MobileMe Users Get Extended 20GB Free iCloud
- Free 1 year extension
- To help MobileMe transition
- 20GB of free storage
Apple has extended its free 20GB of iCloud storage for another year to help with the transition from the now defunct MobileMe service.
Apple initially announced that the additional 20GB of storage would expire on 30 June. The company then pushed the date back another few months to 30 September.
"When you moved your MobileMe account to iCloud, we provided you with a complimentary storage upgrade beyond the standard 5GB that comes with an iCloud account to help you with the transition," said Apple. "Originally, this storage upgrade was set to expire on 30 September 2012."
"As a thank you to our former MobileMe customers, we will continue to provide you with this complimentary storage upgrade at no charge, for an additional year, until 30 September 2013. No action is required on your part.”
There was also a glitch on Apple’s initial email, which gave some users a massive 38 years of free space. This problem has now been corrected.
