But reality sets in. Here's Apple's pricing strategy:
I'd need the 500 GB plan now (and uploading would take weeks), and would have to upgrade to 1TB in a year or so. 99% of those photos I'd never want to show anyone or manipulate on my iPhone or iPad. And I'd need to have it all backed up anyway, unless I trust that Apple will never, ever change its mind about iCloud storage. However, it might be convenient to be able to get to a photo that I neglected to deliberately load onto my iPhone or iPad.United States (USD)
20 GB: $0.99/month
200 GB: $3.99/month
500 GB: $9.99/month
1 TB: $19.99/month
Note that these costs are in addition to any real hosting plan, where you might have web sites, photo galleries, etc. Apple's prices are three times what I pay for three years of unlimited GB, full-service hosting with unlimited e-mail, galleries, web sites, etc.
