Apple has rolled out its Apple One subscription bundle, which combines several services — including Apple Music, Apple TV Plus, and Apple Arcade — for a single monthly price. Apple One also includes additional iCloud storage, with the allotment going up the more you pay.
Both the Family and Premier plans can be shared with up to five other people who are linked to your Apple account. Note that only the Premier tier includes Apple News Plus and the upcoming Apple Fitness Plus service.
To sign up for a free trial of Apple One and start using the included services:
If you eventually decide that the bundle isn’t worth it, you can cancel Apple One at any time from the same subscriptions area in your settings. Apple Card holders will get 3 percent cash back if they use the card to sign up for Apple One.
Apple has said it will launch Apple One in over 100 countries this fall. The Premier plan will be more limited, however; it’s only available in Australia, Canada, the UK, and the US since that’s where Apple News Plus is offered. The Apple News Fitness Plus service is expected to launch later this year.
Based on Apple’s estimates, if you were paying for all of the included services at full price, “the Apple One Individual plan offers a savings of over $6 per month, while the Family plan offers a savings of over $8 per month, and the Premier plan offers a savings of over $25 per month.”
But remember that Verizon now includes Apple Music with some of its cellular plans, and you might already be getting free Apple TV Plus for a few more months if you recently bought an Apple device. So you’ll still have to weigh whether the combined bundle (and convenience of one price for everything) makes sense.
