During Apple’s virtual event today, they announced the launch of a new subscription service with three different bundles for customers. The services included in an Apple One subscription bundle are Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, Apple Fitness+, and iCloud Storage.

By signing up, customers in over 100 countries and regions will be able to access their subscribed services over their iPhones, iPads, iPod touches, Apple TVs, and Macs.

Current customers who have a subscription to any Apple service will soon start receiving recommendations on what Apple One bundle is best for them. Apple One includes a 30-day free trial for any services that customers do not already have.

These bundles show US pricing and the Premiere Bundle won't be available in Singapore

Singapore customers will be able to sign up for 2 out of the 3 available bundles as some of the services are not available here yet.

The local bundles and prices are:

  • Individual includes Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and 50GB of iCloud storage for S$16.95 per month.
  • Family includes Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and 200GB of iCloud storage for S$22.95 per month, and can be shared among up to six family members.

Customers in Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States where Apple News+ is available, and Apple Fitness+ will join later this year, will be able to sign up for the Premier plan that includes:

  • Premier, where available, includes Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, Apple Fitness+, and 2TB of iCloud storage for US$29.95 per month, and can be shared among up to six family members.

By subscribing to a bundle Apple says that a customer would save S$8 a month on the individual plan, while the Family plan gave a savings of over S$9 per month. Customers on the Premier plan can enjoy a savings of over US$25 per month.

 

Bringing fitness front and centre

Services like Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, and iCloud are familiar to us already.

Apple Fitness+ is a new service from Apple designed to help you stay fit. The service provides workouts from some of world's best trainers, which you can follow on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV.

Fitness+ exercise programs will include yoga, cycling, dance, strength, core, HIIT, rowing, and many others. Exercise programs will be refreshed with new workouts every week and you can also choose custom music while you workout, with options that sync with Apple Music.

At launch, Apple Fitness+ will be available in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States. If you purchase a new Apple Watch, you'll get three months of the service for free. There are no details yet on pricing and availability for Singapore but we will update this article once we get it.
