Greece has been hit by bank holidays and capital control, but Apple is offering a bit of help to its Greek customers in a way only a technology giant can.

In an email to Greek users of its iCloud service, the tech behemoth offered to extend their storage plans for an extra 30 days without any extra costs.

Here's the message obtained by CNBC:

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

"Our sympathies are with our customers in Greece who have experienced an interruption in their iCloud accounts as a results of the fiscal crisis," an Apple representative told CNBC.
