Apple's new Apple One series of services bundles launches on Friday in over 100 countries and regions, but the top Premier tier will be limited to the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada.


The limited rollout of the $29.95 Premier tier is down to the fact that Apple News+ is currently only available in the above countries. Apple News+ is exclusive to the Premier tier, along with Apple Fitness+, which isn't expected to arrive until later in the year.

Here's how the Individual, Family, and Premier tiers stack up:
  • Individual: Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and 50GB of iCloud storage for $14.95 per month
  • Family: Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and 200GB of iCloud storage for $19.95 per month, can be shared among up to six family members
  • Premier: Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, Apple Fitness+, and 2TB of iCloud storage for $29.95 per month, can be shared among up to six family members
Apple One's Individual tier offers savings of $6 per month, while the Family plan offers savings of over $8 per month, and the Premier plan offers a savings of over $25 per month, compared to standard monthly pricing. Apple One includes a 30-day free trial for any services that customers do not already have.

Can I get a Family bundle and extend its iCloud storage to 2TB? The Premier bundle is not available in EU.

You'll need to ask Apple on that one but in my experience they are pretty good at recognising and refunding produce overlap gaps... apart from my iTunes in the Cloud that I ran for 2 more years not realising that service was also included in Apple Music subscription :p

Premier isn't available outside of English speaking countries mostly because of Fitness+ which is too bad because I don't need a localised version. I use all my services in English, watch all my content in English and speak English most of the time.

I wonder if changing your region would work for this as I was really looking forward to Fitness+.

It kind of makes sense to offer the premier tier only in countries where people can actually benefit from it.
I can hear people already complaining about Apple taking the money and then offering nothing in return...

Makes sense for me, given all I have family-wide and intending to take Apple Fitness it will save me money so a no-brainer really.

Really looking forward to Apple Fitness, but I’m also excited to try Apple Arcade which will essentially be ‘free’ (I know that nothing’s ever really free...) on the premier plan.

not really worth it anyway, "just" buy a new Apple Device and you get TV+ one year for free and Arcade is another 3 months trial.

I have been using an US Apple ID probably since 2008 without any problems. I usually buy gift cards online which actually saves me money because 99 $ isn't 99 EUR

The premier pricing in the UK is weirdly high compared to the lower tiers and costs of the individual items. Distorted by the 2tb iCloud storage plan actually being quite good value in the UK compared to the US. But it means the total value proposition is just not there.

I pay £15 per month for Apple Music and £7 for 2tb iCloud. I'm not that bothered about the other things but would pay a little extra a month to get them. Not £8 though.

If I still want Fitness+ in English despite living in a non-English speaking country, I should be allowed to have (and pay) for it :(
And here we have the problem with all-in bundles, since the premier tier would give you also access to News+, which Apple may then not have the distribution rights for your country.
Since Fitness+ did not start yet... maybe you can sign up for that separately.

That's absolutely right, but why is that saving you money?
