Apple starts selling lower-cost iCloud storage, adds iCloud Drive to beta website

Gregg Keizer | Sept. 12, 2014
Apple on Wednesday flipped the switch on its new iCloud storage plan prices, and added iCloud Drive to a beta version of the icloud.com website.

"Apple doesn't make hardware to be successful in [say] messaging [apps]; it makes a messaging product to be successful in hardware," said Jan Dawson, chief analyst at Jackdaw Research, in a June interview after Apple unveiled iCloud Drive. "Apple isn't fighting the messaging [or cloud] war. To the extent it's fighting a war at all, it's fighting an ecosystem war, and so far it's winning."

iCloud Drive requires iOS 8 — which will ship next week — or OS X Yosemite, likely to release Oct. 22. The beta of icloud.com with iCloud Drive can be accessed via a browser, even from, say, OS X Mavericks.
