Apple Offers One Free Month Of iCloud Storage

Published

This is a common problem for iOS users: you’re backing up your phone’s pictures, when suddenly, that dreaded pop-up message appears: “You do not have enough space in iCloud to back up your iPhone.”Apple Offers One Free Month Of iCloud Storage 1
But don’t worry, Apple is here to help. It’s offering a free month of iCloud storage to customers who have run out of room on their paltry free 5GB plan, as noted byAppleInsider. And by “help,” I mean “shamelessly trying to trick you into paying more money for storage, thus boosting Apple’s services revenue and improving its quarterly earnings numbers.”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. But what’s offensive is how Apple treats cloud storage as a whole. It only needs to offer this trial because it  doesn’t offer enough storage to consumers to begin with.It’s no secret that the 5GB of free storage that Apple offers on iCloud — an amount that has gone unchanged since its introduction in 2011 — is laughably small. And it’s an especially egregious issue since that same 5GB is for all your cloud storage on Apple, from backups to application data to photos. Take too many pictures of that cute dog at the park, and suddenly your phone will stop backing up unless you shell out more cash to Apple.Competitors like Google offer photo storage for free. So, at the bare minimum, it should be reasonable for a company that sells $1,000 smartphones to offer some kind of cloud backup for basic OS-level things like the apps you have installed and the messages you’ve sent. Sure, Apple gets the chance to make some extra money, but it comes at the expense of a vastly worse user experience for its customers. Basically, you have to decide between the constant micromanaging of what amounts to less storage than an iPod Nano from 2006 or risk losing all your files when your phone falls into a pool.A free month of storage is a good start, but Apple needs to seriously consider making backups better for its users — regardless of cost.

Apple Offers One Free Month Of iCloud Storage 14

Huawei’s P Smart line already has its 2020 member planned. The phone has recently been certified with 3 cameras by TENAA and now some renders have come up which show us the possible look of the phone. Images also include the MatePad Pro tablet.

Regarding the design, it seems that P Smart 2020 will not present anything new. We still have the droplet notch, a glossy back cover, and the triple chamber configuration. Specifications will be a slight upgrade from 2019.

  • Kirin 810 Processor
  • 4 GB RAM
  • 128 GB internal storage
  • 48 MP + 8 MP + 2 MP Main Camera
  • 16MP front camera
  • 3,900 mAh battery

In addition to memory upgrades, P Smart is expected to bring improved cameras and the inclusion of an ultra-wide lens finally. If Huawei wants to avenge this mobile phone in the Portuguese market, it will have to compete with Samsung’s A line, which features very interesting equipment.

MatePad Pro is a pseudo rival to the iPad

The MatePad Pro, also known as MediaPad M7, will be the brand’s next tablet. The tablet has varied colors, bringing some variety to the tablet market, which usually features equipment in black, blue and silver.

We also have a rear dual camera and a “hole” design on the screen, where is the front camera. The tablet comes with a USB-C port, biometric reader under the glass and a pen holder and keyboard case.

However, this tablet will have the same problem as the rest of the market: the operating system. Although versatile Android is a limited system when it comes to productivity. The same cannot be said of the iPad which with the new iOS 13 represents a true piece of work technology.

As long as Android stays as it is, tablets will remain big phones. Huawei does not seem to include major applications or operating system changes to make its tablets more attractive, as Samsung, for example.
