iCloud pricing revealed, first look at iCloud apps

The pricing for Apple’s iCloud service has been revealed by the select few that have access to the online music streaming service.

According to a Gigaom report, iOS 5 and Mac OS X Lion users will get 5GB of cloud storage free of charge, as the firm had previously announced. 15GB of storage will cost the user $20 per year, no European pricing is yet known.

25GB will be available for $40 a year and the top shelf 55GB iCloud storage plan will reportedly set you back $100 per year. iCloud wont be available officially until the launch of iOS 5 later this year.

Gigaom’s Darrell Etherington gained early access to iCloud and said: "Apple’s decision to go for a unified look and feel between the web-based iCloud presence, Mac apps and iOS software is a great idea for encouraging adoption of cloud services among users new to the concept."

Gigaom also published a video of the beta iCloud applications.
