Apple One services bundles are reportedly on the way—here’s what they could cost

When Apple launched its slate of services last year, there was one thing missing: bundles. According to a new report from Bloomberg that’s going to change this year, as Apple is preparing to launch “a series of bundles” that will package its services into lower monthly prices.

As Mark Gurman reports, the bundles are dubbed Apple One and are planned to launch alongside the iPhone 12 “as early as October.” Details are sparse, but he says, “A basic package will include 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.”

Obviously, it makes sense. While Apple’s services are very competitive, bundles will lower prices even further and entice new users to try them out and, hopefully, stick around. For example, Disney+ offers a subscription bundle with Hulu and ESPN+ for $13 a month, a savings of $6 over the usual monthly cost for all three services. So it got me thinking: What would an Apple services bundle cost?

First, let’s take a look at what they cost now on a monthly basis:

Apple Music: $10/month

Apple TV+: $5/month

Apple Arcade: $5/month

Apple News+: $10/month
