The announcement of Apple One

Apple One is now official, bundling together the iPhone-maker's services.

Apple Inc. unveiled a series of subscription bundles, a long-awaited move that Wall Street hopes will spur more growth in services revenue.

Apple Music, TV+, Arcade, and 50GB iCloud in the Individual and Family tiers.

An Apple One bundle to be available later this year, likely after the launch of keenly expected new iPhone models, will start at $15 monthly and include a freshly launched fitness service tied to Apple Watch.

The "individual" plan includes Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade and 50GB of iCloud storage, for $14.95 a month. If you upgrade to Apple One Family, you get 200GB of iCloud storage, and all the benefits can be shared with up to six family members, as part of Family Sharing. Well, if it folds TV+ into the ultimate "media bundle" with Apple Music and News+ that resulted from the purchase of the magazine subscription aggregator Texture in 2018.

The discounts: Apple One Individual is $6 less per month (compared with buying the services separately at standard pricing); the Family plan is an $8 monthly discount, and the Premier plan offers a savings of over $25 per month.

Here is the latest iPad Air
It has a 10.9-inch liquid retina display measuring at 2360 x 1650 px with a fully laminated, True Tone, anti-reflective coating. The new tablet makes use of new Apple chips that allow it to be 40 per cent faster than the previous model, the company says.

How many people can be included in the Apple One Family plan? Apple One offers a 30-day free trial for any services that customers do not already have.

Is the Apple One subscription price worth it?

Take Apple Music and TV+, for instance. On its own, Fitness+ will be $9.99 per month or $79.99 per year.

Things get a bit more complicated from there, with various tiers of iCloud storage added onto the final total. And if you pay for your Apple One subscription using your Apple Card you'll receive 3% cash back.

Starting this fall, customers with Apple subscriptions will be recommended the right Apple One plan for them so they can sign up with a tap from any Apple device.
