What you need to know
- Apple One is now available to people around the world.
- The subscription bundle has three tiers available.
- People will save money compared with subscribing separately.
Apple One, the subscription bundle, is now rolling out to users around the world just as Tim Cook said it would.
The new bundle will include various services including Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, iCloud, and Apple Fitness+ all under one roof. Although the last one isn't available yet just yet.
Signing up for the Apple One bundle is as simple as you might expect, once you've decided which one you're looking for.
The three tiers go something like this:
- Individual includes Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and 50GB of iCloud storage for $14.95 per month. Savings: around $6/month.
- Family includes Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and 200GB of iCloud storage for $19.95 per month, and can be shared among up to six family members. Savings: around $8/month.
- Premier, where available, includes Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, Apple Fitness+, and 2TB of iCloud storage for $29.95 per month, and can be shared among up to six family members. Savings: $25/month. If you're an individual, you're still save $20/month here.
So how do you sign up?
- Open the App Store on iPhone or iPad.
- Tap your profile picture in the top-right corner.
- Tap Subscriptions.
- Tap the banner advertising Apple One.
Pretty simple, right?
Apple even seems to have things figured out for those people whose Apple ID for App Store payments differs from the one associated with their iCloud storage, too.

Having grown up using PCs and spending far too much money on graphics card and flashy RAM, Oliver switched to the Mac with a G5 iMac and hasn't looked back. Since then he's seen the growth of the smartphone world, backed by iPhone, and new product categories come and go. Current expertise includes iOS, macOS, streaming services, and pretty much anything that has a battery or plugs into a wall. Oliver also covers mobile gaming for iMore, with Apple Arcade a particular focus. He's been gaming since the Atari 2600 days and still struggles to comprehend the fact he can play console quality titles on his pocket computer.
Do I need to cancel my individual services I already have or the ones my wife has if I selected family or premiere?
I was wondering the same thing. I have annual subscription to Apple Arcade. Not sure if they can curtail the rest of the time and use toward an Apple One subscription.
We tried to get the premier family plan. My wife and I both have 2 Apple ID's (with a lot of purchased music each on the original ID) and the Apple representative said we could do the premier family plan and share iCloud storage but we would would have to repurchase our music. Has anyone else had this problem?
