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!

Should you get an iPhone 6 or Android, BlackBerry, or Windows Phone?

2014 iPhone buyers guide: How to choose between the iPhone and other phones, including Samsung Galaxy, HTC One, Moto X, Nexus, Nokia Lumia, BlackBerry, and more!

Apple has released the brand new, top-of-the-line, flagship iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. But is either of them the right phone for you? While everyone here at iMore certainly believes the iPhone is absolutely the best phone for most people, most of the time, we're lucky that every major platform now has one or more great phones for us to choose from as well. The iPhone may have the best overall user experience, the highest quality apps and games, the widest range of services, the biggest selection of accessories, and the best customer support, but there are also things the iPhone doesn't offer that other phones do, like physical keyboards, high power cameras, digitizers, or simply no Apple logo anywhere near them. So, how do you know the iPhone is for you?
