iCloud Documents and data are finally part of the iCloud Drive

Introduced in 2014, iCloud Documents and Data was a system that automatically synchronized data from a variety of applications and made it available on a wide range of devices. Now Apple has announced that this service has been discontinued and is now part of iCloud Drive.

On the support page (via MacRumors), the company explains that iCloud documents and data no longer exist:

iCloud Documents and Data, our legacy document synchronization service, has been discontinued and replaced by iCloud Drive. If you used iCloud documents and data, your account has been migrated to iCloud Drive.

Apple previously announced that it would discontinue the service, and now iCloud Drive is the place for all your documents and data.

As the company explains, “iCloud Drive allows you to easily store, access and share files with friends and family. The documents you store on iCloud Drive stay updated on all your devices, and you can access them from your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac or PC. ”

This change comes just a month before Apple launches WWDC 2022. Although the company has announced several new features during the iOS 15 cycle, Apple could prepare even more iCloud news.

One thing users wouldn’t mind if Apple announced a slightly better free plan as the company only offers 5GB of cloud storage at no cost. In addition, there is a huge gap between the plans of 50 GB, 200 GB and 1 TB. Can Apple make it cheaper or offer more options in between.
