IDrive Now To Give iPhone Users 100GB of Cloud Storage at Just $1 per Year
Now iPhone users have been brought on board to the IDrive’s ridiculously cheap cloud storage offer. On April 9, 2014 IDrive made an insanely surprising announcement, offering Android users in need of more cloud storage a 100GB cloud storage option at just $0.99 annually. This offer initially availed only to Android users entailed a 50GB backup and 50GB sync option, coming to 100GB of cloud storage space at just $0.99 per year.
This Wednesday (April 23, 2014) IDrive extended the same insanely generous offer to iOS users. IDrive announced that it will now also give iOS users the same 50GB of backup storage space and 50GB for syncing at a price tag of $0.99 per year. iPhone users will have to download the IDrive iOS app and enjoy the following services:
- Users can back up their phone’s data: calendar, contacts, videos, photos and files.
- Users can easily sync files across all of their devices.
- Once users’ files are synced successfully, users can access those files from other devices by using their iPad or iPhones.
- The app allows users to share folders and files with anyone.
- The IDrive app comes with a number of extra security features which includes the 256-bit AES encryptions, an optional private key encryption which only gives the right user access to his/her own data and finally a pass code protection which the user can use to lock up the app from any prying eyes.
- The IDrive app allows users to unlink any of their devices that are lost or stolen.
For iPhone users to enjoy this 100GB at $1 per year package from IDrive, they must sign up for it from the IDrive iOS app. The IDrive iOS app is available for download free of charge from the App Store. Users activate the 100GB cloud storage upon the $0.99 in-app purchase. The IDrive iOS app works with iOS 6.0 and later version.
In all fairness, this deal is much better compared to Apple’s own cloud storage package. Apple sells 50GB iCloud storage at a whopping $100 per year, with an additional 10GB upgrade costing users another $20 on top annually.
