Just a few short years ago, Apple was much maligned for the fact that it had failed to maintain an ecosystem of subscription services. After a number of failures including the likes of .Mac and MobileMe, Apple finally succeeded with the introduction of iCloud. Now, the firm has finally introduced one bundle to rule them all in the form of Apple One.
As has been rumoured for months, the offering is a tiered subscription service which will enable users to piece together many of its top-selling subscription programs under three distinct packages. Interestingly, the service not only includes the company’s lifestyle services, but further additional iCloud storage.
Apple One is available in three distinct packages, which include:
Apple One Individual
The Individual plan bundles together the likes of Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and 50 GB of iCloud storage. The plan retails for $14.95 USD per month.
Apple One Family
Apple’s Family plan includes Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and 200GB of iCloud storage, and costs $19.95 USD per month.
Apple One Premier
The Premier plan offers Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, Apple Fitness+, and 2TB of iCloud storage. It costs $29.95 per month.
Notably, the Premier plan is the only bundle which includes the company’s newly announced Fitness+ program, which enables customers to tune into pre-recorded workouts. Viewers with a compatible Apple Watch will additionally be able to display their vitals on-screen, and attempt to achieve the results desired by relevant instructors.
According to Apple, each plan offers savings relative to subscribing to each service seperately; the Individual plan represents a $6 USD per month saving, the Family plan will see consumers spend $8 USD less per month, and the Premier plan introduces a $25 USD price cut.
