Apple Launches iCloud Beta

Submitted by on August 2, 2011 – 8:38 am3 Comments

Apple‘s long awaited, much anticipated iCloud service has launched in Beta form, and is available to all of you tech savvy Internet users with an Apple ID. In essence, iCould lets you access all of your essentials including mail, contacts, calendar, find my iPhone, and iWork via the Web-based platform. Apple has also rolled out the price plan for iCloud, and it may set you back a little. The first 5GB of storage are yours absolutely free, but once you exceed this amount, and you will on music alone, you’ll pay $10 for 10GB, $40 for 20GB, and $100 for 50GB. Apple’s cloud-based service is the latest to join others like Amazon already offering cloud computing, and the pricing structure may be enough to turn some people off. Since the service is still in Beta testing the jury is still out, but you can rest assured Apple’s devoted fan base will soon adopt the system as they do with anything Apple. If you’ve got an Apple ID and the inclination to test it out head on over to here, and let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
