Verizon plans to become the first U.S. carrier to include Apple One as a free perk with an eligible plan alongside the launch of iPhone 14 models later this month, according to information obtained by MacRumors from a carrier source.

Apple One will likely be included with Verizon's most expensive "5G Get More" unlimited data plan, which costs $90 per month for one person. The fully-loaded plan already includes Apple Music, the option of Apple Arcade or Google Play Pass, Disney+, Hulu, ESPN+, 600GB of Verizon Cloud storage, and more as free perks. It's unclear if existing subscribers will receive Apple One or if the offer will be for new customers only.

Following in the footsteps of British carrier EE, Verizon will likely offer Apple One's individual tier, which normally costs $14.95 per month and includes Apple Music, Apple Arcade, Apple TV+, and iCloud+ with 50GB of storage.

It's unclear exactly when Verizon plans to share this news, but the carrier will likely make an announcement at some point in September alongside Apple's introduction of iPhone 14 models. Apple is widely expected to unveil the iPhone 14, Apple Watch Series 8, and more during an event at Steve Jobs Theater on September 7, and the devices should go on sale by September 16 in the U.S. and many other countries.

Verizon offering Apple One with an eligible plan could help to attract customers to the carrier heading into the holiday shopping season. The deal could also further bolster Apple's services business, which set a June quarter record with $19.6 billion revenue and was the company's second largest revenue source behind iPhone sales.

These services that are normally bundled with a phone plan like this, can you access them on other devices? Say, if I go with this plan, would I be able to use the Apple One on a non Verizon device like my MacBook Pro over WiFi?

This could be interesting if it's the Premier Plan that gets included.

My preference would be to reduce the price of their plan
They have cheaper plans that don’t include as many subscriptions. Carriers are now offering these mega packages for customers who are already subscribing to many of these packages separately. Basically trying to become the new cable companies because people are a lot less likely to cancel their phone number than any of these individual services.

This is how upsell works. Most people who subscribe to higher priced plans don't necessarily use more high-speed data and hotspot. But add things like Apple One or Disney Bundle, some cave in.

Yea, I have an older unlimited shared plan and was considering “downgrading” but that would have meant no hotspot… I think I have Apple Music actually on my plan but will not use it. I want a plan that has what I want/need and no “upsell”.
Like in a post above, the old cable company mentality is coming to wireless…

I currently have Verizon (I'm actually very curious about this plan but will wait until next week to see what other specials they may come out with)

With my current Verizon plan, I have apple music included. Assuming it works the same way it does with my current plan, I logged in with my verizon credentials, it connected to apple, recognized the email address was the same and connected the two automatically.

So, based on only that, I am guessing you can.

prepaid I pay $25 and $30 extra a month is still not enough for me to go postpaid for the perks. I get Hulu for $2 and I’m boycotting Disney but espn would be nice but not a big deal.

Why does the article refer to these subscriptions as “free perks”? They aren‘t. They’re why the plan is $90 per head 🤪

I'm excited about this. I've got four lines and two are on Get More. Those lines are only $55 each due to the quantity of lines. I don't pay for Hulu/Disney+, I don't pay for Apple Music, I get $10/mo off my iPad line, $5/mo off my watch line. I don't pay for Google Play Pass or Apple Arcade. Now I won't be paying for at least iCloud and AppleTV+. Heck yes. I am all for this.
