So is Apple One subscription pack unites services of the company in one place - Apple One is already a reality.
The expected subscription bundle of the company, which will collect different services at a collective price, will finally come out this autumn in three different offers, thus lowering the price that would have to contract each separately. However, Apple has not yet specified dates or countries.
This was confirmed by Tim Cook, CEO of the company, in the online presentation held on Tuesday. During the event, one of the most anticipated of the Year for the Cupertino firm, there were also other great announcements such as the new iPad, the Apple Watch or Fitness+, a new training app with personalized classes.
Subscription services are an increasingly important business for technology companies. So, Apple has decided to put them all together in Apple One: Music (Apple Music), Video Games (Apple Arcade), cloud Storage (iCloud) and VOD (Apple TV+) in the basic package, adding others to the premium package.
In this way, the company has confirmed several closed packs where the user can choose the one that best suits him, depending on the services he needs. Apple Music and Apple TV+ would be the main ones, to which would be added Apple Arcade, Apple News+ and more iCloud space in the following levels. Ultimately, the top package will include a new fitness - oriented service with virtual classes.
The plans will be as follows: Individual, Family and Premier. The first will start for 14.95 euros a month, including Music, TV+, Arcade and 50GB in iCloud. The Familar, for its part, will have the same services but with more storage in iCloud for 19.95 euros, while the Premier, which is only available in some countries, will add to the above News+, Fitness+ and 2TB of storage in iCloud for 29.95 dollars a month.
The savings on each bundle, as the latest rumors have pointed out, would be between 2 and 5 dollars compared to acquire the services separately, although Apple has not confirmed this information.
Apple One subscription pack unites services
Services are one of the fastest growing business areas of the company in the last decade, accounting for more than 50 billion dollars (42 billion euros) to the company. So much so that, despite the catastrophic effects of the pandemic in sectors such as Apple Care —Technical Assistance and warranty for devices— others have experienced record numbers due to confinement, such as the App Store, iCloud or Apple TV+.
Last August Apple overcame the barrier of 2 trillion market capitalization. A historic milestone achieved, in large part, to the diversification of its businesses. Apple has been watering down two segments for years: wearable, with its Apple Watch, and services, with its digital entertainment platforms for movies and series, video games, music or media.
These will be the services included in the different packs:
-Apple Music: millions of songs, playlists, daily selections from music experts, Apple Music radio and new facets, such as lyrics synchronized with music.
-Apple TV+: Apple'S VOD where you can find the Apple Originals, different original series and movies and the whole range of Apple film licenses.
-Apple Arcade: unlimited access to over 100 games for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac and Apple TV, with no ads or in-app purchases.
-Apple News+: premium access to leading newspapers and hundreds of magazines around the world.
-Apple Fitness+: the new subscription service with which to enhance exercise and health in the Apple ecosystem presented this Tuesday.
-iCloud: securely store photos, videos, files and other documents to make them available on all devices via cloud.
