Here’s how much Apple One can save you vs. subscribing to individual services

Two years ago, Apple unveiled Apple One, the easiest way to get all of Apple’s subscription services in one simple plan, including Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, Apple Fitness+, and iCloud. With a single subscription, customers in over 100 countries and regions can enjoy their favorite Apple services across their favorite devices, including iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV, and Mac.

Apple One offers three tiers:

Apple One is the ultimate collection of Apple services for one low monthly price that offers significant savings versus subscribing to individual services.

Simon Hill for Wired:

Naturally, cost savings only apply if you’re subscribed to all of these services separately. If you only currently subscribe to Apple Music and nothing else, for example, then you’re not going to save money by switching to Apple One’s Individual plan. That said, compared to the usual pricing for the included services, the Individual plan saves you $6 per month, the Family plan saves you $8, and the Premier plan saves you $25.

Here’s how the prices break down:

• Apple Music: $10 per month for the individual plan, $15 for the family plan, and $5 for the student plan or voice plan.
• Apple TV+: $5 per month.
• Apple Arcade: $5 per month.
• Apple News+: $10 per month.
• Apple Fitness+: $10 per month or $80 for a year.
• iCloud+: $1 per month for 50 GB, $3 for 200 GB, and $10 for 2 TB.

  1. I thoroughly enjoy my Individual Apple One plan although I couldn’t give a fig about Arcade. However, why doesn’t Apple offer incentivized versions with annual plans? It seems I sometimes read about an annual plan but search as I might it doesn’t seem to exist.

  2. I pay the annual $99 price yearly for Music. I don’t play games very much these days, so the math doesn’t work for me with Apple One Individual. However, it looks like Music will be $109 the next time I pay (shown under my Subscriptions). I just paid $99 about a week ago, so I’m good until next year. I also subscribe to TV+ and iCloud+ at 200GB. FYI, I can keep my current iCloud+ subscription and the 50GB from Apple One (Individual) would add to it for 250GB total. Is Apple planning an “ultra” subscription plan that merges all services with the rumored iPhone subscription?

    1. We have the Family Plan and Arcade is the only feature not used at all by any of the five on our plan. I guess you’re not forced to used it; would be nice to have choices, like adding more iCloud backup instead.

  3. Our family has been using Apple One since its inception and we love it. I have one complaint / request: The Family Plan should include at least 500 GB of iCloud backup and storage. 200 GB is not nearly enough for multiple people on a plan.

  4. Every plan has something I want and others that I don’t care about and contribute no value for the price.

    I wish they would just make it a MENU and let me order A La Carte. They would have me in an instant and for more than I subscribe to now.

    PS: 2 Tb iCloud would have to be a choice. I use that now. The other sizes are irrelevant. My “User” is in the iCloud. I use 5 different Macs regularly. But no matter which one I am on, I can still access all my stuff. And size could be an upgrade as in, “Do you want Frys with that?” 😉
