Apple offers 30-day free iCloud storage to Greek customers

Greeks have been unable to make any transactions with countries abroad,

Due to rigid capital controls and restrictions on the country's beleaguered banking system Greek businesses and individual have been unable to pay for their cross-border services, including services like the iCloud from Apple.

To help its Greek customers ride out the country's financial crisis, Apple has offered its customers in Greece, one month's free access to the extra storage space on iCloud that they may have subscribed to.

Many Greek subscribers who had already paid  to enhance their iCloud storage and have been unable to pay their monthly fees.

However, Apple has moved in to help them retain their files and archives stored on iCloud. It sent its iPhone customers in the country the following message:

''Dear iCloud customer,

To prevent interruption in your iCloud service during the current fiscal crisis, and to make sure you have access to your content, we've extended your iCloud storage plan for an extra 30 days at no additional cost.

We won't attempt to charge you for your plan until 30 days after your original renewal date. If we are unable to renew your plan, you may need to reduce the amount of iCloud storage you use.

The iCloud Team''
