Apple today unveiled several long-awaited "Apple One" service bundles that allow you to subscribe to multiple Apple services for a single monthly fee, saving you some money compared to purchasing each service individually.

There are three Apple One tiers, which include the following services:
  • Individual ($14.95 per month) - Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and 50GB iCloud storage.
  • Family ($19.95 per month, shared with six family members) - Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and 200GB iCloud storage.
  • Premier ($29.95 per month, shared with six family members) - Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, 2TB iCloud storage, Apple News+, and Apple Fitness+.
The Individual plan saves customers $6 compared to purchasing each service separately, while the Family plan offers $8 per month savings. The highest-tier Premier plan saves customers $25 per month and includes the greatest number of services.

The Premier plan is the only plan that offers access to Apple Fitness+, Apple's new fitness-based video lesson service that is set to launch in late 2020.

Fitness+ offers workouts that can be watched on an iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV, with fitness-related data collected by the Apple Watch.

Customers who purchase one of Apple's subscription bundles are able to add additional iCloud storage if necessary according to the fine print on the Apple One website.

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. Fitness+ will be launching later this year.

Spotify is upset for some reason even though they don’t offer anything besides a streaming music service. Not sure how this could hurt them. They are free to get into other markets.

Where is their streaming TV service with Spotify originals? Apple has only been at this for a few years now.

Where is their news subscription service, again, Apple has only been at it for a couple of years.

Why doesn’t Spotify have a gaming subscription service like Steam or Apple with their little Arcade service?

Instead of crying, dip your toes in the water and take a risk. Apple took a risk with those services. It could have backfired, or become a huge success.

Reminds me of Standard oil, squeezing the competition and building up the base even bigger than it already is

I'd like to know what Apple would charge the Family Plan subscribers to just add the 2 terabyte iCloud storage. If $25, that's still a significant savings. We are paying Apple $29 a month for Music + TV + 2TB iCloud. so the Premier would save us nothing but it would also give us services we don't need (News, Arcade, Fitness).

these tiers don’t really make sense. There’s no particular reason to believe, for example, that a single user wouldn’t want fitness+ or news+. There’s no particular reason to assume a user would need all four of the base services rather than 2 or 3.

They need to allow customization of the bundle for this to appeal more broadly. Like, why can’t I bundle 2Tb iCloud with Apple Music and fitness+? Or just news+ and arcade? Or everything except Apple Music?

It seems like they primarily base these bundles on Music ($10 for the individual, and then $15 for family or premier).

And then if you're a user of Music and Storage, they start to make sense. I imagine music and storage are their most common services.

I know myself I currently pay 30 (15 for music, 10 for storage, 5 for arcade). Right off the bat it'll essentially give me TV, News, Fitness for free.

Premier is tempting especially since you can share. My Apple Music subscription is paid through the end of 2023. I'm assuming they would pro-rate that somehow if I got Premier.

I don't see how you save even if you want everything. I have year of Apple TV+ that started two days ago. So Apple Music + Apple Arcade + 50 GB iCloud is $5 + $5 + 1 = $11. That's $4 more than buying them one at a time.

In for the Premier tier. Already paying £14.99 for Apple Music Family Membership, £9.99 for News+ (Cheaper than seperate BBC Music, Time & The Atlantic subscriptions) and £6.99 for 2TB storage for entire family’s evidence and file backups. Currently on the free trial for TV+ and we’d likely subscribe when the trial ends, so we’re already better off without including Arcade, Tv+ and Fitness+ based on our current subscriptions.

Very happy these bundles are being offered.

I am currently paying $4.99 for apple music with my student discount. Wonder if Apple plans a student bundle price because right now it doesn't make sense for me to go to Apple One.
