Apple subscription services now include Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, iCloud, and more recently – Fitness+. All of which are available for a monthly fee (and some yearly). To make enjoying these services easier to enjoy, Apple has unveiled Apple One.
Apple One bundles Apple’s subscription services in one simple plan at one set monthly price. Offering savings of up to A$39 inc. GST and the ability to share selected plans with up to six family members.
“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. “With Apple One, you can access the best of Apple entertainment across all your favourite devices with one simple subscription.”
Apple Music, with over 70 million songs, thousands of playlists, daily selections from the world’s best music experts, the groundbreaking Apple Music Radio, and innovative features like time-synced lyrics.
Apple TV+, home to Apple Originals from today’s most imaginative and respected creators. Apple TV+ has already earned over 100 awards recognitions, including 18 Emmy nominations, for its originals — more than any other streaming service in its first 10 months.
Apple Arcade, which gives players unlimited access to more than 100 incredibly fun games across iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, and Apple TV, all with no ads or in-app purchases.
Apple News+, which provides premium access to leading newspapers and hundreds of magazines.

Everyone from beginners to committed exercisers can access studio-style workouts delivered by inspiring world-class trainers and underscored by motivating music from renowned artists.
