Apple One services bundle now available

Apple One is now available for users. 

First announced at its September iPad event, the Apple One subscription bundles together Apple’s services – Apple Music, TV+ and Arcade– in a variety of tiers.

The basic Individual plan will include access to the services  50GB of iCloud storage for US$14.95 per month. By comparison, Apple Music normally costs US$9.99 per month, while Apple TV+ and Apple Arcade alone are US$4.99 per month and 50GB of iCloud storage is US$0.79 per month.

An additional five dollars ups the iCloud storage to 200GB and adds a family subscription to Apple Music, while the US$29.95 Premier tier includes subscriptions to Apple News+ and the upcoming Fitness+ service along with 2TB of cloud storage.

Fitness+ will be available for US$9.95 as a standalone service, and promises to be a tailor-made exercise programme which integrates the monitoring of Apple Watch into the workout. An example given was being able to watch a coach on your TV via Apple TV, with a real time display of heart rate and calories burned on the big screen.

Apple said that the Individual and Family plans will be available in over 100 countries, but the Premier service is limited to the US, UK, Australia and Canada – countries where Apple News+ is available.

Lori Malm, director of services at Apple, explained that “Apple One give you and your family all the services you love from one subscription.”
