Apple is bundling many of its subscription services into one service in what it now calls Apple One which is not readily available to many countries for now expect the US, UK, Australia and Canada which are countries where Apple News+ seem to be available at this time too. The idea with Apple One is so you can bring multiple subscriptions under one subscription at lesser cost to you.
So basically, all of Apple’s major services are coming to Apple One and that’s Apple Arcade, Apple Fitness+, Apple Music, Apple News, Apple TV+, and iCloud. So, I said most of their services which means AppleCare and Fitness+ will not be part of the bundle for now.
Here’s a breakdown of the cost;
Individual plan is $14.95 per month and it includes Apple Arcade, Apple Music, Apple TV+, and 50GB of iCloud storage. This comes with a $6 per month savings if you would have to book each of these services individually.
Family plan is $19.95 per month and it comes with Apple Arcade, Apple Music, Apple TV+, and 200GB of iCloud storage. This package like Apple Music can be shared with up to six family members. If you go for this, you’ll be saving about $8 if you had to order them individually.
Premier plan costs $29.95 per month and on this you get Apple Arcade, Apple Fitness+, Apple Music, Apple News+, Apple TV+, and 2TB of iCloud storage. Like the family plan, you can be shared with up to six family members. This comes with a whopping $25 savings per month if you had to subscribe individually.
To encourage the use of Apple Card, to you get 3 percent cash back on your monthly payment if you use the card to pay for any of the plans highlighted above.
Right now, there is very little information out there on how to subscribe for Apple One even as we expect Apple to release more information on the service in the coming months. But what we do know for sure is that it will launch in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia and will move on the over 100 more countries and regions over the next year or so.
Apple has been actively launching its services on a cross platform basis which is why Android users can use Apple Music too and they are doing the same with Apple One which will be available on platforms where its individual services are available. So, since Apple Music is available on Android and Windows, it is safe to say you will be able to access the all-in-one service on those platforms too. This is inclusive of browsers because you see Apple TV+ and iCloud are web browser accessible service and it is part of the Apple One service.
