Morning Report: Apple Watch Price Rumors, Unlimited Storage from Amazon & iDrive

iDrive unlimited mobile backup

By all accounts, we’ve got at least three more months of Apple Watch rumors to endure, and very likely more than that — but the most recent report is at least practical enough to get a sense of how Apple may be planning to price the wearable device. Our Wednesday Morning Report also has a pair of deals on unlimited storage for your mobile devices, but be sure to read the fine print before diving in.

Apple Watch May Start at 0 for Stainless Steel, K Gold

How much will you be willing to pay for an Apple Watch? Although Apple previously announced the device would start at 0, a new report yesterday from MacRumors suggests the stainless steel model could start at 0 instead, with the gold models falling somewhere north of ,000, but less than ,000.

The estimated pricing comes courtesy of French Apple-centric website iGen.fr (via Google Translate), who reportedly has a good recent track record for such rumors, having accurately pegged the display sizes for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus ahead of their release last month.

There’s also a bit of good news for prospective Apple Watch buyers still holding out hope of giving one for Valentine’s Day next year: The same report claims Apple is still aiming for the annual lover’s holiday, despite recent assurances by Apple Senior Vice President of Retail and Online Stores Angela Ahrendts that the launch would arrive in spring 2015 instead.

Amazon Offers Unlimited Photo Storage for Prime Customers

Amazon eliminated one of the best reasons to buy a Fire Phone on Tuesday with the announcement of free, unlimited cloud photo storage for all Amazon Prime customers. The Prime Photos feature works with existing iOS and Android apps as well as Mac or Windows computers and the e-tailer’s own smartphone and tablet products, allowing access to full-resolution photos from a wide range of devices including gaming consoles, smart TVs and Amazon Fire TV or Fire TV Stick.

There is one catch, however: Video files still count against existing Amazon Cloud Drive storage limitations, although it’s easy enough to flip a switch in the iOS app to prevent such content from being uploaded in the first place.

iDrive Unveils Unlimited Mobile Backup for .99 Per Year

Speaking of unlimited storage for mobile devices, iDrive announced a new deal this week that enables up to five smartphones or tablets to have an endless amount of cloud storage for backup for a mere .99 annually. While that deal may not sound so great for iPhone or iPad shutterbugs in the wake of Amazon’s announcement (above), iDrive goes the extra mile with unlimited storage for videos, contacts, and calendars as well, which are backed up using 256-bit AES encryption.

Additionally, the iDrive mobile app allows automatic upload of new photos and videos, selective sharing of files or folders using a secure link, passcode lock for privacy, and the ability to back up Facebook and Instagram accounts, which can be restored to any linked device. That sounds like a pretty great value to us…
