What iCloud Drive storage plan should you get?

iCloud Drive is revamping the traditional iCloud service we've been using for a few years now. Instead of just being able to house your contacts, calendars, Photo Stream, and backups, iCloud Drive can act as a central repository for lots of different kinds of files. You can then access these files through various different kinds of apps. iCloud Drive can also help take some of the strain off of your physical storage constraints if you need it to. You'll need to pick a monthly subscription plan that dictates how much iCloud Drive storage space you get to share and access on your iPhone, iPad, and Mac or PC.

So which storage plan is right for your needs? Follow along and I'll help you decide!
