Old MobileMe users to finally lose their free iCloud storage September 30th

The users of the now defunct MobileMe service from Apple were surprised 10 months ago when the company decided to give them an extra year of free iCloud storage. Unfortunately, it would appear that Apple won't be giving out any more iCloud space freebies to the former subscribers of MobileMe, which shut down in June 2012.

CultofMac is reporting that those MobileMe members are now getting friendly emails from Apple, stating that the free iCloud storage amounts will definitely end on September 30th. The storage space varied from 10, 20  to 50 GB, depending on how much those former MobileMe customers were paying for the service before Apple shut it down.

Apple had previously extended the free storage deadline from June 30th, 2012 to September 30th, 2012 and then again to September 30th, 2013. It's safe to say that the company has been quite generous in giving its paid MobileMe subscribers lots of free time and space on iCloud.

After September 30th, those MobileMe users will find their iCloud storage will be reduced down to the regular 5 GB of free space, unless they choose to pay for extra storage amounts. Apple's email states, "If you exceed your storage plan on September 30, 2013, iCloud Backup, Documents in the Cloud, and iCloud Mail will temporarily stop working."
