25 GB Storage on iCloud for MobileMe Users

iPhone maker Apple is offering 25 GB of storage to MobileMe customers who will be migrating to the newer iCloud storage and streaming service.

Ever since Apple had announced iCloud, many were wondering about the fate of MobileMe customers who have already paid $100 for a year’s subscription.

According to 9to5 Mac, MobileMe customers will get to keep the 20GB storage they paid for and will also get additional 5GB storage which is available to all iCloud users.

However, MobileMe users will be able to use the 25GB for storing documents, music, photos and other files on iCloud only till June 30, 2012, after which, MobileMe will seize to exist and these customers will have to pay $40 to renew their 20 GB storage space.

Apple released the platform to developers last week and also revealed the pricing plans. The company is charging $20 per year for 10GB, $40 per year for 20GB and $100 per year for 50GB of storage on iCloud.

The service will allow users to store their documents, calendar, notes, music, photos and videos on the cloud and access them from any device from the iCloud service.

One of the users has noted, though, that the users with family accounts on MobileMe won't be receiving the 25 GB storage space.
