No one would disagree that MobileMe wasn’t Apple’s finest hour. Hell, Steve Jobs even admitted as much when he introduced iCloud. Thus far, the transition to iCloud has seemingly gone smoothly, and you might remember that as part of the transition, Apple as a gesture of good will gave former MobileMe subscribers an additional 20GB of storage, on top of the free 5GB that comes standard.
That additional storage was supposed to expire at the end of September 2012, but Apple has recently sent out messages to affected users and notifying them that their additional free storage has now been extended to last until September 30, 2013.
In an email obtained by 9to5Mac, Apple writes to former MobileMe users:
When you moved your MobileMe account to iCloud, we provided you with a complimentary storage upgrade beyond the standard 5GB that comes with an iCloud account to help you with the transition. Originally, this storage upgrade was set to expire on September 30, 2012.
As a thank you to our former MobileMe members, we will continue to provide you with this complimentary storage upgrade at no charge, for an additional year, until September 30, 2013. No action is required on your part. For complete details, please read this article.
Thanks iCloud Team.
