Apple One Plan: Everything You Need To Know

Apple One bundles up to six of their music, video, fitness, gaming, news and photo services into one subscription

September’s Apple conference at its headquarters in California has brought with it the announcement of the company’s newest innovation. Aptly named Apple One, this brand new service will bind together all the subscription services and packages that Apple offer into one handy subscription – and even better, one single payment (outside of your usual monthly phone bill of course). Subscribers to Apple One can access the huge variety of Apple services on all of their devices, wherever they are, making it easier for customers to manage and enjoy their entertainment.

What does Apple One offer?

Apple One gives you all-access to their six paid subscription services – Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, iCloud and the newly launched Apple Fitness+.

Apple One Plan services

With access to over 70 million songs, Apple Music gives subscribers access to Apple music radio, daily new playlists cultivated by world-renowned musical experts as well as personalised playlists created just for you.

Apple TV+ not only gives you access to film and TV rentals, but additional exclusive access to Apple originals, featuring some of Hollywood’s top talent – including shows like ‘Defending Jacob’, ‘Dickinson’, ‘The Morning Show’, ‘Ted Lasso’ and ‘Central Park’.

Apple Arcade, which was launched earlier in 2020, offers iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Mac and Apple TV users access to over 100 video games, all without ads or in-app purchases.

Apple News+ gives users access to hundreds of leading magazines and newspapers – all at the click of a button.

Apple Fitness+ – perhaps the most exciting addition to the Apple One line-up – has been designed in collaboration with the Apple Watch, due to be launched later this year. The service not only offers access to studio-style workouts and classes from professional trainers but incorporates fitness metrics taken from the Apple Watch to allow people to visualise their workout data like never before and help create personalised workout routines to best meet their fitness goals.

How much does it cost?

Apple’s reasoning behind the launch of Apple One was to save the customer money. It argues that by subscribing to Apple One, you’d be spending less to access more. The subscription is available on three tiers, all at various price points.

On the Individual Tier, you get access to Apple Music, TV+ and Arcade, as well as 50GB of iCloud storage. Whilst this option gives you all of Apple’s entertainment services, it misses out on some other options and is priced at £14.95 per month. According to calculations done by Apple, this service would save customers £6 per month.

On the Family Tier, you get everything listed above but with 200GB of iCloud storage. The benefit of the family plan is that the subscription can be shared with up to six family members, negating the need for multiple subscriptions in one household. The plan is priced at £19.95 per month and would save users £7 per month.

The top-level tier is Premier and is currently the only tier that allows you to access Apple Fitness+ and Apple News+.  Alongside 2TB of iCloud storage, this subscription can be shared with six family members for £29.95pm, saving up to £22 per month with one subscription.

Currently, Individual and Family plans are available in over 100 countries, though Premier is currently restricted to Australia, Canada, the UK and the USA.
