Apple One bundles the company's subscription services starting at $14.95 per month

Apple One bundles the company's subscription services starting at $14.95 per month”

With the Family and Premier plans, up to six family members (or, nudge, wink, friends) can access all the included services with their own personal accounts and preferences.

How many people can be included in the Apple One Family plan? The company said the product will go live "this fall". And with Apple One Premier, the iPhone maker also includes Apple News+, Apple Fitness+, and 2TB of iCloud storage. There's a third Premier tier for this, which isn't going to be available in India right now. The Premier plan will be available in Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the U.S., where Apple News+ is available, and Apple Fitness+ will join later this year.

Apple today announced its Apple One subscription package, a bundle of existing services at a discounted rate, compared with subscribing to each separately. In the US, Apple says you will save over $6 per month with Individual bundle, over $8 with Family, and over $25 with Premier. Well, if it folds TV+ into the ultimate "media bundle" with Apple Music and News+ that resulted from the purchase of the magazine subscription aggregator Texture in 2018.

The new plan was unveiled during a virtual event, named "Time Flies", at which it revealed new Apple Watches and iPads.

Apple Music, TV+, Arcade, and 50GB iCloud in the Individual and Family tiers.

The initiative is a major bid by Apple to achieve the same loyalty that Amazon.com Inc. has won with its Prime program, which combines free shipping with video streaming and many other services for an annual or monthly fee. Unlike Prime, Apple is offering several variations at different prices.

"Apple One makes enjoying Apple subscription services easier than ever, including Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, iCloud, and more", said Eddy Cue, Apple's senior vice president of Internet Software and Services.

Take Apple Music and TV+, for instance.
