iCloud vs IDrive is a question you may be pondering. What are these services exactly? Well, Apple has an in-house cloud storage solution that it makes available to all users of its hardware products – iCloud. While it’s not the product for creative professionals in terms of affordability or features, iCloud sells simply because of how flawlessly it integrates with other Apple products. 

IDrive, on the other hand, is an independent cloud storage offering marked by stellar features and great affordability. It comes with file versioning and file retention. It’s also a lot cheaper than iCloud, with more storage space offered per dollar spent. We currently recommend IDrive as the best cloud storage provider in 2022 in our best cloud storage roundup.
