The Apple One subscription bundle is now available in the US and abroad, combining several services.
The new bundled subscription allows Apple users to pay one monthly price for Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, iCloud, and select other services. New users can subscribe to the bundle via the App Store on iOS.
The Apple One subscription offers three different tiers at launch. The Individual tier starts at $14.95, the Family Plan is available at $19.95, and a $29.95 Premier plan bumps up iCloud storage. You can see the full scope of the new Apple One subscription plans in the image below.

How to Sign Up for Apple One Subscription

- Tap on Your Name at the top of the app.
- Tap on ‘Subscriptions.’
- Tap on ‘Apple One’ to see available options.
Note: If you don’t see the prompt to subscribe to Apple One, just wait. It appears to be rolling out in waves.
Subscribing to Apple One does save a pretty penny if you’re already using several services. The Individual plan saves users around $6 monthly; the Family Plan saves $8 monthly. Finally, the Premier Plan offers a whopping discount of $25 monthly. Of course, that’s only relevant if you’re planning to use all the services in the first place.
Apple says its Individual and Family Apple One subscription will be available in 100 countries. The Premier Plan is limited to the US, UK, Australia, and Canada. That’s because Apple News+ is only available in those countries. It’s also worth noting that Fitness+ is not yet available, despite being part of the Premier Plan.
“Apple One, launching tomorrow, is the easiest way for users to enjoy Apple’s services, like Music, TV+, Arcade, iCloud, News+ and Fitness+,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said today during Apple’s earnings call.
The Apple One subscription is intended to relieve subscription fatigue. Will it, though? With Netflix and YouTube TV hiking prices this year, will bundling make a difference?
Some investors are now asking Apple why they don’t apply their bundling approach to the iPhone and AirPods. Tim Cook says nothing like that is in the pipeline. Apple One exists because Apple’s customers asked for it, Cook explained.
“We had customers coming to us and asking for an easier way to buy all of our services. And we wanted to provide that, and we’re looking forward to tomorrow to getting Apple One out there,” he told investors during the earnings call.
