Apple Music, Apple TV+, and Apple News+ are just a handful of the subscription services available. However, if you use multiple Apple services, signing up for each one separately can quickly add up. That’s where Apple One comes in: a pricing plan that bundles Apple’s services for a reduced price.
So, what should you know about Apple One?
To begin, what services are included in the bundle? Bundled pricing is available for Apple Arcade, Apple Fitness+, Apple Music, Apple News+, Apple TV+, and iCloud. The Apple One plans will most likely be adjusted accordingly if Apple introduces new services.
Let us now discuss the plans.
Individual monthly plans are available for $16.95/£16.95, including Apple Arcade, Apple Music, Apple TV+, and 50GB of iCloud storage for one user. This plan saves you $6 per month above a la carte pricing.
The $22.95/£22.95 a month Family plan includes Apple Arcade, Apple Music, Apple TV+, and 200GB of iCloud storage. It can be shared with up to six family members, saving you $8 per month above a la carte.
The Premier plan includes Apple Arcade, Apple Fitness+, Apple Music, Apple News+, Apple TV+, and 2TB of iCloud storage for $32.95/£32.95 per month. It can also be shared with up to six family members, and this plan will save you $25 per month.
Furthermore, if you have an Apple Card, you will receive 3% cash back on your monthly payment if you use it to pay your bill (U.S. only).
What if you require additional iCloud storage? You can increase your iCloud storage capacity for a monthly cost. According to the Apple One website, the extra capacity is a “supplement” to the storage provided in the plan.
AppleCare, Apple’s warranty and support package, is not included in Apple One.
Now comes the essential question: Do my family members use Apple One services? Yes, the answer is yes. If you sign up for the Family or Premier plans, you can utilize the services with up to six family members (you and five others). Family Sharing is also incorporated into Apple TV+ and Apple Arcade.
If you’re still undecided, Apple One comes with a 30-day free trial of any services you don’t already have. When the trial period ends, the service is automatically renewed as part of your plan.
Finally, how do you enroll in Apple One?
Here’s how easily you can set up the Apple One on your device, be it iPhone or iPad:
- Open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
- Tap on your Apple ID name at the top of the screen.
- Select “Subscriptions” from the list of options.
- Tap on “Get Apple One” to view the available plans.
- Choose the Apple One plan that best suits your needs – Individual, Family, or Premier.
- Tap “Start Free Trial” to begin your 30-day free trial.
- Follow the on-screen prompts to confirm your subscription details, such as payment information and billing address.

Once your trial period is over, your subscription will automatically renew at the end of each billing cycle.
To cancel your subscription, go to “Subscriptions” in the Settings app, select the Apple One subscription, and tap “Cancel Subscription.”
Overall, Apple One is a simple method to save money on various Apple services. However, before committing to a plan, consider whether you require all of the services included in the bundle.
