I scream, you scream, we all scream for iCloud. Well, it’s not coming to us quite yet but starting today it’ll be available to developers, which means it might not be too long before it’s officially released. Meanwhile, we’ve got the whole pricing scheme to dig into while we wait.

Apple will give iCloud users five gigabytes free to start off with, but every level of storage after comes with a price, unsurprisingly. There’s a whole range of options, all the way to 50GB: Adding 10GB costs $20 per year, adding 20GB costs $40 per year and adding 50GB costs $100 per year.

Users will be able to purchase the extra space through iOS 5’s settings, too, which will be available whenever the iPhone 5 comes out. As 9to5Mac points out, Photo Stream images thankfully don’t count against your storage space. And don’t forget: No matter what, you still have 5GB to fill with your Hanson and Dixie Chicks collections. Don’t worry. We won’t tell.
