Apple again reminds former MobileMe customers their free 20GB storage is soon at an end

Apple again reminds former MobileMe customers their free 20GB storage is soon at an end

When MobileMe closed its doors and we moved to iCloud, Apple rewarded paying customers 20GB of free storage for a limited time. That limited time is soon up as of September 30, and Apple is again sending out notes reminding on this fact, according to 9to5Mac:

As a thank you for being a former MobileMe member, you received a complimentary 20GB storage upgrade when you moved to iCloud. Your storage upgrade expires on September 30, 2013.

Further still, Apple reminds that should you be over the 5GB of free storage iCloud offers when the deal expires, iCloud Backup, Documents in the Cloud and iCloud Mail will stop working until you're under 5GB or purchase a sufficiently large paid iCloud storage plan.

So, if you're affected, you've got a week to get sorted. On top of your free 5GB, 10GB costs $20 per year, 20GB is $40 per year and the top tier of 50GB is $100 per year. For more information, head over to the Apple Support link below.

Apple did former customers, like me, well by offering the extras.
But I still quietly wail at the loss of iWeb. While the old version still works, I daydream of a new iweb, sitting alongside my other aps, and also a version sitting alongside iwork in the cloud.
But I am a geezer, I notice these days I mourn the passing of a lot.

I still can't believe Apple isn't simply giving more storage away than competitors after we buy their phones and computers. But then again, seeing their track record, I'm really glad I use third party online storage sites.

While I don't expect us legacy .Mac and MobileMe users to get extra storage forever, I agree with others who have previous posted that Apple should give each iCloud account 5GB + 1 GB per registered iDevice. I've had to put my iPhone and iPad on different accounts to stay under the limit and it's just annoying given how many other things are tied to the "primary" iCloud account. But oh well I guess.
