Advisory: Don't trust Apple iCloud as your only storage source

Came across this article today, which relates the case of a widow whose husband had died and Apple denied her access to her deceased husband's iCloud account as "any agreement with Apple is non-transferrable". It took 3 years for her and a pro-bono legal team to win a judgement against Apple, and it serves as an example of why online storage may be convenient, but it should not be your only source of storage. High capacity external drives are cheap, as are NAS systems with secure external access with their own apps.
