Apple has made its services subscription bundles – Apple One available to the public. Combining Apple TV Plus, Apple Arcade, Apple Music, and iCloud for a discounted monthly price. But there’s also a premier plan which also includes Apple News Plus and coming later this year – Fitness Plus.
In this guide, you can learn more about Apple One, including what it is, pricing, how much you can potentially save, and how to sign up.
An increasing number of services are available from Apple, all of which are available for a monthly cost (some have annual plans). Services include Apple Music, Apple Arcade, Apple TV Plus, Apple News Plus, iCloud, and coming soon – Fitness Plus. More information on these services is as follows:
Apple Music, over 70 million songs, thousands of playlists, daily selections from the world’s best music experts. Plus groundbreaking Apple Music Radio, and innovative features like time-synced lyrics.
Apple TV+, stream Apple Originals from today’s most imaginative and respected creators in 4K HDR/Dolby Vision. With new content being added every month.
Apple Arcade, get 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+, premium access to leading newspapers and hundreds of magazines.
Apple Fitness+, the first fitness experience built for Apple Watch, arriving later this year. Apple Fitness+ intelligently incorporates metrics from Apple Watch for users to visualise right on their iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV, offering a first-of-its-kind personalised workout experience. 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.
iCloud, keep your photos, videos, files, and more safely stored and available across all your devices.
Apple One aims to offer these services in a bundle to make signing up and using the services easier. But best of all, Apple One pricing ends up being much cheaper than subscribing to the services separately.
Pricing and savings
Three teirs of Apple One are avaialble, one aimed at an individual, a family, and an all-in-one tier. In Australia, pricing for Apple One is as follows:

Every Apple One plan include savings when compared to buying monthly subscriptions to each service. The ‘Individual’ plan offers savings of A$9.50 inc. GST. While the ‘Family’ plan includes savings of A$12.50 inc. GST. Lastly, the ‘Premier’ plan brings a massive A$39 inc. GST in savings.
At this stage there appears to be no student pricing for Apple One – unfortuently.
