Code confirms upcoming ‘Apple One’ subscription bundle
Code extracted from a beta version of the Apple Music app for Android has confirmed earlier rumors that Apple is working on a new “Apple One” bundle, reaffirming reports that Apple Music would be one of the paid Apple services to be included in the discounted package.
Uncovered by 9to5Google, the 3.4.0 beta of Apple Music for Android app says “Your Apple Music subscription will be included in Apple One starting %s. You will not be charged for both subscriptions,” indicating customers who upgrade to Apple One will not be double charged for Apple Music.
The code says “You can manage your Apple One subscription using your iPhone, iPad, Apple TV or Mac.” but no further details were discovered, such as pricing or the other services included in the bundle.
Bloomberg reported last month that Apple would debut an “Apple One” bundle in September that offers access to multiple paid Apple services for one monthly fee.
“Apple One” is expected to offer access to services such as Apple Music, Apple TV+ and Apple Arcade for a lower monthly cost compared to if a user was to pay a subscription for each service individually.
Citing sources within Apple, Bloomberg claim Apple will offer different variations of “Apple One”, with a basic package including Apple Music and Apple TV+, while a more expensive variation will have those two services and the Apple Arcade gaming service. The next tier will add Apple News+, followed by a pricier bundle with extra iCloud storage for files and photos, the report suggests.
