The Apple One services bundle launched on October 30, 2020. There are three different tiers providing different storage and service options to users. With the earliest about to have to pay for Apple TV+ for the first, it is worth once again considering which bundle, if any, is right for you.

Picking the Right Apple One Tier

First of all, this is what all the individual services cost if you pay for each one on a monthly basis.

Apple Services Price Breakdown

Service Price (US$)
iCloud 50 GB 0.99
iCloud 200 GB 2.99
iCloud 2TB 9.99
Apple TV+ 4.99
Apple Arcade 5.99
Apple News+ 9.99
Apple Fitness+ 9.99
Apple Music 9.99
Apple Music Family Sharing 14.99

Here is how this all breaks down when compared to the Apple One bundle:

Apple Services Price Breakdown

Tier Name Bundle Price (US$) Total a la Carte (US$) No TV+ (US$) No TV+ Or Arcade (US$) A la carte With iCloud, TV+, Music (US$) Bundle & Fitness+ (US$)
Individual (iCloud 50GB, TV+, Arcade, Music) 14.95 21.96 16.97 10.98 15.97 24.94
Family (Individual + 200GB and Music Sharing) 19.95 28.96 13.97 17.98 22.97 29.94
Premier (Family + 2TB + News+, Fitness+) 29.95 55.94 50.95 44.96 29.97

There are obviously a number of factors to consider when deciding which version of Apple One, if any, is for you. The deal for getting Apple TV+ free for a year when buying certain new products ends on July 30, 2021. Those with a new iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV, or Mac, get three months of Arcade for free.  Users get three months of Fitness+ free too with a new Apple Watch. Furthermore, if you pay for any or all of these services on an annual basis, again, the math may not work in your favor. However, an increasing number of regular users could save money by signing up to an Apple One bundle.
