Cómo usar iCloud sin un dispositivo de Apple y qué puedes hacer desde tu navegador
It seems that the apple company wants to encourage the purchase of additional storage in iCloud. That’s why Apple is now offering free one-month trials of iCloud 50GB, 200GB and 2TB storage plans to customers who are currently using 5GB and have reached their limit.
According to Apple Insider, the free trial option appears when a user tries to back up their iOS device to iCloud, but does not have enough space to do so . The pop-up message promotes an increase in storage capacity to 50GB, but the free trial option also applies to the 200GB and 2TB levels.
“You don’t have enough space in iCloud to back up your iPhone. A 50GB plan gives you plenty of room to continue backing up your iPhone. Your first month is free, and after that you only [have to pay] $0.99 each month” , reads the message. Much of this space is dedicated to storing photos and backups in the Apple cloud.
As with services such as Apple Music, which users can also try for free for one month, the selected storage plan will automatically renew at your regular monthly rate , once the trial period is over. Users can choose to suspend services at any time to avoid credit card charges.
These free trials are in addition to the ones that some Apple Music users who dropped out have been receiving
According to Apple Insider, for now it seems that the promotion is limited to owners of Apple devices that have not yet been upgraded to a higher level of iCloud , as the announced trial version is not available to current subscribers.
In March, Apple announced that student Apple IDs managed by educational institutions would be given 200GB free of charge. Following this move, Apple may announce changes to free iCloud storage during the upcoming WWDC, as it has become a bottleneck for users in recent years.
