Apple has announced brand new iCloud plans along with cheaper pricing, more storage all of which are available right now for you to upgrade.
iCloud is a service available to Mac, iPhone & iPad which allows you to store things like documents, photos, app data, notes all which are automatically updated across your devices. Say you’re working on a document on your iPhone – It will show up on your iPad and Mac. You take a photo from your iPhone – it’s on your iPad and Mac all automatically.
It also allows you to backup your iPhone or iPad, in the event you upgrade or lose your device simply restore when you purchase a new one. For more on iCloud I highly recommend you look at the iCloud Apple website.

iCloud now comes in 5GB, 20GB, 200GB, 500gB and 1000GB (1 TB) plans. In comparison previous iCloud plans would top at 50GB so this is a massive storage upgrade, all of which can be done from your device.
