iCloud 2TB plan becomes 50% cheaper, replaces 1TB option

iCloud 2TB plan becomes 50% cheaper, replaces 1TB option

Apple's cloud storage service, aptly named iCloud, has gone through some changes in the past 24 hours. The company has decided to discontinue the 1TB plan, but this actually isn't bad news at all. For the same $9.99 per month that you'd have to pay to get 1TB of storage up until this point, you'll now receive 2TB instead.
The 2TB plan used to cost $19.99, so this means great savings for those who've already been using it. And for people who used to have the 1TB option, another TB is available for the same price.

iCloud's free storage remains pretty limited at 5GB, and the other paid tiers are 50GB for $0.99 per month and 200GB for $2.99 a month.
The service's competitors don't offer better deals necessarily, at least on the high end of the storage spectrum. Google charges $9.99 for a 1TB Drive, and the same goes for Dropbox. Microsoft's OneDrive is cheaper, only asking $6.99 for 1TB, but if you're after the most cloud storage space you can get at a decent price - you'll probably choose iCloud's newly half-price 2TB plan.

WhatsApp to get PiP video calls
WhatsApp beta version 2.17.265 for Android comes with a new feature, one that is enabled by default for those devices that are running the Android O Developer Preview. The feature would let you minimize the video call window into a smaller window so you can keep your video conversation going while answering another WhatsApp conversation.
We’re not sure if the small window with the video chat is a floating window that can be dragged around, nor do we know if the video conference would continue even after minimizing WhatsApp. If so, this would be one of the first video calling apps to allow this type of multi-tasking on a smartphone platform. Are you an avid WhatsApp user who would love the idea of a pop-out video calling feature?
