Apple, having just launched its cloud computing service for developers, has now announced pricing for the service. All iCloud users will start off with 5GB of free storage. From there, they can add 10GB at a cost of $20 per year, 20GB for $40/year, and finally 50GB for $100/year. It should be noted that iTunes music, apps, books and Photo Stream do not count against the initial 5GB. Upon its official launch in the fall, the common end user will be able to sync his or her various Apple devices while enjoying the security of automatic backup. Apple expects most of those everyday users will find 5GB of storage to be adequate.
