New Apple One Subscription Bundle Offers Savings Up to $25 per Month

Friday, 18 Sep, 2020

The $15 Apple One bundle includes Apple Music, Apple TV+, the Apple Arcade game service and iCloud storage.

Apple still makes the most money from its iPhones, but services have increasingly become an important part of its business.

Spotify has already issued an antitrust complaint about Apple One, Apple's bundling of its own online services.

Along with the launch of the new iPad Air, Apple unveiled its new Apple One subscription bundles this week.

Individual: Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and 50GB of iCloud storage for $14.95 per month. That also includes Apple Music, Apple TV+ and Apple Arcade, but ups the coud storage to 200GB.

Apple One will use complimentary 30-day trials for any services you do not now use.

The offerings are geared toward families, meaning they will work with Apple's Family Sharing system that provides access to as many as six people for each service.

As Apple announced its new subscription bundles, I kept thinking back to this tweet from Peter Kafka of Recode, written in August, back when Bloomberg reported (accurately, it turns out) on Apple's bundle plans.

Apple promises that trainers will post fresh workouts every week with a range of lengths, disciplines, and music genres.

Apple plans to add a new set of videos each week, all varying in terms of intensity, time, and exercise type.

When Apple TV+ launched a year ago, it started with just nine shows.

iCloud, which keeps customers photos, videos, files, and more safely stored and available across their devices.

Apple One bundles will be available later this fall, and one-month free trials will be available for services that you haven't already tried. This plan is now available in Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the U.S. only.

Paying for a single subscription price instead of separate subscriptions for the services saves the average Apple user about RM38.70. An individual plan starts at $14.95 a month and a family plan costs $19.95 a month. Savings based on standard monthly pricing. The premier plan also gets you the subscription to Apple News+.

The Apple Watch Series 6 will retail for $399. It's machine-agnostic, meaning you don't need any particular equipment-aside from the Apple Watch.

Apple is already involved in a legal wrangle with USA video game and software developer Epic Games, which is trying to convince a California court to reinstate its Fortnite game on the Apple App Store pending legal proceedings.
