As part of its quarterly earnings conference call, the company announced that its service bundle Apple One will be officially launched tomorrow, Friday the 30th. Apple One combines Apple Music, iCloud, Apple Arcade and Apple TV+ at discounted prices for individuals and families.
The top package Apple One Premier for $30 per month includes 2 TB of iCloud and Apple News+. It will also include access to Apple’s upcoming fitness video service Fitness+, which will debut before the end of this year.
Apple One Personal is priced at $14.95 per month and comes with 50 GB of iCloud, Apple Music for a single account, Apple TV+ and Apple Arcade.
Users can choose the Apple One Family plan, which is priced at $1
Apple One Premier is priced at $30, and the family plan is upgraded with an additional 1.8 TB iCloud space, with access to Apple News + and Apple Fitness +. Apple Fitness+ will provide new fitness classes every week and has a rich integration with Apple Watch fitness apps. However, Fitness+ will not be available tomorrow, and it will be launched before the end of this year. All these services alone will cost $55 per month, so the Premier plan represents a nearly 50% discount.
Note: In the individual and family levels, both Arcade and TV+ support family sharing. Although Apple One individuals and Apple One families are launched in more than 100 countries/regions, Apple One Premier is only available in regions where Apple News+ is available: the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia.
The launch of Apple’s subscription service bundle will help Apple expand the coverage of its new content services, such as TV+ and Arcade. It also increases competition with Spotify in the field of music streaming; since every Apple One package includes Apple Music, customers can choose to devote themselves to Apple and give up Spotify altogether. (Spotify has complained that this is “unfair.”)
iOS 14.1 will automatically show customers Apple One bundle options, thus highlighting the best plan for them.
Apple also said that if customers need more content than what is included in Apple One, they can add value to iCloud storage by purchasing additional items. This means for the first time that a single Apple ID can have more than 2 TB of iCloud space.
