Apple Adds New 2TB iCloud Storage Tier for R299.99 Per Month

Apple quietly added a new iCloud storage tier, offering customers 2TB of data storage space at a price of R299.99 per month in South Africa. Apple now offers four iCloud storage tiers at prices that start at R14.99.

The new 2TB iCloud storage option comes just over a week ahead of the company’s September 7 event, where versions of the iPhone 7 and Apple Watch are expected to debut alongside new operating system updates.

Perhaps the biggest reason for the jump in iCloud space is a new desktop syncing feature coming to macOS Sierra. In the new operating system, all files stored on the desktop or in the Documents folder of a Mac are automatically uploaded to iCloud to make them available across a wide range of devices.

A comparison of the US iCloud storage pricing and the South Africa iCloud options reveals that about is working on an conversion rate of $1 = R15. At the time of writing this article the exchange rate is $1 = R14.42

Capacity US South Africa Conversion Rate
50GB $0.99 R14.99 $1 = R15.14
200GB $2.99 R44.99 $1 = R15.05
1TB $9.99 R149.99 $1 = R15.01
2TB $19.99 R299.99 $1 = R15.01

If the South Africa Rand loses any more value we could see these prices increase in the next few weeks.
