Apple’s hollow iCloud offer

You don’t need me to explain how obvious this ploy is. Much like any free trial, Apple is hoping that you’ll sign up, and either forget to cancel or enjoy the extra space so much that you’ll want to continue paying.

Absolutely agree. Apple’s limited free storage remains a big blip in a system that makes it one of the most profitable organisations in the world. It’s derisory.
