By June next year, almost all developers will have used up the 20 GB storage and most will not think of opting out of the 20 GB storage.

Apple has also made the migration of accounts from MobileMe to iCloud convenient and seamless through me.com/move. No one is complaining about anything till now and are unlikely to do so in the future. Apple has surely managed the transition well.
