Apple One services bundle is now available, Fitness+ to follow later


Apple’s services bundle for Apple Music, Apple TV Plus, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, and Fitness+ has launched.

The Cupertino company first announced Apple One during its September 2020 event. Its chief financial officer, Luca Maestri, later told Bloomberg that Apple One would go live Friday 30 October 2020. So, as expected, you can now subscribe to three different bundle tiers: Individual, Family, and Premier. Apple One’s Individual and Family plans are available in over 100 countries and regions, including in the US and UK.

The Premier plan also launched, but only in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia – or where Apple News+ is available. Fitness+ won’t join Apple One until later.

Here’s how much each Apple One tier costs at launch (keep in mind all new Apple One subscribers get 30 days free to try the service):

  • Individual: You get Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and 50GB of iCloud storage for £14.95/$14.95 per month.
  • Family: Up to six members of your family get Apple Music, Apple TV+, and Apple Arcade, and 200GB of iCloud for £14.95/$19.95 per month.
  • Premier: Includes all the other benefits, but ups the iCloud storage to 2TB per month and adds subscriptions to the News+ magazine and newspaper service and the newly announced Fitness+ service for £29.95/$29.95 per month.

Fitness+ doesn’t have a firm launch date, but Maestri told Bloomberg the app will launch in the US “this quarter”, or by the end of the year, with training for yoga, cycling, running, strength exercises, and other types of workouts. It’ll cost $9.99 a month when not bundled with Apple One.
