The Apple One subscription bundle will launch on Friday, October 30th. Apple CEO Tim Cook announced that the company’s new subscription – which is estimated to increase adoption and the share of revenue generated by services – during Thursday’s quarterly earnings call. The Apple One subscription includes services like Apple Music, Apple TV Plus, Apple Arcade, and iCloud storage. There are several tiers for this package, including the one with Apple Fitness Plus which will not be available immediately.
In Apple’s earnings call held Thursday, Cook said the Apple One will launch “tomorrow,” which means Friday in the US. In India, this would mean Friday evening. Since Apple services traditionally run around 10.30pm IST in India, we can expect Apple One to be available at the same time. But there is still no confirmation on the time side. If you’re interested in getting yourself (or your family) an Apple One subscription, these are the prices you should know.
Apple One Individual Plan it costs Rs 195 per month for the Apple Music package, Apple TV Plus, Apple Arcade, and 50GB of iCloud storage. Individually, the above service subscriptions cost Rs 99 per month for Apple Music, Apple TV Plus, and Apple Arcade each, and Rs 75 for 50GB of iCloud storage. A total of Rs 372. If you use all the services, getting Apple One subscription will be a sensible choice.
There is another plan which is for family members. Apple One Family Plan it costs Rs 365 per month. It offers the Apple Music Family plan, Apple TV Plus, Apple Arcade, and 200GB of iCloud storage that can be shared between a family of six. Individually, Apple Music Family costs Rs 149 per month, Apple TV Plus and Apple Arcade cost Rs 99 each, and 200GB iCloud storage costs Rs 219 per month.
In some countries, such as Australia and the United States, there is a third plan called Apple One Premier, which includes the benefits of Apple One Family plus subscriptions to Apple News Plus and Apple Fitness Plus. However, according to Bloomberg, the Fitness service Plus doesn’t have a launch date yet. It could be available this quarter, Apple CFO Luca Maestri told Bloomberg. Individually, the Apple Fitness Plus subscription for individuals costs $ 9.99 per month.
Apple has high hopes for its Apple One subscription package as it will potentially increase the adoption of its services between iPhone users. This move, however, has angered rival players like Spotify that Apple is trying to defeat in the music streaming market. Spotify is the most popular music streaming service globally, while Apple is in second place. Spotify is concerned about Apple One as it would prevent customers from seeing their choices beyond what will be available in Apple’s subscription package for a much lower price.
In India, Spotify’s individual premium plan costs Rs 119 per month, which is Rs 20 more than Apple Music requires. As part of the Apple One subscription, the cost of Apple Music will drop further, giving Apple an edge over Spotify, at least for its iPhone ecosystem.
