In addition to announcing two redesigned Apple iPads and Apple Watches (but no iPhone 12) today at its Time Flies event, Apple also introduced an all-in subscription bundle for its growing inventory of services.
Apple One packages the likes of Apple Music, iCloud storage, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+ and the just-announced Apple Fitness+ into a single subscription that starts from £14.95 ($14.95) per month.
There are three tiers: Individual (£14.95, $14.95 per month) offers Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and 50GB of iCloud storage; Family (£19.95, $19.95 per month) expands that iCloud storage to 200GB and can be shared with up to six family members; and Premier (£29.95, $29.95 per month) adds Apple News+ and Apple Fitness+, takes the iCloud storage limit to 2TB, and can also be shared among six family members.
The Premier plan – which offers the biggest monthly saving (£25, $25) of the three – will only be available in Australia, Canada, the UK and the US, where Apple News+ is available. Apple Fitness+ will join later this year when it launches.
Apple One will be available “this fall” with a 30-day free trial period.
For the uninitiated, Apple Music is the Cupertino giant’s Spotify rival, while Apple TV+ video streaming service is its fairly new competitor to Netflix. Apple Arcade offers 100 games for playing on the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, and Apple TV, and Fitness+ is a coming-soon fitness service for studio-style workouts that are delivered by “world-class” trainers and scored by motivational music. Lastly, Apple News+ is the company’s digital newsstand for a plethora of newspapers and magazines.
