Apple launches Apple One subscription bundle



The Apple One subscription bundle is here. The previously announced offering packages up to six Apple services as follows, and can save consumers who pay for these services on an a la carte basis a decent amount of cash.

  • Individual includes Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and 50GB of iCloud storage for $14.95 per month. (Monthly savings if you subscribe individually is up to $6.)

  • Family includes Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and 200GB of iCloud storage for $19.95 per month, and can be shared among up to six family members. (Monthly savings up to $8.)

  • Premier, where available, includes Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, Apple Fitness+, and 2TB of iCloud storage for $29.95 per month, and can be shared among up to six family members. (Monthly savings up to $25.)

It is worth noting that the Apple Watch-powered Apple Fitness+ service that is part of the Premier plan--think Apple's answer to Peloton--won’t launch until later in the year. Visit apple.com/apple-fitness-plus to get notified when it is available.

You can sign up for an Apple One plan on an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Apple TV running iOS 14, iPadOS 14, or tvOS 14. When macOS Big Sur launches later in the fall, you’ll also be able to sign up on a Mac computer.

To sign up on the iPhone, go to Settings, tap your Apple ID and tap Subscriptions. Apple will recommend a plan based on services you currently subscribe to. And when you sign up for individual services, Apple says it will automatically recommend an Apple One plan if it’s a better value than any services you already pay for. 

Subscribers will receive a single invoice. You can try any of the services you don’t already have for 30 days, but existing subscriptions are not eligible for the free trial.
