The company might have finally figured out how to make use of cloud storage

Apple has been a company that hasn’t quite been able to get the hang of cloud systems and how they can be applied to their products. They have used iCloud already, but syncing data hasn’t been enough to convince customers that they are worth considering as a cloud company. That might be changing now as they introduce iCloud Drive with the new OS X, Yosemite.

iCloud Drive is going to be included with OS X Yosemite and iOS 8, but it will also be able to function with Windows devices using the web browser. The system is going to work as a part of Finder, allowing you to view files that are stored in iCloud just as though they are parts of locally stored files. Mail attachments are automatically synced with it as well, in a feature called Mail Drop, along with any photos that are taken on an iDevice.

The pricing is going to be very competitive as well. 200 GB of storage will be just $3.99 a month, compared to $19.99 for Dropbox. Up to 5GB is going to be free, with options up to 1TB if you are a huge file backup nut. For reference, Google Drive currently charges $9.99 for a Terabyte, although the price for iCloud Drive hasn’t been announced at that level.

This is possibly one of the most exciting announcements from WWDC, so check back to find out when it will be announced and how it will work in greater depth.
