Apple does not really offer any free trials for its iCloud services, but it appears that a rare campaign is being offered during this year's new iPhone models. New and existing iPhone users can get two months of iCloud's 200GB of storage space for free, which is a large amount of space, but not too much time. The campaign is only available in the United States, as it requires users to subscribe to one of the four major carriers (Verizon, AT & T, T-Mobile and Sprint).
The offer is now available to all iPhone users that I do not already pay for iCloud storage. Apple does not mention how long the campaign will be around beyond a limited time, and when the free two-month window is over, users will be charged $ 2.99 per month if they do not interrupt.
It seems that Apple is running the campaign around the debut for the new iPhone when many people upgrade to the latest model, as it uses the language that they can be ready "when the new iPhone comes." 200GB is more than enough space for users to back up device data and migrate to the new iPhone. It also serves as a way to bring in paying users to Apple's subscription services.
However, it is worth noting that this promotion is not much of an upgrade to the existing offer for new iCloud subscribers. Users can already get a free month when they sign up for 50GB, 200GB and 2TB storage levels. The extra month is a nice bonus, especially for users who are interested in trying iCloud as storage service, but it is not necessary just to upgrade to a new iPhone.
