    Not sure where iCloud falls in terms of subject matter, but hoping to see some major new announcements at WWDC.
    First, Apple needs to get competitive with it's storage offering rates.

    Secondly, hopefully we'll see some upgrades with it's iCloud apps. MS under new leadership, is actually integrating it's Office 365 apps really well. And maybe Apple's okay with that. Perhaps it's resigned to let MS be the default productivity app developer on iOS.

    I think price is quite competitive though.

    The only problem is with Family Sharing Plan... there isn't one.

    I need for example 80 GB, my fiancé 25 GB, and my mom needs 15 GB.
    And even though we can split cost of apps, music, apple music, we can't split the cost of iCloud Drive.

    So then...

    I just can't buy one 200 GB pack for my whole family, but I have to:
    1x 50 GB for fiance = 1.13 USD
    1x 50 GB for mom = 1.13 USD
    1x 200 GB for me = 3.41 USD

    5.67 USD instead of buying just one bigger pack for everybody.

    i wish icloud were discussed at WWDC more..... Users will know ahead of time what their in for, or not in for..

    Apple won't say anything negativity about their services, but a mention of more cloud services at WWDC would be good, rather than just users waking up one morning and getting a surprise to find now u can sync photos in IOS. or a blurb mention here and there in the news, press etc..

    I guess Apple's always been about "the element of surprise" with some things, and not others.
