        The service is free for anyone with a Google account.

        iPhone backup will count against the 15GB free space offered by a Google Account

        ..if you have an iPhone, we’re introducing a new iOS app that lets you store photos, videos, contacts, and calendar events with Google. Start backing up your phone with the Google One app, and save the stuff you care about using the free 15 GB of storage that comes with your Google Account. If you break, lose, or upgrade your phone, you can rest easy knowing that your data is safe in the cloud.

        IMO that’s out of the frying pan, into the fire..
        Anything free from google is at a cost, no matter how good it looks on the surface.
        I would stick with apple, even if it does cost money for more space.

          The big question – Is Google to dump Google Drive, Google Photos (unlimited storage) …?

          I backup all my photos to Google photos. Quality is good, storage is unlimited, price is just right 🙂

          Yes. And no. This thread caught my attention because iTunes mediocre reliability in synching my phone with its usual Windows 10 box has broken. So now I’m hunting alternatives to iTunes and Apple to back up and sync everything on my phone.

        Is this needed for paid G Suite for Business users?

        Confirmed this is only for consumers, not G Suite Business users.
