Apple launches its first bundle of content on Friday. The group announced this after the announcement of its quarterly figures on Thursday evening. The new service called Apple One combines services and content offers from the group at a monthly price. With this, the iPhone manufacturer wants to boost the business with services, which is already growing strongly anyway – with revenues from the lucrative App Store flowing into the division.
What’s inside in the bundle
In Germany, Apple One includes four services. These are Apple Music (music streaming), Apple TV + (video streaming with original content), Apple Arcade (game service for iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV) and iCloud storage space of 50 GB. The price for this is 14.95 euros, which saves the customer 6 euros compared to individual sales. A family package is also available. It costs 19.95 euros and is valid for up to six people. This includes Apple Music, Apple TV +, Apple Arcade and a 200 GB iCloud package. The saving compared to the single price is 8 euros.
What is missing in this country, however, is the so-called Apple One Premier, the most expensive package. It costs $ 30 in the United States and expands the family package to 2 TB iCloud storage and access to Apple News +, Apple’s magazine and news service, plus Apple Fitness +, a fitness video service. Neither News + nor Fitness + are available in Germany.
Fitness + and test phase
Even in the few markets (USA, Great Britain, Ireland, Canada, New Zealand and Australia) that are initially supported, Fitness + will not be usable at the start today; it comes by the end of the year. The services would cost $ 55 together, so you pay a little more than half for them if you buy in a package.
There will be a test phase of 30 days for all Apple One packages, which is free – however, you will only receive those services free of charge that you have not previously subscribed to. You can also book more iCloud storage if you want. The prices are still missing here.
